I'm so glad that we visited the Hallmark Visitors Center prior to going into Crown Center. In the movie about J.C. Hall and his family, his generosity and devotion to Kansas CIty was talked about. It was his vision and his family's dedication to the city that led to the development of Crown Center. We didn't walk around much of... More

This center in Kansas City is the best!! All ages have something to do! Marvelous restaurants with great shopping! Parking is very convenient - paid for by just a stamp from one of the stores.

I go there often and the hotel lobby, Halls and the Pen Place are among my favorites. But this time, I also visited the Missing Piece (fun hat shop) and watched the children in the shopping center's lobby having fun with a Lego's competition.

Great place to spend an entire day, especially with kids of childminded people! If you have an opportunity, visit this place both during summer and winter, because this place changes with the seasons.

Crown Center offers a variety of great experiences for travelers and residents. Kids can go to Leggo Land or the aquarium, and adults can enjoy some unique shopping experiences. Some specialty stores offer products you can't find anywhere else. Visitors can also enjoy quite an array of food options for breakfast, lunch, and dinner--a wide range of options and everything...

The Crown Center really is cool. I'm glad we took the time to walk over from Union Station. The enclosed skywalks made the walk warm, traffic free and quick. The Crown Center is essentially a mall surrounded by nice fountains, parks and hotels. It's beautiful to see. Inside the Crown Plaza there are three levels of stores and restaurants. Most... More

I went to Crown Center expecting much more to see. Last time I was there it seemed much bigger, but it is now mostly eateries and support stores for the hotels and the 2 attractions. I am sure the attractions are nice, but at our age with no grandkids, they are not much of a draw. Not much of a... More

Fun shopping center. Always have to get fudge and look at the Holiday shop. Toy store always has unique gifts. Also enjoy the kitchen store.

Crown center is a nice place to visit in the winter time. There are a lot of interesting stores and restaurants. However, they are not your usual mall stores so do not come here if you are looking to do real shopping because it is more of a place that is just fun to look around. The ice skating on... More
