Tripadvisor should have added the price on each attraction first of all. And the center is free and have information about the company and what they have been achieving. Interesting. The parking entrance sign should be made

This has a self guided tour of displays that show the history of Hallmark. This is the World headquarters for Hallmark. There is an 11 minute film that was very interesting but you must ask them & they will start it anytime in a little auditorium. They have times when Hallmark staff come down & give a discussion of what... More

I agree with a previous review - a hidden gem. While visiting the aquarium & Legoland, you must make the stop at the Hallmark History Center. The memories it brought back for my husband and I were unbelievable and our 12 yr old really enjoyed it as well - lots of visually interesting things to look at - the period... More

I could have spent longer here. There's a lot to read and look at. The kids were antsy. It's free. And you can make a bow and have a picture taken and emailed to you.

I was in and out in 5 minutes, but a friends mother said she could have stayed for days. It wasn't my bag, but it did have lots of displays of their cards and movies over the years.

Across from Crown Center, above the ice terrace and next to Kaleidoscope is a hidden gem. I've lived here for 20 years and had no idea this little treasure was here. Hallmark history, fun interactive exhibits and exceptional displays make this a wonderful place to visit.

Our intention was to see the Hallmark Visitors Center and we were fortunate to stumble on their complimentary Kaleidoscope kids’ craft time. It’s located next door to the actual Hallmark Visitors Center and kids get to run around really fun rooms decorating scraps of paper with paint, markers, glue, you name it. So FUN! As for the actual visitors center,... More

I'm not totally excited about the hallmark tour. Parking was expensive, unattended loud children running about. Which hallmark wasn't to blame. So if you can ignore that definitely check this place out, a lot of cool things around it at crown center. We enjoyed the memorial to Mr. Hall with the trees, very heart warming.

Though it will only take half an hour to see the visitor's center but its worth visiting. The bow making machine attracts everyone from kids to adults, grab some postcards for free at the entrance. Throughout my childhood n teenage years I made handmade cards n gifts for others, it was nice going back the memory lane.If you have kids... More

We were visiting Kansas City and decided to stop by. It was quite interesting to see the displays. Definitely worth the visit. We spent about an hour there. They have an interactive video screen that puts a crown on your head and sends the superimposed image to your email account. Displays included Emmy's from the Hallmark TV shows (which I... More
