Parking & Accessibility

Guest Parking

Free parking is available in the lot located to the Southeast of the Flint Hills Discovery Center entrance. There is also free and metered street parking surrounding the building. If these locations are full, guests are encouraged to utilize the nearby parking garage adjacent to the Hilton Garden Inn & Manhattan Conference Center. The garage offers free all-day parking to visitors. 


All exhibits and the Immersive Theater Experience are wheelchair accessible. The second and third floors can be accessed via the elevator located in the lobby. The third floor outdoor terrace can be accessed indoors using the elevator or outside using a ramp located on the outside of the facility. Wheelchairs are located in the Coat Room on the first floor and closed-caption devices are available for the Immersive Theater Experience. Visit Guest Services for assistance.

We have a Social Narrative available to help youth and adults prepare for their visit. It provides a first-person narrative of a typical visit to the Flint Hills Discovery Center with photo illustrations. Click HERE to download a PDF version.
