This place is cool, and FREE

This place was awesome!! Took two of my boys here and they had a blast doing all of the fun creative things. Best of all it didn't make an impact on my already tight budget.

Show up early to get FREE entrance tickets for a time that works well for you. Once you are in, your child gets to be totally creative with black light paint, a dance station (duck low to enter!), puzzles waiting to be created, watercolors, and lots of chances to make arts and crafts! Hallmark has definitely made an impressive attraction... More

One great place to take kids and best - it is FREE. Kids are given 45 minutes of time to do arts and crafts that they can take home. Near Crown Center and does validate parking. Next to Hallmark museum, which is free also.

My 5 year old loved this place. WE went back 3 times during spring break. She liked making puzzles and cards. The one thing that would have been nice is having some glue sticks, everything must be taped on, which is hard for little fingers to break off tape. They will validate your parking card if you park in crown... More

It simply a really cute Free thing to do in KC. You kids will love the 50 minutes they spend there and ask to go back again. This was my first time visiting. Although my kids have been on school field trips. I know understand the hype. Again it's Free.

Hey, your kids will love you for this one (up to about 10 years). To top that, the adults will have fun too. A great Saturday in mid-town.

My whole family had a blast at this place, making crafts, seeing cool exhibits, super colorful and super fun. I could go on and on, but the pictures are far more cool then words could explain.....and the price is AWESOME!! Thanks Hallmark.

Hallmark sponsors Kaleidoscope. It has been an institution for grade school children taking field trips for years in KC. Bring your kids and help them explore their creative side working on an art/craft project at Kaleidoscope, they will have a blast.

We found Kaleidoscope to be an innovative attraction. They, in part, use left over materials from Hallmark manufacturing. Children (and adults) are invited to create puzzles, water colorings and various crafts with these recycled materials. They provide all the necessary elements to create. Best of all it's completely FREE. The craft sessions are approximately 45 minutes in duration. They are... More

I had read the reviews and was fairly excited to visit Kaleidoscope. When we arrived, my boys (ages 11 & 8) were totally bored. There seemed to be several younger children - I would guess the average age to be around 5. There were lots of places you could create your own artwork, but the markers were all very dried... More
