One of the most interactive museums in Kansas, the Exploration place has a number of exhibits that range from history, paleontology, human anatomy, aviation and science and innovation.

The exhibits include “Big Mouth” that gives you a better understanding of oral health, a “Bridging Art and science exhibit” where you can see the works of artists who have combined art with technology and science, a NANO exhibit that explains the use of nano technology in different sectors of our lives and a medieval castle and Tot’s spots where your children can play around. The creator space is apt for curious children who love hands-on experiments, building structures and making art. The KEVA section encourages visitors to build new designs and structures from small wooden planks of 4 inches – educating people on gravity, centre of mass, design strength and inventing new ways of combining art and design into a practical set up. The museum also has a miniature model of Kansa during the 1905’s that includes a number of iconic buildings with vintage styles houses and cars. The place also has a life size bubble machine, a café and a store where you can buy museum merchandise. The mini-golf is perfect for quick game before you leave the place.

The in –house Dome and Planetarium is the largest dome theatre in the state that has a 60-feet tall, 360-degree screen. The Kemper Creative Learning Studio has a seating capacity of 150 people and has live science shows that are a highlight of the place. The building itself is called “island building” since it appears as an island in the Arkansas river. When you visit the museum, take some time to see the architecture of the place as well.
