The newest museum in Kansas, the Flint Hills Discovery Center, opened on April 14, 2012 in Manhattan, Kansas. The Flint Hills Discovery Center is designed to excite and inspire people of all ages to celebrate, explore, and care for the Flint Hills we are so fortunate to have right here in the heart of Kansas. The distinctive new building is located on third (3rd) street, just off of the KS177 highway bridge over the Kansas River on the east side of Manhattan as you come in to the downtown area. Plenty of street parking is available. This very unique educational center was designed specifically to explore, in depth, the ecology and cultural history of the Flint Hills region of Kansas.
