The only negative was finding the parking garage and then how to get to the front door. Nice little museum with the history of everything from the cards, the ornaments and the TV shows/movies. Glad we went.

Love seeing the history and artistry behind Hallmark cards and ornaments. Be sure to go to the website before your visit and print out the coupon for a free Keepsake Ornament.

Thanks so much for your review. We are unfamiliar with the free ornament coupon you mention. It is not an offer we have on the Hallmark Visitors Center's website. Perhaps you found it on another website? We do not have Keepsake Ornaments on hand to honor such a coupon. More

If you want to know the history of Hallmark and take a look at how it evolved over time, this is the place for you. The museum is well done and the staff delightful. A bit disappointed with the size of the store, but oh well. A very good experience overall.

Take a stroll down memory lane as you walk the halls viewing various Hallmark merch and ornaments. It's fun talking to my daughter showing her how things used to look and were made. Our daughter loves making her own red bow every time we go there. It's right next door to Kaleidoscope as well which is an added bonus.

Nice to see the Hallmark ornaments & Maxine was there too! My daughter has collected the mischievous kitten ornament since their beginning in 1999.

I think you have to be really in to Hallmark to appreciate this sort of thing. The company presents itself as some kind of national institution, however I kept thinking - Geez, how many overpriced greeting cards did people have to buy to pay for all of this. Glad the tour was free. At least we only wasted our time... More

Appreciate your tough criticism. In our defense, I have to say we have a lot to be proud of and Hallmark does offer a wide selection of cards, some costing as low as 99 cents. Best regards! More

As a purchaser of hundreds of Hallmark cards and a fan of their shows, a stop here was a must. There is s great overview of the business from inception today. It's a walk down memory lane seeing card designs, ornaments and movie banners. The self guided tour included making a bow and a photo op. Allow at least 45... More

We stumbled upon the Hallmark Center on a quick walk while taking a break at meeting. Shops are fun…did you know that Hallmark makes Crayola? For kids, there are fun photo ops, lego sculptures, and a free Mr. Potato Head event. There is a fudge shop and candy shop to make you drool. Check it out!
