About Kansas City
Kansas City is not one of the most famous US cities, but this does not make it any less beautiful.
Kansas City is in the State of Missouri and has a population of about 450,000. The city was founded by fur traders in 1820 and is still an important commercial centre. The cityscape is dominated by high-rise buildings. The city has few historic buildings.
Kansas City has a great deal to offer culture-lovers. It has a number of important museums, including the Kansas City Regional Historical Museum, which has a magnificent collection of Native American art. The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art is certainly also worth a visit. There are also a large number of theatres, a philharmonic orchestra and a number of well-known libraries.
