Local Area Overview
Harry S. Truman Library and Museum: Presidential Museums are kind of a big deal. There are only 18 of them and this is the only one to feature the saucy letter correspondence between Bess and Harry.
Crown Center: Ever wonder what Hallmark does with all that sentimental birthday card profit? We have the answer—they own and operate the Crown Center. This commercial complex and neighborhood in downtown KC is home to numerous residences, retail shops, and entertainment venues. It’s also home to Hallmark’s global, “Card Empire” headquarters.
American Jazz Museum: With the Blue Room and even the larger Gem Theatre on site, you certainly ought to catch a jazz show if you drop by the museum. Don’t feel it’s necessary, however, to speak with a jazzier-than-normal accent because you think a real jazz dude will call you out and embarrass you.
Leila's Hair Museum: Before you’re weirded out, pat the top or side of your head. Most likely, you have hair. Many people have it. This museum has a lot of it. Most of the items in the museum are made out of hair. Okay, I guess that is kind of weird. Too weird to pass up.
Arrowhead Stadium: Home to arguably the most crazed NFL fans in the universe, Arrowhead is packed every fall for Chiefs football games. It won’t be easy to find tickets, but if you can, wear red, eat barbeque, and chop your hand like a tomahawk when the rest of the crowd does—you’ll fit right in.
