This is a great museum and very well curated. It really is two parts. The inside museum which is excellent and the actual outside memorial which is impressive and if you have not been to Kansas City before, the view of the city is great. This is a must see if you visit Kansas City. parking can be a little tough on the loop road in front of the museum, but it is a nice walk if you can't find a spot. Don't miss the café, great food, wonderful personal service

A taste of country dropped into the city. Something for everyone: Cow milking demo, goat feeding, pony rides, bobcats, blacksmith demo, ice cream store, playgrounds, one room schoolhouse, and more. Many educational aspects. Stroller friendly. Children will love it; teens--not so much.

Park Place features specialty shops & boutiques in an environment of tree-lined streets & public squares. Unique local & national restaurants serve a variety of cuisine & offer outdoor dining. Considered Leawood's downtown at 117th & Nall Ave.
Wonderful place to visit for special shopping you will not find elsewhere. Plenty of really good restaurants to chose from.
Gordon B., Grille at Park Place, among others. You can ice skate, or just stroll around and enjoy the view. A small version of the Plaza.

Wonderscope Children's Museum of Kansas City sparks a lifelong love of learning through the power of play. Wonderscope is a family-friendly place full of imaginative, interactive exhibits and programs where young children and adults can explore and discover the adventure of learning together.
This is a great place if you need to let a toddler run wild for a few hours; be prepared for the kids to get wet, and messy as there is a room they can use paints!

How did I not know about this place??? Huge space, lots to see, well-presented booths, definitely something for everyone here. Novices to serious collectors are all welcomed, prices from low to high to everything in between. Not as much low-end "junk" as other antique malls we've visited. Will be going again!

Drop in for an hour, come for lunch, or spend the entire day wandering through world-class galleries. The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art is the cultural jewel of Kansas City and just three blocks from the Country Club Plaza, and admission is free. The Nelson-Atkins, recognized as one of America’s finest art museums, strives to be the place where the power of art engages the spirit of community. With 40,000 works of art, the Nelson-Atkins is best known for its new Bloch Galleries, featuring Impressionist and Post-Impressionist art, plus its Asian art, photography, American paintings, American Indian and Egyptian galleries. The Donald J. Hall Sculpture Park, a beautiful setting for a walk or picnic, is an oasis in the city and home to notable sculptures.
We chose to visit the Nelson-Atkins Museum because they were hosting an exhibit entitled “Through the Eyes of Picasso.” The exhibit examined Picasso’s influence by and use of African and other aboriginal images, especially tribal masks. In some cases, a specific mask was shown alongside a Picasso painting, making it undeniable that this was the source. We began to think about some of Picasso’s works that were already familiar to us and suddenly began to see the aboriginal influence. It was a terrific exhibit that will forever inform our appreciation of the works of one of our favorite artists.
The museum also had a Chinese exhibit called “Dreams of the Kings,” a collection of art and other items from the Han Dynasty, including an entire full-body suit of jade. It took about 90 minutes to see both exhibits and take the requisite photos outside by the giant shuttlecocks.

Always a pleasure when traveling to find where the locals go to met and eat. Nice nooks for gathering. They have something I found unique, that is the bread from the bakery next door, they share an open wall between them and you can move from the bakery to the coffee shop. You can get a slice of the bakery bread, toasted and topped with a variety of jelly or peanut butter. I tried the Walnut Berry with peanut butter and honey. While it's a local favor and recommended I did not find it much to my taste. It wasn't bad, tasty of course, but diffidently a local favor. It was very interesting to see the bread baked in such a manner and stacked on it's end until ordered. Good Latte and service. Charming. Business people there with laptops, free internet, Families there, Mom and kids. Good mix. Enjoyed the morning newspaper and reading here. There are photos on their website. Take a look!

The Arboretum has several different areas to relax and enjoy nature. We really enjoy the hiking trails in back. Trails of varying lengths wind through woods, along streams, beside cliffs. We've run into deer on the longer back trails. Highly recommended.

Fun place to go to buy fresh produce, plants, flowers and more. The prices aren't cheap, but you are supporting local folks, so that makes it ok. It can get pretty crowded. Also, good idea to take canvas bag to carry stuff

We attended a national convention here and found it to be more than adequate. The smaller rooms were perfect for our committee meeting and merchandise stores. The large areas accommodated our business meetings and grand banquet. Very effiencient layout. Convenient location to restaurants and shopping. Free parking.
