Since I care to only send the very best advise, I highly recommend a visit to the Hallmark Visitors Center. The centers displays will take you back a 100 years to when Hallmark got its start right up to present day. It will bring back childhood memories and give you chills when you see the history behind Hallmark and the... More

This was a lot better than I exprected. It had a rheatre where it showed the history of Hallmark. The exhibits showed all of the old and new cards, collectables and movies. There was a few interactive items, like making a bow, photos whre you could E-mail them to anyone and showed a lot of their commercials in several languages.

This was a wonderful trip through the history of Hallmark cards. It is a self guided tour that does not take a lot of time, but it is time well spent. You will see the story of Joyce Hall who started his company through hard work and perseverance. There are exhibits of different tree decorations and the story of the... More

Located within the Crown Center development, be sure to check this out. The free tour lets visitors trace the history of Hallmark, which remains a family-run business. Lots of memorabilia in the display cases which was appropriate to each time period. Don't miss the Christmas "tree" area, displaying tree-shaped art created for Mr. Hall. There is also a chance to...

We stopped in and took the self guided free tour. There was lots of interesting history about the creation of the company. They also had a large collection of memorabilia from the years that Hallmark has been around. My wife is a big Hallmark fan and she loved it. I found it interesting with some fun history. It is free... More

Didn't really know much about The Hallmark Visitor Centre but saw it on some literature and thought we would have a look. A very interesting trip through memory lane. Free to look round. So interesting to see how cards have evolved over the years. Some of the old adverts from around the world were a real treat. Press the button... More

This walk through tour shows the history of the hallmark company along with cards and other memorabilia. One of the fun parts is the stations where you can watch classic hallmark commercials from over the years -- most of which still made me tear up ;)

The Hallmark Visitors Center was a very interesting look at the history of Hallmark Cards and the various aspects of the business. The greeters were very knowledgable and friendly. Parking at the Crown Center Complex is very confusing and not labeled very well. Ensure you proceed all the way down to the Crown Center complex and take your parking ticket... More

Nice visitors center. Got a decent idea how greeting cards and other Hallmark staples are made. The historical sections brought back lots of memories. Unfortunately, the movie section was closed for a private party - probably would have answered more questions.
