The Great Hall

Step into the ancient world and create a creature from the past with our Augmented Reality (AR) experience—no tickets required. Step into the ancient world and create a creature from the past! Select from modern-day sites, find a fossil, then start digging. Learn myth-busting facts about T. rex, Velociraptor, and even a Kansas Pteranodon. Once your creature is complete, give it a name and watch it come ALIVE in the Great Hall.

Paleo Kansas City

Paleo Kansas City invites you to go back three hundred million years ago to see the fascinating fossil remains when Kansas City’s home was on the paleo equator. This engaging exhibit brings to life the oceans, rain forests, palm trees, giant ferns, mastodons, mammoths, and grizzly-sized sloths that populated the area millions of summers ago. EZ Overland Park Junk Removal

Discovery Room

Here is where the kids get to enter a world of authentic hands-on science and interactive discovery. Explore major fields of scientific research, from anthropology to zoology. Excited and engaged, they will find an array of artifacts and specimens, live animals, puzzles, and scientific challenges to explore.

Wetlands Preserve

The Wetlands Park at Prairiefire is one of the most important features in our Prairiefire community. Wetlands are low-lying areas of land that are saturated with moisture, and a natural habitat for wildlife including herons, tortoises, butterflies, birds, and more. Marshes, swamps, and bogs are examples of wetlands. The Wetlands at Prairiefire is naturally there and is a preserved park.
