Well worth the visit

Beautifully preserved historic home! We learned quite a few things about Amelia that we did not previously know - which is always a bonus!!

This lovely home belonged to Amelia's grandparents and was where she was born and spent much of her childhood. It was filled with memorabilia and information about Amelia and her accomplishments. This is a self-guided tour but there is a care taker available to answer questions. Well worth the $5 fee.

This was on our trip headed north and avoiding heavy traffic in Kansas City. It was her grandparents' residence, and it was also where she spent her early school years, attending a private school. It is a well maintained Victorian home on a bluff with a great view of the Missouri River. There are lots of family photos and memorabilia.... More

Took a Family trip to see the birthplace of Amelia Earhart. My girls had read about Amelia Earhart in school and we're excited to see the place that inspired her to great adventures. The house is interesting and filled with historical artifacts, though all are not from the family. The view from the house is amazing!

The museum is worth a stop for the fascinating history it contains. The view of the Missouri River from the museum is breathtaking too. Check out the Amelia Earhart Earthwork in town as well.

This was her grandparents' residence, and it was also where she spent her early school years, attending a private school. The house is a lovely Victorian over the Missouri River, and... More

You won't spend a lot of time at this museum, but it's a definitely a good way to spend an hour or so. I learned things about Amelia Earhart that I didn't know, and it was neat to tour the historical home.

This was a cool museum with lots of ideas and stories, and the house itself was well-maintained. The docents each had their favorite display, as well as their pet theory about what really happened.
