Flint Hills Discovery Center is located in Manhattan, Kansas. It was designed by a team of educators who wanted to provide a space for learning about and maintaining the historical remembrance of life here in Kansas. The center is open to the public Tuesday through Saturday, 10 am to 5 pm, with reduced hours on Sunday from 12 pm to 5 pm. An admission fee is required. The Southeast parking lot is free, with metered parking surrounding the building. A free parking garage is located next to the Hilton Garden Inn and the Manhatten Conference Center. The building itself is three stories high with a central lobby and second and third-floor balconies. It features a 65-foot tall cylinder glass curtain wall design along with a rooftop terrace.

Public indoor space is available during business hours, and public outdoor areas are available from 7 am to 10 pm. The building is 35,000 square feet and is an interactive museum. This includes a theater with top-notch audio, lights, and innovative effects that bring the experience of Kansas to life during the 15-minute historical documentaries. The theater is free to enter with a general admission ticket. There is a prairie garden terrace and a play area just for kids. A gift shop is located within the lobby next to guest services.
