  • A great outing for your children to learn and play. Downstairs is mostly for children who can read & there's a small theater for a 15 min showing, but upstairs there's a huge play area, engaging/ educational displays, and interactive things to do that will keep kids busy for a while.
  • My boys enjoyed the dinosaur exhibit. The exhibit was a bit small, but very neat and interactive. The children's area has several activities they enjoyed.
  • The video on the first floor was excellent, it gave a great background on the history of the surrounding area. They had two traveling exhibits upstairs that were lacking in interest and felt like they were missing something. It is worth going to just to see the video and the first floor permanent exhibit.
  • Went on a field trip with my son's class (3-5 yr old). Great for a mixed group of ages, enough entertainment for younger children and education for older children. Kept them entertained for 2+ hours, nice place!
  • Nice flint hills and Manhattan museum. Quick intro for new people and visitors in the area
