Did you know some of Kansas City’s top attractions offer unique behind-the-scenes views of their operations? These tours include fascinating facts about the venue as well as peeks into places not generally seen by the public.

Adventures not to be missed include:

Kauffman Stadium

Often called the “K” by locals, Kauffman Stadium is named for Ewing Kauffman, founder of the Kansas City Royals. The stadium is known as one of the crown jewel ballparks of Major League Baseball. In fact, it’s hosted over 89,497,353 fans since 1973!

The Grand Slam Tour is offered several times a month at 10:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. The guide will discuss the Royals’ history while taking everyone to the View Level Overlook, Cboe Crown Club, and Konica Minolta Diamond Club. 

Kansas City Zoo

The Kansas City Zoo opened in 1909 with four lions, three monkeys, and a handful of other animals. Today, it features world-class exhibits and strives to connect people and the natural world to promote understanding and conservation. The zoo was named the best attraction of its type in 2008, and has also been recognized for its chimpanzee habitat. 

Interested in enjoying the zoo in a whole new way? Then grab a flashlight and take a twilight tour. This behind-the-scenes experience includes seeing the zoo’s nocturnal inhabitants between 7:00 p.m and 9:00 p.m.

Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts 

The Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts strives to enhance the lives of everyone in our community through extraordinary performing arts experiences. Since opening, more than 2.5 million people have walked through the doors.

The guided tour takes visitors through the center and provides a historic overview of the center’s development while highlighting the building’s architectural accomplishments.
