  • Pretty good place for kids and the price. As previous reviews had mentioned, some things were broken but it looks like they are updating. Nice learning experience for the kids. 
  • We had children ages 15 to 2 years, there was so much to see and do. We came from out of state to visit family. It was great to see what beauty Kansas has to offer visitors. 
  • Discover your inner child and have a great adventure as you learn about the world around you. Great place for young children and also for some of us not young "kids at heart". My wife enjoy going here...  read more »
  • 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.
  • Great place for STEM. Your kids will learn and interact with fun things that teach them.
  • Great place to take kids to teach them about science in a fun and interactive way.
  • I visited here with my 3 year old. I loved this place, it was just as much fun for me as it was for him. It's all about learning but in a fun way. They added the Kansas Kids Connect which is an area just for toddlers and babies. Everything is very hands on. We could spend all day in the Kids Connect. I just wish it was a larger space.

  • We used the Exploration Place for the venue for the wedding of our youngest son and his new wife. With both of them living out of state I was in charge of making sure everything was in place. Would not recommend using this place for any event. The crew was not very helpful and even when told they would staff the walkway so people using it to walk/ride along river were advised to go around due to an event taking place, my sons and husband did the patrolling. Finally my husband had to go find the event coordinator to get staff out there. Just seems very unorganized and not very friendly. Also, some things that were told to us that would be available was not on day of event. For the money it cost not worth the headache. Also daughter in law requested to pay full bill upfront and they only ran payment for half leaving a balance to be owed once she got here which blew her wedding budget. Very dissatisfied.
