Yesterday, we went to Crown Center in Kansas City to check out the Rainforest Adventure Exhibit.  It is located on Level 1 in the Crown Center Showplace.  At first glance, it looks small when you walk in (if you went to the Clifford the Dog Exhibit, you know what I’m talking about) but, all the interactive play areas have a lot to offer.

Activities and features include two computer games, a 9-foot kapok tree, a gorilla blind, giant microscope for studying plants an searching for endangered species and more.  There are over 40 active components that the kids can role-play as research assistants. There are safari vests, magnifying glasses, binoculars and other expedition props the kids can use during their mini adventure with sound effects from the rain forest.

The Exhibit is Free and they will validate your parking ticket. The show opened on May 28th and goes through September 5th.  On August 20 there will be a Bird Show and Noon & 2 PM.

Rainforest Adventure was created by Stepping Stones Museum for Children and is a traveling exhibit.  Its next stop is St. Paul Minnesota’s Children’s Museum.
