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.
Have been here for a family outing, and also for a field trip. Staff are all amazing. Interactive exhibits keep kids entertained while teaching about the local history. Gift shop is nice and reasonably priced, restrooms are clean, and elevator is accessible if stairs are not suitable. Definitely recommend a visit here!
