Museum at Prairiefire, in Overland Park, Kansas, is a place that provides access for all to understand and celebrate natural history and science in our region and around the world.
Through a unique collaboration with the American Museum of Natural History, as well as with other cultural and educational institutions in the nation, the Museum at Prairiefire is a place that provides access for all to understand and celebrate natural history and science in our region and around the world. The Museum engages visitors and students with world-class exhibitions, important programming, and significant educational and STEM opportunities.
As the only building in the United States to feature Dichroic Glass developed by NASA, the Museum at Prairiefire’s exterior is as unique as what it holds inside. We encourage you to walk around the building and study the limestone, mostly quarried from Kansas, and see what fossil stories you can find. Watch for changing colors in the glass at different times of the day; fiery reds, purples and oranges in the daylight, and a sea of blue hues by night.
Exhibits include: a paleontology gallery, an augmented reality creation experience, and the Michael L. Kahn Science Theater, focusing on current science and history
The American Museum of Natural History, located in New York City and founded in 1869, is one of the world’s preeminent scientific, educational, and cultural institutions.
