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.
