“Meh...”
Review of Exploration Place

Exploration Place
Ranked #6 of 76 things to do in Wichita
Certificate of Excellence

Attraction details
Owner description: Delve into hundreds of interactive exhibits that stimulate the mind and teach about science, and that's only inside the main building. Outside there's a park where visitors can observe Kansas wildlife in a wetlands habitat and dig for archeological treasures inside a giant sandbox.

“Meh...”
Reviewed 19 February 2012

Every time I go there 1 or more of the exhibits are closed down. They also never show any good movies when it's not around a holiday.

“Needs more for everyone”
Reviewed 2 February 2012

I like Exploration Place, but there seems to be too much open space. And not enough interactions/activities for children of all ages. What they have is nice, they just need more and less open space.
