  • We saw the building, gleaming in bright, colorful panels of glass and metal, and just had to explore further. Once inside, the modern space offered an incredible exhibit: Amazing Species. I will be re...  read more »

  • The kids like the kids room, but you have to pay extra for that, and it is small and over crowded... 
  • 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.,
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Beautiful building with so much promise. Ticket prices are high and there is not much to do. Limited activities mainly aimed at younger children.
