Visitor Reviews

“We have a blast every time we go. Membership is worth every penny—especially since it gets you into other museums when you travel!”

Megan Wilde

"Incredible interactive experience for the whole family. Extremely kid friendly. VERY friendly and helpful staff. We were so taken in we bought a family annual pass so we can bring all our grandkids throughout the year."

David Yoder

Our family of seven really enjoyed the visit. We purchased a membership, as the $80-ish price was far more economical in the long run. Everything is super interactive and kid-friendly. Every single one of us, from ages one to 10 to adult, felt welcome to explore and learn.”

Candace Perisho

"Exploration Place is truly a gift to the Wichita area! So much so that despite the fact that 5/6 of the exhibition area doesn't change at all; on a regular basis, our family has maintained a yearly membership with them for 4 years running, and will continue to until our daughter loses all interest in going there at all."

David Montgomery

"This was such a fun place. Our kids (ages 5, 4, and 2) loved it. We spent a couple of hours there and only did a few exhibits. We are glad we bought the membership so we can go back and do more things. There so many things for them to learn and explore."

Denise Emmons

"The exhibits are fun/engaging for a variety of ages. We especially love the miniature train and under5 room! There are tables to sit and eat at so bring a sack lunch or snack! This place is well worth the cost of the membership."

Memberships

  • When does my membership become active?

    If you are joining for the first time, your membership is active immediately after purchase for you to enjoy! If you are renewing and your current membership hasn’t expired, 12 months will be added to the end of your current membership. If your membership lapsed and you renew, your membership will be active immediately for us. If you are purchasing this as a “gift,” you can select the start date.

  • How do I buy a gift membership?

    To give a membership, use the “GIFT” button. In the online portal, you’ll fill out information for you and your recipient and choose a start date for the membership. All new members receive a welcome email and letter with their membership details immediately following the membership purchase. If you want the gift membership to be a surprise, select the Deliver Membership to Buyer option on the Gift Message page to have these sent to you instead of the gift recipient.

  • Will you send me something with my gift membership that I can wrap up and give?

    Yes! We will send you a welcome letter that you can give to the recipient. Place your order by December 12 to receive it by Christmas. Please remember that postal service takes longer during busy seasons. Once we hand over packages to the post office, we have no control over delivery times.
