There are a wide variety of interesting exhibits here, from a display of Christmas trees to a bow-making machine (which gives free samples). Everyone knows Hallmark, so it's interesting to see the history of the company. The gift shop is small and disappointing, but then again, you can go to any Hallmark store to buy Hallmark products. On the plus... More

Hallmark Cards Visitors Center. What a treat! Kansas City enjoys another icon of a business founded by Joyce C. Hall and continued by his son Donald Hall, this Hallmark Visitors Center is quite unique! The history of the greeting card and all of the other good things created by Hallmark Cards artists are featured. We spent a lot of time... More

This visitors center could be interesting if you took the time to read the displays. But if you have younger children, there isn't much in the center that will catch their attention.

I was hoping for a look into how cards are made, or maybe a little more than what is actually there. You can see it all in about ten minutes - if you walk slowly. There is a good deal of memorabilia on display, but it is cluttered and has no "story." I was hoping to learn more about how... More

A nice way to spend 45 minutes to an hour when visiting Kansa City. Located in crown center, this FREE attraction gives an overview of the founding Hall Family and the famed Hallmark company. You will see famous original artwork, see presidential Christmas cards, holiday ornaments and can watch videos and even make your own souvenir gift bow. When we... More

Actually, I guess I at least hoped they gave tours of the factory but apparently not. The closest the visitor's center came was a small display of machinery that wasn't operating - although you do get to push a button and watch a machine make a ribbon. You can also get a free postcard. The display of cards was honestly... More

Go and relax for a couple of hours. It really wasn't my first choice or second, but it was nice to spend time there with my wife and daughters.

Family brought us here to see a local landmark, and because I send them so many of these cards through the years! It was a great way to spend a few hours, and to learn the history of the icon. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Afterwards, we took advantage of the shops next door. Can just imagine what this venue must... More

We visited the Center on our way through KC to get out and stretch our legs. We were welcomed by the ladies at the front desk and told to just follow the exhibit around on a self-guided tour. It was interesting to see the collection of memorabilia from the history of Hallmark. It took about 20 minutes and it was... More

My husband and I visited this attraction in early November 2014. We heard it was free and we were staying at the Westin which is attached to the Hallmark Crown Center which includes a shopping mall and other attractions that charge a fee. First, this place is almost impossible to find (we had to ask several people in the Crown... More
