Nice history of an iconic American company

Nice self guided tour showing the history of a company that probably the majority of the country knows through their greeting cards, Christmas ornaments, and tv shows.

We've been to the KC area several times and each time the visitors center has always been closed or we couldn't make it based on our schedule. We finally had a chance to stop and see it. It was a hidden surprise and well worth the visit. You can see the history of Hallmark cards, wrapping paper, movies. Lots of... More

We learned so much during our brief visit. Suggest taking the time to see the video. It lasts about 15 minuted,is well done, and very informative. Particularly enjoyed seeing the Christmas tree display.

Hallmark is not only an iconic brand known the world over but has become part of ‘Pop Culture’ in a way I’m sure most people can say they’ve had a ‘Hallmark Moment’, although I admit I’ve grown up in a cynical world and probably used another term at certain times of the year. So whilst in Kansas the opportunity to... More

Hallmark Cards is a household name, come to this museum and find out how it got that way. The story of JC Hall is very well done, presented in true Hallmark style and class. Interesting displays that don't take a lot of time to read and process. The staff was very outgoing and engaging.

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
