If you have a dinosaur loving kid this is the place for you! The dinosaurs are huge, move and make sounds. There are over 40 or so dinosaurs on the trail. They are not cheap looking they are pretty realistic. There is also a T-Rex show that I would highly recommend. There is also a raptor maze, inflatable dino bouncy house, huge dinosaur dig site, dino talks, and other shows. There is also a dino mini golf that is included in the park price. Make sure you get a schedule when you get there. If you are a veteran they give a military discount on tickets. They do not have a restaurant but there is a snack shack by the play area.
They had cool exhibits on the 1st floor. Awesome mummies and dinos. Things are a bit run down and there were lots of air scrubbers on full blast everywhere. Some exhibits like the bear was falling apart. It is in a nice area and there are some interesting exhibits but mostly a lot of copys and replicas. The gift shop is awesome! There is also a play area on the top floor. There is an elevator to get to all the levels. It is a bit of a maze.
Awesome pool and hot tub. Very clean. Located in a great area and about 15 minutes from Wichita!
The staff was so friendly and informative. The house and barn are a must see! Make sure you see all of the levels. Lots of stairs but so worth it! From the website it looks like you could drive through the park to see the Buffalo but only the Buffalo tours can drive that route. So if you want to see Buffalo you need to jump on a tour. Also, you can drive to the old schoolhouse instead of hiking just go further down the road past the visitor center entrance. That is actually where we saw the Buffalo was at the gate by the school house. We walked the Southwind trail from the visitor center to the school house. It was a nice trail that goes over a creek and was not long. It took us about an hour with a toddler to walk to the schoolhouse and back.
It is a pain to get off the highway to get to it due to tolls but it is only about 10 min from the highway. The totems are interesting it would have definitely been better to go during the summer when the gift shop was open but otherwise it was a nice place to get out of the car for a bit. There is a porta potty for a restroom.
This museum was so informative and interactive. Our 2 year old was able to touch everything! I was impressed by all of the exhibits and it really helps you understand what it was like on the Lewis and Clark Exhibition. The trails outside were nice but the one that goes to the river is not completely stroller friendly. We will defiantly be returning.
Good place to get out and let everyone get some exercise. They trails are nicely kept and the information on the fort is interesting. The restrooms were in very nice condition as well.
We had a fun time getting out and stretching our legs at this little stop. The lady was very informative and she was able to answer all of our questions. There is also a park for kids to run around and restroom.
It was such a great museum that entertains adults as well as children. They keep everything clean and updated. The interactive exhibits were definitely nice especially for our 2 year old. The amount of artifacts they have is also impressive. I would recommend spending at least 3-4 hours here. The have traveling exhibits as well but those are extra.
We watched the sunrise there and it was defiantly worth the stop. Make sure you get there early so you can park up in the top parking lot so you won't have to climb up a whole bunch of steps.
