  • My ten-year-old grandson and I visited today, and while we enjoyed it, I have mixed feelings. I think this place is excellent for field trips, but maybe a little less so for a ten-year-old on summer v...  more »

  • We visited with 3 adults and 3 kids on a Monday. School kids on field trips were everywhere. The dome shows and the new exhibits were closed. Some of the exhibits were out of order, and the cool stuff was crowded. There was one small snack bar and the prices were high. It was clean though, even the bathrooms. The place was a hit for the elementary crowd. Prices were average for what you get. They offered a military discount.
  • Birthday parties offered at Exploration Place are one of the better birthday party offerings available in the Wichita area. Definitely the best bang for your buck with what all you get. It's not just a simple little party, but rather an all day long birthday event that includes everything you could possibly ask for already as part of the package. The exhibits are always fun and ever changing, so it's not the same thing every time you visit.
  • Maybe fun for older kids but, it was a waste of money to me. Older kids were just running wild and almost knocked or hit into my 2 year old many times. The place didn't have much to see or do. Mostly puppet show areas, slides and puzzles. They did have a dedicated spot with a slide and some blocks and stuff, for children 5 and under to play in but, kids kept coming in that were older than 5 so we had the same issue in there. My daughter did enjoy the slide but, I felt we could've had more fun at a park, for free. For $12.50 a ticket it just wasn't that great for us.
  • We love it at Exploration Place! The yearly membership is totally worth the price. There is a movie theater, mini golf, and rotating exhibits. The permanent exhibit includes flight, building, and a prairie exhibit. My kids (9-11) love it.
  • Great fun for everyone! Educational and exciting... but don't plan on eating there, as only snacks and drinks are offered and are expensive.
