Looking for fun? Look no further than the Crown Center District. It’s home to attractions like the SEA LIFE Kansas City Aquarium, LEGOLAND® Discovery Center, The Coterie Theatre, Hallmark Visitors Center, Kaleidoscope and more. Across the street you’ll find Kansas City’s Union Station, home to Science City and traveling exhibits. And just up the hill are the National WWI Museum and Memorial – one of the country’s most spectacular museums – and The Money Museum at The Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City. There are so many things to do, you could stay for days. Good thing you we make it easy – there are two hotels right at Crown Center! Both within steps of all there is to do.
We will not be hosting our annual Fall Homeschool Week in 2021. However, some of the District partners are hosting their own activities. We will list them here as they are shared with us:
National WWI Museum and Memorial
Whether you are schooling at home, homeschooling or just looking for a reason to get out of the house with kids, the National WWI Museum and Memorial is here for you. We are pleased to expand our annual “Homeschool Week” discount all month long (October) for any student 18 and under. A discounted rate of $6 provides ticketed access to all gallery areas of the Museum and Memorial along with a free National WWI Museum and Memorial Family Guide. Please be advised all students under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

This October, the Money Museum is celebrating Homeschool Month and Economic Education Month. Check out our new video series, Everyday Economics that follows economists at the Kansas City Fed as they explore how economics impacts our everyday lives. We are also featuring resource lists for elementary, middle school and high school students curated by our economic education team. You can find our Economic Education and Homeschool Month resources on our website at https://www.kansascityfed.org/moneymuseum/.
