“Struggles with cleanliness and adequate staff”
Review of Exploration Place

Exploration Place
Ranked #6 of 78 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.

We will continue to go to and support this museum...they are improving with their exhibit quality and traveling exhibit quality. However they continue to lack in the areas of cleanliness, adequate staff and friendly staff. It would seem that skeleton crew is in general "unhappy" with their job and it shows. Would be great to see energetic people with a passion for the interesting things to see and do and Exploration Place. And...keep a close eye on your children in the "castle" area. Many places for safety issues/concerns...and never any Exploration Place staffers on hand to monitor.

This place is a marvel. They've done well here. I've been going here since I was little. I hadn't been here for years and I finally came back. Definitely still a great place!

We go here at least 4 to 5 times a year. We enjoy the traveling exhibits like :Titanic, CSI, etc. My kids ages range from newborn to 16 years and there truly is something for everyone. For us, the membership makes the most sense. There is an IMAX that is pretty good too.
