Discover the treasures of the Steamboat Arabia.  Journey back to 1856, America's Golden Age of steam boating, when the Great White Arabia sank in the Missouri River.  Her excavation in 1988 uncovered a "time capsule" of remarkably preserved 1856 frontier supplies including jewelry, china, cookware, clothing, and food.  This international cargo is the largest collection of pre-Civil War artifacts in existence, and the display keeps growing!

Enjoy lunch on your own at the museum’s cafe, or at the adjacent City Market.  This historic area features a farmer's market, as well as gift shops, restaurants, and galleries.

Ranked the number one attraction in Kansas City and the fifth best museum in the United States, the National World War I Museum and Memorial has been called a “national treasure”. Steeped in history, the National World War I Museum and Memorial is America’s only museum dedicated to sharing the stories of the Great War through the eyes of those who lived it. We will arrive at the museum and begin with a brief memorial service outside of Liberty Memorial Tower, which rises 217 feet above the main courtyard. After the Memorial Service, enjoy free time to tour the museum at your own pace. In the museum you’ll enjoy interactive displays, thought-provoking films and eyewitness testimonies, while receiving a narrated tour of the largest collection of WWI artifacts in the world. Following the tour, grab your boxed lunch from the “Over There CafĂ©”.

Kansas City is known as the City of Fountains. See why as we make our way through the area.  Some points of interest include Lewis and Clark Point, Union Station, and the Liberty Memorial, the only memorial dedicated to those who served in World War I.  A new addition to the downtown area is the Kauffman Performing Arts Center, much like the Opera House in Australia.  Also enjoy Kauffman Gardens.
