Kansas City isn’t just famous for its barbecues, art and jazz; there are plenty of things to do and places to visit. Here’s a list of fun things to do when visiting the place with family:

- Visit the National War Museum:

The National War Museum is America’s official museum dedicated to the First World War that killed more than 9 million people and maimed several more. This is a great place to help tweens and teens to appreciate peace and understand the futility of war. It is a well curated museum with interesting exhibits that include artifacts related to the war including war tanks, airplanes, and dioramas of German, French and British bunkers. There are plenty of interactive games where children and adults can create war posters or learn about airplanes.

Spoiler Alert: Children 12 and under are likely to be bored

- Visit Sea Life Kansas City Aquarium

The Sea Life Aquarium in Kansas City has more than 5000 water creatures including sharks, octopuses, sea horses and several other animals swimming around 260,000 gallons of water. This is a kid friendly place with a touch pool and several talk and feed shows held throughout the day.

Spoiler Alert: Can be crowded sometimes, although staff tries to control the number of people who go in.

- The Schlitterbahn Kansas City Water Park

This water theme park is the latest addition to the city’s entertainment scene. The Verruckt water slide, supposedly said to hold the current record for being the tallest and fastest in the world, is set to launch soon. There are slides and water rides including an interconnected river system that allows people of all ages to take a floating trip inside the water park.

Spoiler Alert: The official launch date for Verruckt has been delayed thrice and no new launch date has been set yet.

- LEGOLAND Discovery Center

The Kansas City LEGOLAND Discovery Center is the fourth discovery center is the US. The 30,000 square foot place has several interactive features that appeal everyone in the family especially little kids. There’s a Barbie house for children to play besides Lego pools randomly placed for children to stop and build something.

Spoiler Alert: Not a place that teens would find interesting. Adults are not allowed unless accompanied by children or during the ‘adults only’ nights held every third Monday of each month.

- Kansas City Zoo

The zoo is spread around 200 acres of land and hosts thousands of exotic animals. Popular exhibits include polar bears, penguins, elephants and giraffes. You can also take an air ride across some of the animals.

Spoiler Alert: Not much fun if you aren’t a great fan of animals.
