Hallmark has done a great job putting together a free attraction that was enjoyable for the whole family. This is the second time I've been. My kids both love the bow machine where you can make a souvenir to take home. My favorite part is seeing all of the keepsake ornaments. I would recommend making this a part of an... More

This was an enjoyable visit learning about the history behind the Hallmark brand. The short movie about the Hall family was certainly worth watching. There is no fee to visit and you will leave with some cute souvenirs including a bow made for you.

We stopped by and had a great history lesson on a wonderful company. The Hallmark company had a wonderful short film on the Hall family. We enjoyed seeing all the different displays. I wished the gift shop would have had the older movies for sale. Free and so worth it.

It's not huge but still packed with so much stuff. I learned a lot about Hallmark. The whole staff was so friendly. I think I spent 20 minutes just watching the old commercials.

This is a great little gem and is located at Crown Center. It is located on the west side. Inside there are displays of some of the cards from days gone by, including cards that were made for several of our Presidents. There are also many, many ornaments displayed. My favorite display was the specially-decorated Christmas trees that Hallmark artists... More

If you ever purchased a Hallmark card, checkout the small, free, introduction to Hallmark cards. The extraordinary film of J.C. Hall is worth the visit. Plenty of parking, superb staff, and proximity to Crown Plaza make it an A+ attraction.

We were going to pass through Kansas City Mo on our way home so we decided to stop and visit the Visitors Center. My wife and kids got to see the center 25 years ago while I was at a training school and I did not get to see it. It was worth the stop. We arrived a little early... More

The highlight is the short movie on the family history. Otherwise it is something some executive felt they should have and just said visitors expect one so make one, but go overboard.

This museum would be an an interesting stop for Hallmark card fans, but a stretch for everyone else. We popped in after seeing a sign on our way to the WWI Museum. I would not rank it as a days destination, but as an add on it was fine.

A combination of the history of the Hallmark company and promotion for its past and present products. Heavy emphasis on Christmas decorations, and of course greeting cards. Hubby found the video of workers explaining how they came up with ideas, and the ribbon-bow making machine (free samples) to be interesting. Wife liked the many Hallmark theater films, several available by... More
