Museum at Prairiefire is located in the new retail development of the same name in Overland Park, Kansas. Despite the attractive building, this museum has not lived up to its hype.

Visiting the Great Hall is free, but there isn't very much to see or do in the Great Hall. There are fees to visit the children's discovery room or to view rotating temporary exhibits from the American Museum of Natural History. There are long periods between those exhibits.

The most popular free exhibit appears to be the Alive Experience, where you can design and name a dinosaur then step out into the Great Hall and look up at the screen showing you and your dinosaur in real time. Touring the free portions of the museum may take the average person 20 minutes or less.

Tickets for the temporary exhibits are $14 for ages 13 and older, $8 for ages 3-12. The Discovery Room with activities once an hour for ages 3-12 is $8 for ages 13 and older, $7 for ages 3-12. These are pricey.
