the Visit Neighboring States Series
I have said it before, Kansas City offers more attractions and fun for families with children than in any other major city within a three hour drive from central Iowa! TripAdvisor list 26 museums in KC.
The Money Museum was a fun and educational stop. We took a self guided tour and spent around 45 minutes enjoying the exhibits.

There are several hands-on activities for younger students. The museum is not large but the exhibits are full of information. Older students could use the displays for research projects.
There are guided tours for larger groups which need to be reserved fifteen days in advance. I overheard one tour guide and he sounded very knowledgeable. I would like to bring my children back to the Money Museum in Kansas City again when they are older.
