The largest municipality in Missouri, Kansas City has an impressive array of world-class museums, shopping areas, and great places to eat, all of which attract tourism to the area.
Brown v. Board of Education National Historic Site and The Stone Church will appeal to history buffs. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Pony Express Museum and Glore Psychiatric Museum. Change things up with these side-trips from Kansas City: Walt Disney Hometown Museum (in Marceline), Topeka (Evel Knievel Museum & Museum of History) and Jesse James Birthplace Museum (in Kearney). There's still lots to do: take an in-depth tour of National WWI Museum and Memorial, examine the collection at The Money Museum, contemplate the long history of Bothwell Lodge State Historic Site, and get lost in a book at Harry S. Truman Library and Museum.

May in Kansas City sees daily highs of 76°F and lows of 57°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 5th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
