A new traveling exhibit will visit Exploration Place in Wichita this month.
For those who like to hit the road to find something unique and interesting, this exhibit will provide that and much more.
“Discover the Ice Age” is a nationally traveling exhibit that will be at Exploration Place starting Feb. 4 and remain until April 30, so there will be plenty of opportunities to visit for those who wish to see it. This exhibit features life-sized animations and fossils that can be touched.
Through Imagine Exhibits Inc., visitors will be able to experience the environmental conditions of the Earth’s Ice Age.
This interactive display was created with the input of Gregory Erickson, a world-renowned paleontologist.
Erickson is the curator for the Florida State University Museum and holds research appointments with the American Museum of Natural History in New York, the Field Museum in Chicago, and the University of Alaska’s Museum of the North in Fairbanks.
Much of the exhibit is open to general admittance ticket holders. Most general admittance tickets are less than $10 apiece.
Exploration Place is open to the public from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays and from noon to 5 p.m. Sundays.
For more information, call (316) 660-0600. Exploration Place is located at 300 N. McLean Blvd.
