The National World War I Museum and Memorial is America's leading institution dedicated to remembering, interpreting and understanding the Great War and its enduring impact on the global community. The Museum holds the most comprehensive collection of World War I objects and documents in the world and is the second-oldest public museum dedicated to preserving the objects, history and experiences of the war. The Museum takes visitors of all ages on an epic journey through a transformative period and shares deeply personal stories of courage, honor, patriotism and sacrifice. Designated by Congress as America's official World War I Museum and Memorial and located in downtown Kansas City, Mo., the National World War I Museum and Memorial inspires thought, dialogue and learning to make the experiences of the Great War era meaningful and relevant for present and future generations.
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

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.

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.

STANDEES is a premium neighborhood movie entertainment experience.
We had a coupon so we tried this theater. It's attached to the C. Frogs restaurant (supposedly you can take food/drink from the restaurant to the theater, but not much info provided. ) The theatre was medium-sized with leather chairs. However, they didn't recline. There were small table surfaces attached to the armrest between each chair, which would probably be convenient if we had had alcoholic beverages or snacks, but for sodas and popcorn were unnecessary and actually in the way.

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

Overland Park Convention Center opened in November of 2002 on a 26-acre site in the heart of Overland Park, the largest suburban city in the Kansas City metropolitan area and the second largest city in Kansas. Adorned with over sixty original works of art and equipped with state-of-the-art communications systems, the 254,000 square foot complex features a 60,000 sq. Ft. Exhibit hall that connects to the 25,000 sq. Ft. Edwin C. Eilert Ballroom and 15,000 sq. Ft. Of meeting room space. Natural light radiates throughout the unusually spacious (44,000 sq. Ft.) Pre-function and registration areas.
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.

This 2-acre garden is part of the Kauffman Legacy Park in the heart of Kansas City. Powell Gardens, in partnership with the Kauffman Foundation, manages and maintains the garden.
This beautiful garden is FREE and very convenient to many popular KC locations...(its by the Plaza and UMKC, minutes from Loose Park, Brookside, Westport, and even downtown)...if you love the outdoors and especially plants and flowers this garden is a must see. Its not that large, you feel like you are in the private garden of royal estate. Its always immaculately maintained. Of course the plants change dramatically with the 4 seasons in KC. In additional to all the wonderful plants and flowers there are several stunning fountains, quaint seating areas, a solarium with restrooms, brick sidewalks that are artwork in themselves, and a large beautiful brick wall surround with iron gates. There is a wonderful blend of plants, flowers, stone, brick, stucco, iron, and wood. If you are in a rush you can see the garden in minutes...but it would also be easy to spend all afternoon at the garden!

The National Museum of Toys and Miniatures, formerly the Toy and Miniature Museum of Kansas City, reopened on August 1, 2015 after an $8 million renovation. The National Museum of Toys and Miniatures features one of the nation's largest collection of antique toys and the world's largest collection of contemporary, fine-scale miniatures.
We spent about two hours browsing this unusual and educational museum. The miniatures were the highlight for us, seeing how intricately-made and incredibly precise each piece of art really is. One can learn some the history of miniature-making and explore the worlds of miniature doll houses, furniture, musical instruments, and household items to name just a few. A docent was explaining to another guest about the miniature harpsichord to your right as you enter the first room. Not only an exact replica, but it makes actual music when played! One would need miniature fingers, of course!
The toy museum brought back many childhood memories as toys from grandpa’s generation were displayed as antiques! I haven’t seen Cooties in 55 years. Yikes! Be sure to watch the video on how wooden horses are made on a lathe, cu out, carved, stained, and painted. Fascinating!
If you have a couple hours be sure to visit this fascinating museum on the UMKC campus. Ample parking.

We went to see Dixie Swim Club. We had seen it many years ago and forgot how funny and poignant it was. The local actors talent level is superb. We enjoy the food and show, don't miss the dessert afterward-which is extra.
