With summer break coming up and lots of adventures to embark upon, I thought I would share my top picks for museums to visit in Kansas City. These museums are great for locals and visitors alike! As you know, we love to visit museums of all types, and we have visited a lot of them in our area. These are some of our favorites.
We have been here a bunch of times and we always enjoy admiring the amazingly detailed miniatures and reminiscing about the toys!
We only visited this museum once and I thought it was well done, but my kids were a little young for it when we went. I think they are old enough now though!
This small museum in Independence details the history of the area as a starting point for the wagon trails that led west to Santa Fe, Oregon, and California. [blog post]
