Wonderscope Children’s Museum of Kansas City’s mission is to spark a lifelong love of learning through the power of play. We provide fun, dynamic exhibits and programs that integrate STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) learning for children eight years of age and younger, their parents, caregivers and teachers.


Learn*Play*Grow communicates our belief that children learn best through play and that fun, imaginative hands-on learning, can help them grow to their fullest potential. Interactive learning experiences with family and friends engage children’s natural motivation to learn and discover their world.
