Mission Statement

Through a unique collaboration with the American Museum of Natural History, as well as with other cultural and educational institutions in the Kansas City area, the Museum at Prairiefire will create a place to understand and celebrate natural history and culture in our region and around the world. The Museum will engage visitors and area students with world-class exhibitions, important programming and significant educational opportunities.

Description

The Museum at Prairiefire (MAP) was established in 2010 based on a pioneering content partnership with the American Museum of Natural History (AMNH). Focused on enhancing public understanding of natural history and science, we are a "startup" museum and will present an ongoing flow of world-class traveling exhibitions organized by the American Museum of Natural History. The museum also has a Discovery Room, which is an exciting gateway to science and natural history for children ages three and older, engaging permanent halls and experiences, education programs, science video and more. The Museum is the cultural anchor of Prairiefire, a 58-acre mixed-use project that integrates residential, office, retail and entertainment.
