We enjoy visiting this place in winter with the decorations, etc. Not a lot of special places but still worth a visit to stroll around and relax. Shopping would be more for families with younger children though.

Even though I live in Kansas City, I still enjoy visiting Crown Center. There is always something new and exciting to see! During the Christmas holidays, Crown Center is beautifully decorated and it feels very festive. The 100'+ Mayor's Christmas tree sits across the street from Crown Center and the entire square is decorated with lights. And if you like... More

We went to KC for a three day girls trip. We had heard great things about this shopping center and were VERY disappointed. There is mostly kid stores and cutesy shops in this shopping center. No large department stores or fun boutiques. While the fountains outside are pretty and good for a photo opportunity, we left quickly. Not worth the... More

We were looking for something less geared towards the kids-very pricey specialty stores-not much for us!

We went thinking this was more of a mall, however it really is aimed at families with children. Most of the stores are child friendly. For the amount of time it took to get through construction and find a parking spot it was not worth it.

This was touted by locals as a main attraction, so my expectations were higher. It's just a mall with a few kids' attractions attached to it. I assume it would be fun to spend a day there with kids checking out the aquarium, Lego world, Kaleidoscope, etc. However, for my husband and I, no kids, and we're not big shoppers,... More

There are a few places to eat and get some snacks. The shopping isn't mainstream. It's smaller stores.

Thank you for sharing your review with us, Autumn. Adding restaurants is important to us and with the construction of Spin Pizza, it will be a wonderful addition to Crown Center. More

the Crowne Center has some nice shops if that is what you like to do. Personally we walked around and explored Union Station, the plaza had an art show presented by Hallmark employees that had some nice pieces.

Thank you Cinda for your review on Crown Center. Also, so glad you enjoyed our Hallmarket, the art show you were referring to. Crown Center has a number of events planned without the year. Unfortunately October is quieter than most months as we start gearing up for the arrival of the Mayor’s Christmas Tree, opening of the Ice Terrace and... More

Crown Center is an OK shopping destination, but I don't think I'll be going back. The place looks like it may be in need of a bath, and the stores are strung out in a confusing line that would be difficult for some people to navigate. There are long, unlit hallways to navigate, and the stores are inexplicably scattered willy-nilly... More

I’m deeply sorry to hear your visit to Crown Center wasn’t a positive experience. For the past several months Crown Center has been going through renovations to update brighten our Center. Our 3rd floor of the shops has been turned into a beautiful innovative shopping experience called Halls on Grand. Also, a few of our other stores have been doing... More
