The Kansas Flint Hills protect the last remnants of unbroken tallgrass prairie. Once, the tallgrass prairie dominated the heart of North America, but now only 3 percent remains, most of it in the Flint Hills. The Flint Hills Discovery Center is an interactive, science, history and cultural museum. In-depth exhibits explore all layers of the prairie and the immersive experience will keep your senses entertained with simulated fire and ice. Enjoy Blue Earth Plaza, right out the doors of the Discovery Center, complete with an outdoor fire pit and fountains. Adults: $9.00 Military, Students & Seniors (65+): $7.00 Children: $4.00 (2 and under are free) Mon - Wed: 10:00 am - 5:00 pm Thu: 10:00 am - 8:00 pm Fri - Sat: 10:00 am - 5:00 pm Sun: 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm
