“A kids dream art world”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2013

The adults are encouraged to butt out and let the kids have their fun. They want the kids to be creative and give them all kinds of different mediums to work with. There is a dark room with black lights and melted crayons for the kids to paint with, a puzzle maker so you can make your own puzzle, and every kind of leftover material you could need to make cards or pictures with from ribbon, to boxes, to stickers.. and the best part... it was free!

“This is so fun and I can't believe that they don't charge”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2013

If you have small kids, or even big kids this is so much fun. The Hallmark museum is interesting, but this was over the top awesome. We have been many times and it never disappoints. The staff are so nice and there is such a variety of things for the kids to make and so there. Even boys love it, but there is a limit to how much stand still and make art that they can be expected to do. For my girls, they were in heaven. All the art supplies you could possibly hope for and an insanely fun environment too. We went with our 4-H club once and had about 20 kids running around loving it!

“Artsy fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

Very creative and fun place for kids, and free! You will have to call ahead and be sure there's room because it can get super busy.

“Nice for Pre-schoolers through 8 year olds.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2013

Various creative stations allowing children to explore their inner artist. All for free. Only so many are allowed per 40 minute session so plan on getting there and possibly waiting until next session begins. Children are allowed to bring home the fruits of their labor with bags provided.

“Fun and Free”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

We took our 3 children here during a recent stay in Kansas City. They really enjoyed it! Pro: It is free and they have lots of supplies for the kids to use. Con: Some stations were chaotic and it was a little crowded.
