Renowned for its sunflowers, windswept wheat fields and endless cattle ranches, Kansas evokes the legendary spirit of America’s heartland with its rolling plains and pioneer spirit. Home to buffalo, wild horses, majestic prairies, and breathtaking views of the nation’s last wilderness reserves, those who live here are captivated by its beauty. From its Native American roots to its role in westward expansion, Kansas represents the heart of what makes our nation great. Filmed by Drone-tography, and with music by Trevor Stewart, Kansas: An Immersive Dome Experience presents the beauty and wonder of the Sunflower State in the giant dome theater at Exploration Place. Filming began in April 2021 and covers more than 40 locations across the length and breadth of the state.

Length: 25 minutes
