Shop until you drop at Crown Center, one of the city's largest retail centers featuring a variety of big-name stores and restaurants.

Grab a bite to eat at one of the many on-site dining establishments, ranging from burger joints to gourmet eateries. You can even stop in for a live show at the theater, or view the world headquarters of the famous Hallmark Card Company, which offers a free visitor center. Families with kids won't want to miss Kaleidoscope, a creative wonderland where kids can paint, draw, make puzzles, and more--also for free.

  • Several shops and places to eat. Beautiful center worth a visit. Parking garage attached for easy access close to legoland and aquarium. Across the street. 
  • Crown Center is full of fun. Shows, shops, and restaurants! Relax and enjoy all that is offered under one roof! 
  • This is an awesome mall. In March for St. Patrick's Day, they colored the fountain in the front of the building green! Inside the mall, there are stores like the Crayola store, a chocolate factory store, and a store where Russian icons are sold. In front of the mall, there is even an ice rink!!! Some stores there are not family friendly, but overall it's an awesome place to visit!
  • I only gave 3 because there was some construction going on and my wife was frustrated by the confusing parking garage. My daughters enjoyed the crayola store and having their food delivered to them by trains. I enjoyed all the pokestops and the massive nest of pokemon that I caught. Zubats and a Pikachu.
  • Crown Center has some unique shopping options. Good place to go when shopping for a gift for someone who has everything. Great place to take little kids for free entertainment! The temporary children's exhibits are always worth a stop. Hit Kaleidoscope and Hallmark Visitors Center with kids as well. We always stop at Sheridan's for delicious frozen custard. Walk across the walkways to Union Station and take the free streetcar to the City Market and back!
  • Have been going to crown center for years and years. Great shopping, fun culture, yummy food. Lots to do in the immediate area and now you can even catch the streetcar from a short distance over at union station to explore even more of the city.
  • I had alot of fun. The shops are fun to shop at. There were alot of kids...everywhere. its not a bad thing just loud and alot of kids.
