Summer Destination: the KU Natural History Museum
Step out of the summer heat and into the cool halls of the KU Natural History Museum this summer. There are new exhibits to see including the biodiversity exhibit with hundreds of specimens. Fossilogics, the museum store, has dozens of new items including museum T-shirts, mugs and pint glasses, and science gifts and books for all ages. While you're here, explore the museum with one of our 12 scavenger hunts or discovery guides. Parking is available one block north, at the Mississippi Street parking garage, next to the Kansas Union.
