Kansas City Things to Do: 31 reviews and 58 photos

Surprisingly there is quite a bit to see in Kansas City and surrounding area, especially a great deal relating to American Indians and the pioneer days of way back when. So here are a few suggestions: the Grinter State Historical Site (home of Moses Grinter, one of the earliest settlers in Kansas), Huron Indian cemetary (where many of the great people of the Wyandot Nation were buried after forced resttlement from the shores of Lake Erie in Ohio -- when it was much more beautiful and clean -- to Kansas), Line Creek Museum of Archaeology (located on the Hopewell Indian site), Wyandotte County Historical Society and Museum, Wyandotte County Lake Park, National Agricultural Center and Hall of Fame, the Truman Library, Kansas City Museum, Science City at Union Station, American Royal Museum, the City Market and the Arabia Steamboat Museum, the Kansas City Zoo and the IMAX Theatre, the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art and the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art.

Focus on those things that interest you since most have some sort of admissions fee.
