  • Excellent natural history museum - a "find" for families with young children due to all the interactive exhibits that can fascinate young and old alike. The museum emphasizes the Tallgrass Prairie...  more »
  • Nicely done. Just enough info on each subject. The film offerings were also well done. This would be a great visit for families and all ages.  more »
  • This was a fantastic experience for the entire family. The scavenger hunt for my 4 year old helped to keep her focused and interested on the main level exhibit. We watched the Flint Hills film. It was educational and we enjoyed the 4D effects. Upstairs, there are many play areas for little ones to enjoy. The limitless options for hands-on fun for the kids is well worth the visit. All of the staff was friendly and willing to answer any questions we had. My only complaint was the single-ply toilet paper in the restrooms. We did appreciate the foot stools for the kids though.
  • Great place to enjoy the flinthills past and future. Also great for adults and kids to enjoy together. Dont let 9 dollars full you its worth the price .
