Do the Exhibits!

Exploration Place is Kansas’ premier hands-on science center for all ages, located on a 20-acre site along the Arkansas River in Wichita’s downtown Museums on the River district. Eight hands-on exhibit areas focus on aviation, Kansas, medieval life in a three-story castle, construction, health, imaginative spaces for toddlers, evolution of the center’s site and construction, and a special traveling exhibition area. In Kansas’ largest domed theater, the Digital Dome Theater and Planetarium, travel to faraway destinations and embark on unforgettable adventures during these state-of-the-art, digitally-produced films. Lunch space is available inside or out at the picnic grove where students can enjoy the adventure play yard. Teachers receive a 10% discount in the Explore Store and students can purchase an educational memento. www.exploration.org. Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram.

Exhibit field trips now include a Live Science Show.
