    The museum was very nice and informative on the causes of WWI as well as the atrocities of what the battles were like. The tower and the view from it were simply stunning. You should beware that on the super hot days they will close the tower, so it is best to arrive early on the hotter days of summer and go ahead and enjoy that view!

    Amazing Museum. You will need a whole day or a couple of visits to explore it all. Breath taking collection of art. Highly recommend.

    The story as told on "vintage" video was helpful in setting the date/time of recovery. Number of artifacts recovered and their condition was amazing. Best part was having a son of one of the original recoverers available as a resource!

    Since no one takes trains anymore - it was nice to see KC preserve this building. We really enjoyed touring this architectural gem.

    Let me tell you, that was the biggest ice cream I have ever has in a ballpark!
    The place is clean and it was easy to get in and out. We have now seen over 14 different ball parks and this one was very nice.

    We went here in celebration of my oldest daughters birthday. We got there just after doors opened on a Sunday. The crowd level was minimal which was great. Every park worker we encountered was friendly and helpful. My only advice would be to bring quarters for feeding areas. The park advertises as being cashless, but there are different areas where you can feed some of the animals, but the dispensers only take quarters and there aren’t any change machines close by. Ticket prices were extremely reasonable. We spent just over $100 for 6 people. We will definitely add this to our “will do again” list in KC.

    We drove to the museum and easily found a parking spot on the street. There were lots of pictures, uniforms , old baseball equipment and stories about the lives of many of the players. Times were tough for the players in segregated times. They had trouble finding places to stay and places to eat. Fortunately many of the stars of the Negro Leagues got to play in the big leagues after Jackie Robinson broke the race barrier in 1947. I remember seeing a lot of them play in the old Kansas City Athletics Stadium back in the 1950's and 60's.

    Came for the architecture and did not leave disappointed! It's a lovely open air market / mall with your standard retail shops housed in some beautiful Moorish Revival.

    Very fun bar, multiple floors and very nice atmosphere.
    Very good service, you can taste beer before ordering it. Limited (expensive) food choices though, but I totally recommend the visit.

    What a great way to use an old train station. Since no one take the train anymore - it was nice to see this building preserved and filled with activity.

    There's NOTHING you can do that's more fun than taking a tour of Tom's Town! When you're done make sure you stop at the bar and have a drink with Joy. She's THE BEST bartender you could ever want. And if you're lucky you'll get to talk to JT, who's the manager here and knows EVERYTHING about the products!!! He's so knowledgeable and so interesting!!! He'll tell you what to mix (and more importantly what NOT to mix) with each of the spirits they make. You CANNOT go wrong coming here! It's one of the most fun experiences you can have in KC.

    It is a very nice building and everything is more like a gallery. We felt underdressed in our t-shirts. Super affordable price of admission is only $5. The miniatures are incredible and there are soooooo many. It was definitely different than what I expected from reading about in a travel book. They do have a scavenger hunt for the kids to do to win a prize, which helped get them involved seeing more of it.

    Although this place is free, they recommend you book time online before going. Not knowing how our first day in KC would go, I didn't do this but luckily they had no-shows and let us in. My daughter is 10 and really enjoyed being here. There were lots of stations to create, color, cut, tape (my daughter LOVES tape...), a place to design a puzzle and then cut it into pieces, painting with crayola wax too. I didn't know it was timed, so before she did everyting, they said the session had ended and it was time to go. Each child gets a paper bag to put their arts & crafts in to take home. One complaint though - nowhere for the parents to sit. Would've loved some benches, as my daughter takes a long time coloring and creating and I would've loved to sit and enjoy the time there that way....But overall if you have kids, this is a great place to visit.

    We stopped here on a road trip to stretch our legs and get some KC BBQ. For a Saturday afternoon this place was so alive! We took our dog but did not go inside the stores only the outside vendors.

    We took a private tour of Arrowhead Stadium, which after weeks all over the mid-west, turned out to be the highlight for our son (14). Our guide, Al, was friendly, and knowledgeable, and made us lifelong fans instead of casual fans. The tour brought us to the suits, the tunnels, a quick look into the locker rooms (under construction at the time), and Mr. Hunt's private apartment.
    All ended at the Super Bowl trophy.

    Highly recommended!!!
