Plan Your Visit

Kaleidoscope is temporarily closed in response to the COVID-19 situation. The health and safety of our employees, guests and neighboring communities are our top priority. We continue to monitor the situation and will re-open when it is appropriate.

Kaleidoscope nourishes the creative spirit.  It is a place where children and their families are invited to be creative, have fun and feel good about their own special ideas.  Provided by Hallmark, Kaleidoscope is FREE!

Children use their imaginations to make art with materials from Hallmark’s manufacturing processes. Some are cut into shapes, while others are left just as Hallmark sends them.  And Hallmark provides different materials so the projects are ever-changing!

Walk-in Art Sessions

These free sessions offer children the chance to stretch their creative muscles making their own amazing art!
Children of all ages and their adults are welcome to create art together at free 50-minute art sessions.

All children must be accompanied by an adult and all adults must be accompanied by a child.  We require a minimum of one adult for every 6 children in your group. Whenever you visit with a group of less than 15 people, please plan to arrive earlier than the start of your preferred session time to pick up free tickets. Reservations are not accepted for families or groups unless you have 15 or more people. Tickets are free, but space is limited.

Groups of 15 or more people are required to make a reservation.  If you have a group of 15 or more, call 816-274-8301 to check for availability and make a reservation.
