Exploring our World at Exploration Place

Exploration Place Photo, Wichita, Kansas

Ever see a cyclone inside a building, or dig for fossils in a museum? These are two of the activities available in this area. You can see grasslands, giant cockroaches, snakes, how streams flow, and a dozen other things.

There is actually a huge chunk of shale in the center of the room constructed into a pit where kids and adults alike can try their hand at fossil hunting. This is something everyone should try.

Take a few minutes to get off your feet and sit in front of a live weather studio. Tiered benches are available here to facilitate explorers.
