Birthday Celebration!

On June 1, 2011 the Kansas Children’s Discovery Center opened its doors to the public. Six years later, we have welcomed more than 457,000 visitors from every state and more than 23 countries!

The Kansas Children’s Discovery Center will be offering special programming all day long on June 1st to celebrate its birthday. At 11:00 am, visitors will fish for prizes. At noon, make butterflies in our new butterfly arbor! Children will paint on ice at 1:00 pm and at 3:00 pm, visitors will be catapulting cupcakes outside (weather permitting)!

We invite you to help celebrate our 6th birthday at the Kansas Children’s Discovery Center!


We are celebrating our 6th birthday with 6 gifts on June 1st for our visitors!

3. Need a break? Try out our Butterfly Benches, sponsored by Schendel Pest Control, that have been installed in our butterfly garden. They also make a wonderful photo opportunity!

4. Spin like a top in our new SPUN Chair, out on the exhibit floor for ALL to enjoy!
