The weather was so amazing on the day that we went so that made it a relaxing and enjoyable walk around the property. We had a good time looking at the buildings and reading the brochure as we went. The staff was busy setting up for an evening event so there were no characters to interact with and many of... More

We took grandchildren on the fall Arts and Crafts day, where artisans set up booths showing their homemade items for sale. Most were dressed in vintage clothing and our grandchildren liked the various stations where they could learn to play with vintage toys, games, archery, etc. There were many different food booths for lunch. We had a good time, but... More

Missouri Town 1855 is in Lee's Summit, MO. It was quite difficult to find....the signage wasn't abundant at all and our gps didn't get us all the way to the park entrance. We had to do a bit of guessing which eventually paid off. This is a small living history museum. We were not there on an event day, so... More

We had a lovely time here. We didn't have enough time to do it justice. We were a large group, and the lady that takes care of the animals in particular was very friendly. It was an informative and interesting tour.

My kids go to Missouri Town for their fall festival every year with their grandma...she has even had to coordinate her retirement travels around this because all the grand kids beg her to take them. Period costumes, buildings and historical events/reenactments all on the grounds. Great place!

The layout is wonderful for a nice walk around the grounds. The historical buildings are well kept and delightful. There are oxen, sheep and a horse on site. This is a great place for a family day or taking photographs. Volunteers on site are dressed in period costume adding to the experience. They are friendly, informative and love sharing history....

Great place to take the kids on a spring day. During the summer can be brutally hot, because there is no air in any of the buildings. But fun place, a must for Jackson county residents. They also have seasonal stuff to do, that is fun too

Love the quiet walk through the town , especially during the fall. Beautiful trees! Oktoberfest held in October is a great family outing. they also have the best Turkey Legs during that event! If you like the era of 1855 then you will like visiting here

Missouri Town takes you back in time. Lots of fun for the kids, & lots of interesting information about history. There is also very good food.

We visited in mid-Sept., so after Labor Day. The weather was great, and it was not crowded so we could linger to take photos, watch the animals, and imagine life 'in-the-day here.' There were docents dressed in character, the mercantile sells reproduction items and there is a gift shop in the first building where you pay a small admission fee... More
