Love! A great asset to the downtown community. I came here with my 16 month old and husband to get out of the 100° weather one June afternoon. I appreciated the various galleries explaining local artists and history. The kids area is fantastic, too! Lots of toys, books, friendly employees, and a space for kids to be kids. Make sure to get the parking validation for 1 hour free on weekdays or free on weekends!

This is one awesome place... I would have to say "The Best in Kansas City"... It is so unique and brilliantly stunning... The building is ancient... Very old... Talk about historical... This would be one of those places.. Its massively huge... And the vault has been turned into a splendid little theater where movie's both old and new are played...both in the afternoon as well as evening... They offer a huge selection of DVD'S if that's your thing.. Which I love because I can get every old movie from the 40' s and earlier if so inclined... They even have an outside rooftop to view the city with a huge chessboard to play chess.. They offer so many different kinds of programs... Well worth visiting... For parking they validate 1 hour free... After that its $1 for another 20 minutes...there's also coin parking on the street if your lucky that is... 💘 it!

I love going to this library. They have quite a few KC exhibits to check out, and a movie theater in the old vault in the basement. The rooftop guide of the skyline is one of my favorite things to show people from out of town. It's peaceful, has great places to study/work, and a tasty coffee shop!

We visited every floor, I had so much fun. The underground vault mini theatre is so cute. They show movies on Saturdays.

One of the must visit places in Kansas City. There is museum inside it too. There is also good play place for kids. You may go to top floor by using elevator, and see the downtown from there.
