Going to Kansas City

S-- Today we are off to explore a new venue here in KC. Sea Life Aquarium. It is also located in the Crown Center complex. Visitors will see a wild under water world with sharks, starfish, seahorses and stingrays. There is also an underwater tunnel, more than 5,000 sea creatures and a touch pool. There are talks and feeding shows to go to while there. Booking tickets online is highly suggested. Prices are better. :) www.visitsealife.com Our next stop is Starlight Theatre. The theatre opened in June 1951. The 7,947 seat outdoor theatre hosts a variety of Broadway shows and concerts. Shows like Grease, Annie, Mary Poppins and The Adams Family are some of the shows that have come to KC. Starlight is one of three remaining self producing outdoor theatres in the US. Spending an evening at Starlight is one of the bests ways to spend a summer evening. www.kcstarlight.com T-- The next stop on our tour is The Toy and Miniature Museum. Founded by Barbara Marshall. Almost two years ago Ken took me to the museum for my birthday. It is great place to visit! I wanted to see the Barbie exhibit and did I have fun going down memory lane. In this 38 room house located on the UMKC campus visitors will get to see a variety of toys , doll houses LARGE and small, dolls, miniatures, marbles and neat special exhibits. This is a great place for the young and those who feel young to enjoy their child hood again! Children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. www.toyandminiaturemuseum.org
Our last stop today is the 33rd
President's home. Welcome
to The Harry S Truman Home,
located in Independence, Missouri.
This is also my home town and state!
Mr. Truman's family moved to town
in 1890. He met his sweethart Bess
down the street from his house and
next door to his cousin's house. They
went to Sunday school and school
together. Harry and Bess were
married in June 1919 and their
daughter was born in 1924. Both are
buried in the courtyard at the Harry S
Truman Library which is also located
in Independence.
Visitor's to the home will take a guided
tour, on the tour they will see artifacts
from the family and get a glimpse into
their personal lives were like.
Tickets may be purchased at the
Visitor's Center located on the historic
Indep. square. They are available first
come first served.
