Youth Drop-in Days provide a hands-on learning experience for your child at a time when school might look a bit different for them. Families work together to move through three stations on a featured topic with a different activity at each station. Topics and activities have been specifically curated to encourage critical thinking and to fit in with Kansas and Missouri social studies curriculum. Drop-in Days are ideal for grades three through seven, although all are welcome.

Location: Alexander Majors Barn (8201 State Line Rd., KCMO)
Time: Drop in any time between 1:00-4:00 PM – expect to spend 45 minutes to an hour on site
Cost: $5/child, with a $10 maximum cost per family (Parents and kids 5 and under free)

Walk-ins welcome and registration is not required! If you’d like to pre-register for a contact-free check-in experience, register here.
