Two temporary exhibits are scheduled to open at a Manhattan heritage and science center.
Visitors to the Flint Hills Discovery Center can access the new attractions starting on Friday.
An exhibit titled “Flint Hills FORCES II” explores the time period between 1917 and 1963 when the city, Fort Riley and Kansas State University intertwined to become one community. Visitors can learn about World War I trench warfare, the Great Depression and the Roaring ’20s. It will run until February.
A center manager tells WIBW-TV the showcases provide access to items that have been kept behind closed doors.
A children’s exhibit titled “Animal Secrets” will be housed until Jan. 14. Viewers can learn where chipmunks sleep or what an eagle feeds its young.
