Flint Hills Discovery Center
20120405_CVB_133- Flint Hills Discovery Center (4).jpgThe Flint Hills Discovery Center is a dynamic tribute to the 10,000 square miles of tallgrass prairie and geographic Flint Hills that envelop Manhattan. Each exhibit area within the Discovery Center has an interactive component to enrich the learning experience for both children and adults.

Your visit starts in the Immersive Experience Theater and the multimedia "Tallgrass Prairie: Tides of Time," descriptively enhanced through sights, sounds and innovative effects. The massive 60-foot, 120-degree concave screen in the Immersive Experience Theater brings the prairie experience to life in full-color brilliance, all within a three-story complex that contains more than 7,000 square feet of exhibit space.

The striking beauty of the Flint Hills has a rich history waiting to be discovered. Take in a panoramic view of Downtown Manhattan and the majestic Kansas River and K-S Hill from the outdoor patio. 

Blue Earth Plaza
Adjacent to the Flint Hills Discovery Center, this beautiful space is perfect for a family picnic, enjoy the outdoor fireplace and watch fountains accompanied by music and lights. This space may be rented for private events.
