Kids, like Ponce De Leon, need constant supervision while exploring, or they’ll simply vanish into a jungle in search of eternal youth. Guide your child through an educational wilderness with today's Groupon for the Wonderscope Children's Museum of Kansas City. As an interactive museum, Wonderscope is designed to pique the intellect, curiosity, and creativity of children ages 2 to 10 with fun-filled scientific and artistic activities. With admission ($7 for ages 3–63, $6 for ages 64+, and $4 for ages 1–2), sprouts and sprout tenders get full access to a bevy of hands-on exhibits, such as the aqueous H2Oh! zone, the gravity-defying Raceways exhibit, and the 1,200-square-foot LEGO Ocean Adventure center. Toddlers under two can get their wiggles out at the Small Wonders area. All four tickets must be used in one visit and cannot be used on December 31.
KC Parent magazine featured the Wonderscope Children's Museum. Although reviews are still growing, more than 830 Facebookers are fans of the museum, and five Insider Pagers give it an average of four stars.
- For less than the cost of a movie my kids and I were able to travel through both space and time. We learned more than we expected to and had more fun that we could measure. – Caroline Horton, KCParent
- From the resident pet hamsters to the favorite shadow room and face painting, my kids were entertained and fully engaged. I like the fact that the exhibit areas were self guided and non-prescriptive. – Ann Z., Insider Pages
Wonderscope Children's Museum of Kansas City
Wonderscope’s interactive exhibits aim to instill a lifelong fascination with learning in kids aged 10 and younger through hands-on play that mixes education with fun. Elements of art, science, and literature are on display throughout as kids explore themed environments such as TinkerSpace, an otherworldly sanctuary for building structures and contraptions. Raceways explores elements of physics, such as motion and combing your hair like Einstein, whereas H2Oh! moisturizes young minds with interactive lessons on the properties of water. At Wonderscope's newest exhibit, _Ready Vet Go!, children can step into the roles of veterinarian, trainer, and pet owner as they learn the importance of animal ownership and care. Over at the Baby Nursery, kids can assume the role of doctor and learn how to take care of a newborn child.
