Squeezing in a Few More Weeks of Summer Fun in Kansas City

Summer is almost over, but there are still a few more weeks left to squeeze in some fun in Kansas City.  The weather is cooling off a bit, so it’s a great time to head outdoors and enjoy a walk in the park.  Many farmers’ markets are also still open, so you can still pick up fresh vegetables and fruit. 

What else is there to do in Kansas City?  The Kansas City Zoo has a great number of animals for the kids to see, and there’s even a petting zoo area where they can meet some of these animals up close and personal.  You can even get a coupon for a free child’s admission when you purchase an adult admission.

For those who don’t want to spend the day in the heat, there’s the Harry S. Truman Library and Museum.  The museum includes many different interesting exhibits, including the Memories of Korea special exhibit.  Exhibits highlighting Truman’s life and his presidency shouldn’t be missed.  Two for one admission coupons are available up through December 31.

For those with young children, the Wonderscope Children’s Museum may be of more interest.  Here, kids can explore the world via a number of different hands-on exhibits.  One of the most popular is the LEGO Ocean Adventure that gives kids the chance to learn about the ocean while playing with large LEGO bricks.

Finally, the Toy & Miniature Museum has 38 rooms showing off a large number of marbles, miniatures, and nostalgic toys.  Some of these toys will bring back memories of childhood.  The museum has everything from steam engine trains to vintage games and some one of a kind toys, too.
