Exploration Place Memberships Black Friday SpecialThis article is sponsored by Exploration Place.

Discover where science meets imagination right here in Wichita, and become an Exploration Place member. 

Unlimited annual visits

There’s always something new, with three traveling exhibits showing annually. And your kids will love returning again and again to their favorites. Kansas Kids Connect is where you can ignite the STEM spark with our youngest visitor. New memories are made daily at Where Kids Rule, a three-story medieval castle. And you can soar into our award-winning Design Build Fly exhibit to learn how planes are created in Wichita aircraft plants.

Explore the human body in Health Inside Out, a wonderfully weird new permanent exhibit that is a hub of discovery, fascination and respect for the human body – inside and out.

Visit science centers across the country at no charge

Exploration Place is a member of the Association of Science and Technology Centers Passport Program. That means your EP membership card serves as your free pass to standout science museums across the country, such as the Perot Museum of Science and Nature in Dallas, the Field Museum in Chicago, the Denver Museum of Science and Nature and more than 300 other destinations.

Member exclusives

Throughout the year, you’ll be invited to numerous members-only events and activities, including an exclusive member preview of every new exhibit and dome film.  Members also receive priority booking on popular programs that are in high demand and likely to sell out.

Discounts galore

It pays to be a member! Throughout the year, Exploration Place runs regular member specials with discounts on special events and programs as well as early access to ticket sales for their most popular events.

Make a difference in our community

Perhaps most important of all, as an Exploration Place member, you’re supporting STEM education throughout the whole community. With the support of our members, in 2021-22 we were able to do things such as provide free field trips to 3,836 students from 39 different Title 1 schools in USD 259, provide 200 free needs-based scholarships to summer camp, taught science to 1,675 students in the USD 259 Newcomers program (for whom English is a second language) and provide free passes to be checked out from nine local libraries.

At just $85 annually for the entire family, a membership at Exploration Place offers unbeatable value. You get quality time together in real life for less than the cost of most streaming services.
