With Free Tours in Kansas City, you will discover the best jewels of a city that is increasingly appearing on the bucket list of seasoned travelers. The must-see attraction in the city is the National World War I Memorial and Museum.

To explore the more artistic side of the city, we recommend joining Kansas City Free Walking Tours and paying a visit to the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art.
