  • The exterior architecture of this museum is a must see. Gorgeous technicolor that shines bright even on a cloudy day. Our grand-babies love to visit to enjoy special exhibits (they just had one on din...  more »

  • Stopped because of the building. Made with NASA glass and nothing else like it. The exhibit was about natural history and interesting. I think kids would like it, Interesting museum shop. Worth a stop  more »

  • My rating is only of the "free" part of the museum. The outside of the building is beautiful. I am able to bring my 4-year-old for 30 minutes to an hour, and keep her entertained with the free options. The "interactive build-a-dinosaur" experience is especially fun for kids of various ages. There is an impressive T-Rex fossil replica, and a couple other nice fossils on display. I have never been to the "paid" section of the museum, because $14 seems too pricey to spend on myself, and I am not sure how much my 4-year-old would get out of her $8 ticket.
  • Very awesome museum and the t-rex display is fantastic! The building itself is pretty much a work of art as well and an excellent addition to Overland Park and The Prairie Fire center. I am excited to see what new things they ad and exhibitions they bring in.
  • Great experience. I wanted more for my dollars. Good edutainment.
  • This is a really cool museum, even though the free area is pretty limited. It's awesome that they have something like this in the middle of a shopping area. We only saw the free portions, and they were worth the trip.
  • Admission basically to see a cool building, not many exhibits. KUs Natural history museum is a real museum, not a tourist trap for money. Gas is much cheaper to spend driving 30 minutes to KU, than paying exorbitant prices for nada. Better for kids and adults. Just skip Prairie Fire altogether, boring. Gave it 1 star because a star rating rating is required. Actual rating: negative one star.,
