I have been a couple of times and kids love it. If you have little ones between 4 -13 they should enjoy it. Check their web site first for activities going on the day of your visit to get the most out of your visit! My son LOVED the blacksmith shop, he even got to help!

This is a great place for families to visit. Kids can help with different activities. Sheep shearing was popular when we were there.

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
