Thank you for the thorough list of our upcoming exhibits, Visit Wichita! We're looking forward to checking out the exhibits listed at the other museums and attractions as well. What a great list!

Eclipse information from NASA - National Aeronautics and Space Administration. Save this post for tomorrow!

Experience the "ring of fire" solar eclipse with us on Saturday, Oct. 14!

Livestream: https://fb.me/e/8oN0ufeG6
Interactive Map: https://go.nasa.gov/EclipseExplorer
Info Hub: https://go.nasa.gov/eclipse

Our "ring of fire" show starts at 11:30 a.m. EDT (1530 UTC)—we'll watch the annular eclipse on live cameras from Oregon to Texas, with updates from NASA scientists, astronauts, and a few special guests. We'll also be taking your questions on social media!

Most skywatchers in North, Central, and South America will be able to see at least a partial solar eclipse; the eclipse will not be visible outside these areas. All eclipse-watchers will need to use specialized solar filters or an indirect viewing method (like a pinhole projector) to safely watch the eclipse.

Here’s a great way to give back to our gracious host.

Exploration Place allows us to use their grounds and has even opened early on Saturdays to provide restroom access and complimentary coffee!
Day 24: Camp Woodchuck celebrated all summer long. Campers enjoyed field trips to Sedgwick County Zoo, Exploration Place, Botanica, The Wichita Gardens, and our Keeper on Parade.
Trevor Stewart has long been a staple of the Nightcrossings library and now you can hear it in the Digital Dome Theater at Exploration Place! Stewart's tranquil tones accompany the film "Kansas: An Immersive Dome Experience" playing now. To celebrate we're featuring his music both tonight and tomorrow right here on Nightcrossings!
We're so excited to announce our next event appearance!

You'll be able to catch these witchy sisters on October 27th-29th before every showing running amok amok amok at Exploration Place 's Hocus Pocus Dome Experience!

Be sure to catch them for photos, meet and greets, autographs and more! They're sure to put a spell on you, and they promise to not take your children. Probably. 🎃
Looking for a fun family outing? Check out the new train exhibit at Exploration Place!

Remember Jordan who had an internship at Exploration Place? All of his hard work and decision-making learned through Greater Expectations has paid off. Jordan is now an employee there!

Do you know someone who could benefit from our program like Jordan? Please reach out to us by calling (316) 942-6300 or contacting us online if you know an individual in need of our program. We'd love to create another success story like this. Congratulations, Jordan!!! 👏 👏greaterexpectationsks.org/contact/

Tallgrass Film Festival kicks off Wednesday at Exploration Place, followed by four full days of independent film from around the world screening at multiple locations throughout Downtown Wichita, including Wichita Orpheum Theatre.

Tallpasses and tickets to individual films are on sale now and the Tallgrass box office is officially open at The LUX.
The world’s most beloved #1 blue engine rolled into Exploration Place yesterday. The Thomas & Friends: Explore the Rails exhibit is included with museum admission and runs through January 8. The exhibit, inspired by the popular children’s series, seeks to engage children ages 2 through 7 and their families in foundational skills that foster STEM literacy through playful learning experiences. Children will help Thomas and his friends solve a variety of challenges, from a simple sorting and shape identification to more complex engineering obstacles, such as completing a train track using track pieces with different levels of elevation. As children confront new challenges and test their abilities, the smiling faces of Thomas, Percy, Victor and others are there to offer encouragement and remind children how “really useful” they all are.
