Use the supplies to create collages, puzzles, mobiles, and various other artistic works. The center provides glue, pens, glitter, and much more, so all you need to bring is your ideas. This crafty fun takes place in organized sessions, so make sure to check for times beforehand. Admission is free.  Plan to visit Kaleidoscope and other customer-reviewed, writer-recommended Kansas City attractions using our Kansas City vacation generator.

  • I came here as a child and it is still amazing! Was able to bring my child and spouse and it's all free. The staff and atmosphere are out of this world and the Dr. Seuss decor is so fun and inviting for children of all ages. Parents can go in with their children or peer in through mirrored glass. Go early as you might want to attend a second session. Highly recommend!
  • It's always fun to take your kids to experience something that you did when you were a child and they loved it just as much as I did.
  • Such fond memories of this place from my childhood, and thrilled to see my kids have a blast during a visit back to the home town! A must-see if you're in town with kids!
  • I would recommend Kaleidscope for kids 4+ . I took my children and niece and the younger kids(2 and under) didn't really know what to do. They had a good time running and looking at all the sculptures and coloring though but the older kids were more enthused creatively.
  • Good place to take the kids and kill time. Free, so budget friendly.
