The interaction with the volunteers was excellent. I work at a historic site myself so I judge by that. They could do so much more if they had the funding. Volunteers are pretty knowledgeable and it was a great day to visit.

This is an interesting historical place to visit that truly feels like an actual old town complete with people dressed in character cooking and tending the land. It's a lovely place to just walk around as well. Good for all ages.

This visit could not have been better! Each building was decorated for Christmas and a person in period costume provided background and information on the decor and timeframe. Hot cider, friendship tea, ginger cookies, and sugar cookies were a yummy treat. Live animals were accessible...More

Missouri Town consists of log cabins and buildings moved from different locations in Missouri to Lee's Summit to preserve history that would otherwise have been lost. We visited on a Tuesday and were virtually the only visitors there. We later found out that Wednesdays, Thursdays,...More
