Kenya's Kids Exhibit Kansas Childrens Discovery Center runs from September 13 to January 4 2020

In this new cultural exhibit at Kansas Children's Discovery Center, families can discover what life is like for children in Kenya today, a country both technologically-advanced and filled with longtime traditions.

As they travel through five immersive environments, children can compare the similarities and differences between their lives and those of children in the East African country of Kenya. Check out to learn more!

Locally sponsored by the Redbud Foundation, Kenya’s Kids will be on display at The Kansas Children’s Discovery Center from September 13, 2019 to January 4, 2020. Kenya’s Kids was created by The Magic House, St. Louis Children’s Museum and is generously made possible by the Crawford Taylor Foundation and The Dana Brown Charitable Trust, U.S. Bank Trustee.
