|Visit two recently-renovated Kansas City-area museums during 50 Plus day trip on Oct. 28|
Two recently-renovated Kansas City area museums are the destinations for a late October day trip being offered by the 50 Plus Department of the Johnson County Park & Recreation District.
Museum Makeovers is the name of this trip. Participants will visit the recently-reopened National Museum of Toys and Miniatures where they will see their $8 million in renovations, which included the addition of new exhibits, interactive experiences, and a two-story toy sculpture. Travelers will break into small groups for a personal tour of the world’s largest collection of antique toys and remarkable fine-scale miniatures. After lunch at Andre’s Confiserie Suisse, we'll check out what’s happening at the Kansas City Museum at Corinthian Hall and take a hard hat tour to learn about the extensive restoration of the estate site and find out what makes it an important museum of local and regional history.
