Quirky Tourist Attractions in or near Missouri
While in Missouri, you might enjoy a visit to:
Tribute to Michael Wheeler, senior citizen, who dresses in a home-made super-suit and runs all over Kansas City.
A curious underground museum, safe from any Zeppelin attack. Opened in late 2006, a bit late for most WWI vets. Has a replica trench and a 100-foot-long recreation of "No Man's Land."
A house of the future circa 1954: hidden TV, electric curtain openers, and central control panel for "moon glow" lighting. Originally at 4602 Homestead Drive in Prairie Village; moved to its current spot and reopened in June 2017.
Anti-booze crusader Carry Nation is buried in the Belton cemetery, and artifacts are displayed in a one-room museum. Bonus: the hearse that carried Carry!
