Fun In Kansas City–Missouri Town 1855

On our fourth day of summer break, we finally got a chance to visit Missouri Town 1855, a place we had been meaning to visit for quite a long time, but never were able to. Unlike the other activities I have told you about recently, this one is not free, but is reasonably priced at $5 for adults and $3 for children ages 5-13. Missouri Town demonstrates what a progressive farming community would have looked like around the year 1855. “Missouri Town 1855 is composed of more than 25 buildings dating from 1820 to 1860. This living history museum uses original structures, furnishings and equipment. Also depicting the 19th Century lifestyles are interpreters in period attire, authentic field and garden crops, and rare livestock breeds.”

The sheep were wandering around, but we couldn’t get too close to them because they are scared of people!

We checked out the various buildings and learned what homes would be like at the time.





After we left Missouri Town, we wanted to visit another place nearby called the Native Hooved Animal Enclosure, where you can apparently feed apples or pears to animals including buffalo, elk, and deer; however, the fence was locked so we could not go out to the overlook of the area. This was the most we were able to see:


This ends my series on fun locations to visit in Kansas City – I hope it was interesting!

Adding this one to the list, too! I've never heard of Missouri Town OR the Native Hooved Animal Enclosure. Both look awesome. It's just too bad you weren't actually able to enter the native animal area!

We have a place similar here called Conner Prairie just north of Indianapolis. It's a cool place to visit.
