The Hallmark Visitors Center is a bit like its Crown Center location, a bit worn and tired. The exhibits are informative and well done; but we left feeling really let down. All-in-all, it is a free activity which is good; but with all the creative minds at Hallmark, it could have been so much better and interactive.

Small museum that covers the founding of Hallmark and the intervening years. Interesting to see so many of the products that Hallmark has offered over the years. Only takes about a half hour to go through. Best of all it's FREE!

Interesting city history and information. Demonstrates the work and time put into making cards. Explains why this company has been a place to work for so many decades.

Downtown across from the Train station, shops, museums, movie, water fountains, very nice hotel and 5 star restaurant, It's a blast to just walk around and see all their shops, three level parking and get the ticket validated for free parking

My son wasn't sure about this one, but once we went in and saw all the memorabilia they had, it drew our interest. We also enjoyed seeing the bow made . The only complaint was the confusing parking and lack of any handicapped parking anywhere nearby.

The staff was very friendly. I enjoyed seeing the history of Hallmark, including special touches from the employees. Young kids won't be as entertained with the history, but they do enjoy making their own trademark Hallmark bow in the machine. A special touch was the highlights to the Hallmark movies.

Very interesting seeing how Hallmark got started and how it has become the empire it is today! The best part was getting to make a miniature bow that you get to take with you for free!

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
