  • Bring a set of good headphones with you if you can, a lot of the ones they have here don't work well.
  • Every Friday they do Jazz Storytime. It was amazing! The music and singing was so much fun and the kids loved it!
  • This isn't just a museum, they have displays that teach you about jazz and give insight on what it's like being a musician. It also has a bar in the back with live jazz music.
  • It is a little small but the joy is in the interactive displays that give you better insight into the development of jazz. They also have a great display of "soundies" which are short movies of swing music.
  • Wow, what an amazing experience! Such a gem right here in KC. A must do for locals and tourists.
