Through a unique collaboration with the American Museum of Natural History and other cultural and educational institutions in the Kansas City area, the Museum at Prairiefire invites you to understand and celebrate natural history and culture in our region and around the world. Our mission is to engage our visitors and area students with world-class exhibitions, important programming and significant educational opportunities. The MAP features information in the areas of natural science and history in three primary locations:
Each location offers visitors a unique experience and opportunity to broaden their understandings of the natural world. In the Great Hall, discover everything from who found the very first Tyrannosaurus rex to how scientists use technology and scientific method to better understand the history of life on Earth. Children and their caretakers are invited on a completely hands-on journey through six areas of science, from Paleontology to Astronomy, in the Discovery Room.
