87 families have already visited the Museum at Prairiefire in Overland Park, Kansas. Are you one of them? Thanks to a donation from and partnership with the Museum at Prairiefire, Cass County Public Library patrons can check out museum passes for free! Checking out a museum pass gives a family of 4 admission for 3 days, perfect for a weekend. The pass will give you access to a majority of exhibits. Some special exhibits may cost an additional fee.

One of the amazing attractions at the museum is the Discovery Room. The Discovery Room is a hands-on experience for children ages 3-12. There are 6 sections that kids and families can explore for an unlimited amount of time. If the museum is open, the Discovery Room is open for fun and learning. Even if you’ve already visited, you may need to go back. The museum is always adding and changing features in the Discovery Room. For a preview, check out the map below:
