“Historical Significance and Well Appointed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2012

The museum contains a church, tea room and plenty of display rooms that take you on a historical journey of the eastern Europeans that settled in Kansas City, Kansas in an area referred to as "Strawberry Hill". The original clothing, old pictures, crafts are all on display and displayed artfully and respectfully throughout the rooms of this wonderful piece of history. Clearly, a must see whether you're eastern European or not. Tour guides are always eager to assist you and tell of the history of the site.

“Worth the visit”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2012

We enjoyed the tour and information provided. It is a short but informative tour. It's a bit out of the way but worth finding. They provide information on Polish influences on the area. A great time on a rainy day.

“Unexpected Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2012

Went at Christmastime when all the festive decor was present. That added an extra dimension. The history here is exceptional. I grew up in KCK and have lived in the area all my life,so some local history was very well received. a unique experience

“A place to get an immigrant flavor”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2012

Many major cities have areas that are little ethnic enclaves, that still retain the flavor of the early 20th century rush of immigration from Europe. At this museum and home, you will experience what it might have been like coming to Kansas City in 1910 from Croatia or Slovakia. A very nice place for those of us that have roots in the old country to see what our grandparents were faced with...
