Description:

Exploration Place, located in Wichita, Kansas, is a magical wedding destination. The lovely architecture of the museum becomes a handsome backdrop to each stage of your wedding celebration. Imagine exchanging vows outside with your love on the Waterway Terrace. You and your guests will take in the views of the Arkansas River and the Keeper of the Plains as you enjoy appetizers and cocktails after a tranquil ceremony. Exploration Place has both indoor and outdoor facilities, outside the Festival Plaza, and Picnic Grove can both accommodate outdoor receptions with grace. Keep it casual as you dine and dance in the sun. For a more traditional reception, The Grand Hall and WaterWay Hall are both stunning indoor spaces. The WaterWay Hall provides your special evening with an enchanted environment while the Grand Hall offers views of the Reflecting Pond. Exploration Place is an exciting wedding destination with exhibits to explore, a Dome Theater, and Planetarium guests will be thrilled throughout the day.
