Exploration Place on the bank of the Arkansas River in Wichita, Kansas
Exploration Place in Wichita, Kansas is a hands on science museum. Most of this river front museum is devoted to traveling exhibits. On the day we toured Exploration Place, those temporary exhibits includes Discovering Chimpanzees, Our Body, and The Scoop on Poop. But I more enjoyed the permanent displays such as Exploring Flight & Design, and Exploring Our Only Home.
A large portion of the permanent exhibits is devoted to the Kids' Explore area with a three story castle and the "Tots' Spot" play area for toddlers.
Exploration Place used to have two fairly interesting dining options, but WaterWay Café and Egert Dining Room are no longer open. They do have a Snack Bar across Kansas in Miniature that offers light snacks and drinks for sale.
