Kansas City Musuem Review

Location: 3218 Gladstone, Kansas City

Cost: Free, for now


Review: This was going to be awesome. It should have been awesome. Everything about it screamed awesome. But it's not, don't go.

This is why: The main musuem is closed and will be for the next 3 to 7 years. That's right, 3 to 7 years, maybe less if it gets out for good behavior.

Here's the deal. The website proclaims that the Corrinthan hall is closed but states that admission is free for the other things. Having never been there, I thought we would get to check out the actual musuem. However, it appears that the Hall is the musuem. I thought that the website was misleading and there were other things to do there. There's not. They direct you to the Visitors Center, which is really the gift shop. They say that there are things to see there, but there's not. There are a few plaques on the wall next to the T-shirts but thats it. You can't even walk the grounds. You have to walk around on the outside.

But in it's defense, the mansion that is the actual musuem is freaking awesome and I'm sure that when my kids are teenagers they can't wait to go with me. If you do go though, there are some really cool houses around it. Historic stuff but people are living there so you can't actually tour them. So we just played in thier front yards. That's right, we're rebels. Take that bad website! We're fucking with your neighbors, see how they like you now.

Well, we actually just played on the sidewalk in front of thier houses. But I spit on the street, so take that!

All in all, this one was a bust. Skip it.

Playgroup, June 3

What does around 20 dads and kids do to a house? Take a gander and show respect for the awesome destruction that our children can create. Shock and awe baby, shock and awe.

How did 20 people eat with 4 chairs? It's the whole feed a thousand people with one fish kind of thing. I can't explain it, you have to take it on faith. That's right, just like Jesus.

8 pizza's, 1 full box of Mac N Cheese, 1 carton to strawberries, 3 pounds of grapes and 21 juice boxes. And this is all that is left.

And they huffed and the puffed, and they tore the ever loving shit out of the cardboard house.

Keep in mind that this is AFTER pickup. Also the scene of the famous "NO! It MINE! MINE! MINE!

Just for a recap, as you can tell, we had a great turnout. Now that summer is here some of the preschool kids are getting back into the swing of things which is always awesome. All dads were promptly able to ignore thier children and talk about important things, like the KC Royals and LOST.
