I had no idea about the history of Excelsior Springs. The building was unique and filled with great information about the town and how it was once 'the place to go'. It does need some restoration. It would be even better if you could view...More

By the name I had no clue what it was about. Healing springs and beautiful architecture. Its definitely worth the stop while you're in town. Its a beautiful example of Art Deco and there arent many great examples in this neck of the woods.

I asked about this too. They said the cost would be insurmountable with all the red tape a person would have to go through to make it possible. So sad! I would have LOVED to experience the waters personally!!!
