  • Such a fun experience! Great for all ages. There are gravel paths so keep that in mind for strollers. Smaller, pop up strollers don't do well.
  • An awesome historic place that is amazing at historical preservation and educating the public! A must see place for you and the family!
  • Really beautiful place to walk around and/or take photos. Love the history and the upkeep. Seeing the bison is exciting as well!
  • This was a favorite place to visit when I lived in the Liberty, MO area. I've never been to Shoal Creek when the museum buildings were open to the public (during reenactments) however, it is still worth visiting. The history lessons, the scenery and the nearby Bison are all worth taking in.
  • Great place to take kids. I have taken my kids several times and they love it. I brought some out of town friends there to view the 2017 Eclipse and everyone had a blast.
