    »Arabia Steamboat Museum

    Located along Grand Boulevard in downtown Kansas City, the Arabia Steamboat Museum recounts the story of the Arabia, a steamboat that sank in 1886 when a walnut tree created a hole in the hull. When it sank, there were only parts and pieces that could be salvaged, however these remnants and artifacts are now displayed here. The museum claims to have the largest amount of pre-Civil War artifacts in the entire world and judging by the collection, we can assume its true. It is a great museum for all ages and with captivate adults as well as children alike.
