We recently took a trip to this museum and thoroughly enjoyed it. We all enjoyed walking through the museum which is a progression through time in the "Race to Space" journey. It was very well done and my kids were able to connect some "dots" in history.

The shows were fantastic, especially Dr. Goddard's Lab. It was very interactive and the kids LOVED it.

Our ONLY disappointment was that there was no actual planetarium show. Instead they were showing the Hubble telescope photos in the planetarium which got somewhat repetitive and was over my kids comprehension. (My father was with us and actually dozed off!) We would have much rather seen the planetarium shows of the past.

Definately worth a visit!

If you happen to be in the area or not far away, this is a great little museum. It has a good sampling of many different eras. Just enough to actually still be educational, but not too much to glaze over the kiddos!
It has a natural history section with actual dinosaur fossils. Early American section. A hall of presidents. An egyptian exhibit complete with authentic mummies, greek/roman section and quite a bit on our countries wars.
My kids enjoyed it very much and I learned a lot I didn't know about the World Wars!
Take a trip. Wichita also has some other great educational places to go, as well.
