Steamboat Arabia Museum


This morning John and I went back to the Steamboat Arabia Museum to take the tour and look at the artifacts. This museum was recommended to us by a friend of ours in California, and we are so glad she reminded us about it. I have to say that this is the most impressive set of artifacts I’ve ever seen from the 1800s.

We spent about an hour and a half in the museum and John took a number of photos, which I’m posting on the Albums page of this web site. I’m sure John will be cleaning up some of the photos, but I just wanted to share them with everyone now.

Wow, what a great find. I’m so glad the people who discovered the steamboat decided to keep the artifacts together in a single collection. Adult tickets cost $12.50 each and even though it sounds expensive, it is well worth the price.

Check out the Steamboat Arabia Museum and the next time you are in Kansas City, take 2 hours out of your trip to see this for yourself.
