The Flint Hills Discovery Center is a dynamic tribute to the last major stand of unbroken tallgrass prairie. This 35,000 sq. ft. must-see attraction includes interactive exhibits highlighting the science, history and culture of the eco-region from pre-history to present day - it's the perfect starting point for your exploration of the magnificent Flint Hills of Kansas.
Guests can explore exhibits, entertain their senses in the Immersive Experience Theatre, shop for high-quality notions in the Gift Store, or take in a panoramic view of downtown Manhattan from the third-floor terrace.
The Flint Hills Discovery Center is a division of the Manhattan Parks and Recreation Department of the City of Manhattan. The Discovery Center opened to the public on April 4, 2012 and has since welcomed more than 100,000 visitors.
