We took our grandchildren ages 4 & 6. They loved being able to wander around through Missouri Town. We visited on their weekend in November with lots of exhibits/vendors.

This is a great little community-like "town" of old homes, a blacksmith, and much more that reflects the lives of our not-too-distant ancestors. It affords an up close and personal view of life in those days of 1855. I attended during an Autumn celebration where...More

We had not visited in a long time and decided to stop by on a Wednesday late morning. We almost had the site to ourselves which was kind of nice. A volunteer, in period dress, was caring for the sheep that were roaming at will...More

This jewel at Lake Jacomo is a wonderful way of immersing yourself in 1800's Missouri. On any given weekend you can wander, attend a class at a 1 room school, visit a kitchen, see a buffalo and enjoy a wonderful day outdoors. This is what...More

In 2015 it was Oct 3rd and 4th. I think it is always the first weekend in October.

I just wanted to point out that this attraction is actually in Lee's Summit, MO, not Kansas City. Actually it is pretty much mid-way between Blue Springs and Lee's Summit. Is it possible to change the listing?
