My grandmother was the first person in our family to discover this museum. She talked about how great it was, but frankly, it just didn't sound interesting. But on my last visit to Missouri she finally convinced me to go. Now, it's my favorite spot in Kansas City, second only to the museum. The story of the Steamboat Arabia, it's excavation, extrication and preservation of it's cargo and it's history are a fascinating vehicle for time travel. If you have the chance to visit Kansas City, this should definitely be on your itinerary.
