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.

a wonderful treat. Walked through this free museum and was captivated by almost everything. Got a free bow! Saw history and Christmas Tree displays, Mr. Halls life story and his families continued legacy. A must see!! Good for every age group.

Around the corner from other attractions at Crown Center is the Hallmark visitors center. I really enjoyed the history of the company in the front including some works by Winston Churchill and Norman Rockwell. After the decade through decade history of the company are the Christmas trees that were created by the staff every year. Really cool to see how... More

Hallmark has a place in the hearts of a lot of people, me included. So I was happy to be visiting here. However, other than nice static displays that harken back to olden days, the best thing by far was the ribbon making machine at the end of the tour. Finally something interactive! They are missing an opportunity to have... More

This visitor's center has been in Kansas City for a number of years and I'm so glad that I finally got to visit here! The best part about our visit to the Hallmark Visitor's Center is that we arrived on a day when it was not busy. It seems like it would be a very challenging thing to visit here... More

A quick diversion within the confines of what has become a good one day site for attractions one can go to the Hallmark Visitor Center and check out the history of Joyce Hall and the Hallmark greeting card empire. Historical items telling the story, a wall of ornaments, although it would be nice to display all of them, some kid... More
