Another excellent traveling exhibit put on by Crown Center. Plan on spending at least two hours. Not recommended for small children who like to rush through things and do not have the patience to listen or read.

I'm so glad to hear you enjoyed Crown Center and the King Tut exhibit which is located at our neighbor, Union Station. We've gone through a few renovations this year, so I hope you come back to see all the changes. Crown Center will have a wonderful exhibit after the first of the year, February 7 - May 3, 2015,...

Great event for all! It gets better every year. The bands were fantastic, the vendors were friendly and had all types of items in all price ranges, the volunteers rocked the place with their enthusiasm and most importantly, the Boulevard beer was cold and plentiful!

This place has something for everybody. There's great shopping, a movie theater, fountains, and even a Lego restaurant. Nice place

Thank you for your nice review. I love our Center and all the things we have to offer. Sitting outside to watch the fountains is one of my favorite things, especially during our fountain shows. Jo Brown Crown Center More

It isn't super special, but a good place if you are looking for something to eat. We stopped at A Streetcar Named Desire, and they had some pretty decent food there.

Thank you for your review. I too love Streetcar Named Desire for a great hamburger. Get it topped with cheddar cheese and grilled onions, Yum. I think I'm ready for lunch. Jo Brown Crown Center More

Walked around these shops from the skybridge between here and Union Station. WOW! Great selection of shops and eateries made us wish our stay was going to be longer. Friendly people, clean, bright & colorful....MUCH wider variety of shops than we expected and lots of fun! We especially enjoyed the transition area to the Westin hotel with the waterfall area....

Thanks for sharing your time with us. I appreciate you taking the time to review Crown Center. The Westin Crown Center is such a beautiful and classy hotel and with the waterfall, I agree, it is a great photo op. I hope you come back and enjoy Crown Center again. Jo Brown Crown Center More

I had it in my mind that Crown Center was this great place with so many cool stores and stuff to do, and we could spend our whole KC vacation there! But it was not like that. It is basically a shopping mall with an excellent food court and a few close-by activities for kids. There really aren't even that... More

We thought we could easily spend four hours here while my husband was doing something else, but we were bored after about two hours. We did Kaleidoscope and the Hallmark Visitors Center, and then we went to eat at the food court of the Crown Center. We walked around, but none of the shops appealed to us and we found... More

If you are staying at one of the hotels attached for a conference or weekend adventure, this is a nice place to shop to kill time during breaks. I would not really recommend it as a destination. Mostly restaurants that are closed during the evening (think food court). THere is a department store (Halls) that is actually pretty nice because... More

Nice for all weather conditions. Large variety of foods available, most of them much nicer than your usual mall food court selections. Nice variety of shops. Things to keep kids entertained.

Lots of stores and food. There was a candy shop that was especially neat. Lots of fudge that you could watch being made, and tons of other specialty candy items. All that we bought and tried were tasty. There is a large Crayola store that has a lot of neat items as well as things for the kids to play... More
