  • Our family loves going to Exploration Place! Our kiddos are two and four and there is plenty for them to do! The "castle" area is huge and often has older kids playing in it. It's adult- sized, though, so I'm able to follow the kids around into the exhibit. It's got three levels to the castle area, so there is plenty of room to run and play. My kids like the Kansas Kids area the best. It's designed for children five and under, which keeps them from being run over by older kids. They have a market, hen house, air tunnels, climbing tree house area, even an infant circle. As a parent one of the things I love is that is enclosed with only one entrance. I can position myself there to ensure my kids can't escape and let them run and play. Other areas of Exploration Place will be gra when my kids get older and have more of an attention span. I like the airplane room and how it pertains to Wichita. The water exhibits, though small, are big hits with our kids. Finally, the miniature Kansas room is great, I especially love how is decorated for the holidays right now. A highly educational environment! Well worth the money of a membership if you live in Wichita! (Although a little pricey for a single day.)
  • Went there for my 20 year high school reunion this year. It was an excellent facility for gathering. Had a fun time catching up with old friends and jamming to the 90's music.
  • Very fun. Makes me miss being a kid. They have a lot of social interaction props. You can dig for fossils. Be inside a tornado. And fly airplanes. I won't spoil everything but definitely a must go for anyone visiting Wichita. I do however wish they had better dome showings. Some are very awesome but most lack.
  • Membership is a worthwhile investment. They have an adequate amount of diversity in their displays. A fun place to go on a rainy or cold day.
  • Way fun back in the days more things to mess with now they got it all babyish and less stuff it seems
