  • More extensive than Dinsmoor's "Garden of Eden" (Lucas, Kansas), the Natural History Museum is my favorite destination for history and entertainment. You can spend a few minutes to an hour there depending on your mood. Snakes, bees, and mechanical prairie dogs await!
  • I enjoyed going here as a kid and a student at KU and I enjoyed taking my kids to it.
  • Love the panorama and fossil collection. Also check out Bug Town for some live insects ­čś▓
  • A hidden gem, in plain sight! A lot of really cool artifacts inside.
  • The dino exhibit is small but just amazing! Incredible mosasaurs, from Kansas!! It was a shallow ocean here at one time. Amazing display of past mass extinctions, I had no idea.
