Through a unique collaboration with the American Museum ofNatural 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 area of natural science and history in three primary locations: The Great Hall, The Discovery Room and American Museum of Natural History Exhibition Gallery. Each location offers visitors a unique experience and opportunity to broaden their understanding of the natural world. In the Great Hall, discover everything from who found the very first Tyrannosaurus rex to how scientist use technology and scientific methods to better understand our surrounding. 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.
