The Prairie Fire Museum in Overland Park, Ks is site to behold. It is a small natural history museum with the main attraction rotating out every few months or year at a time. It is located in part of Overland Park that is still developing in some parts but is developing nicely.

The museum was designed to look like a prairie fire hints the name.

They have three huge fossils in the front hall. One giant fish, a reptile and a T-Rex. The fish and reptile fossil were found in western Kansas and are very large.

The museum is fun for ages. The hole experience takes about an hour or a little more. It is very imfomative. One of the last exhibits has a touch screen where you can design your own dinosaur as my wife briefly demonstrates.
