Kids, like Ponce de León, need constant supervision while exploring, or they’ll simply vanish into a jungle in search of eternal youth. Guide a children's expedition through an educational wilderness with today's Groupon: for $175, you get a two-hour museum rental at Wonderscope Children's Museum of Kansas City in Shawnee (a $375 value).
Named Best Children's Museum of Kansas City by Nickelodeon's Parents Connect, Wonderscope Children's Museum of Kansas City piques the intellect, curiosity, and creativity of children ages 2 to 10 with fun-filled scientific and artistic activities. During the after-hours rental, 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 2 can get their wiggles out in the Small Wonders area, the ideal spot for playing, crawling, and respectfully debating which type of wood they prefer for their cribs.
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.
