Activities for Kids in Kansas City

A treasure hunt for hidden gems

Aspiring geologists, rock hounds and Gold Rush history buffs will love this wildly fun treasure hunt! It's a great activity for kids in Kansas City. You'll unearth an array of spectacular gems and experience an

unforgettable adventure that could inspire a future career or ignite a lifelong hobby. Use the field guide to identify your treasures to complete the educational fun.

What makes ours different?

Most months of the year, our guests enjoy our outdoor panning stream for this adventure. It's a replica of a stream with flowing water, and we provide tools for

you to strain the sand just like the 1800’s gold seekers did. In winter, the experience is indoors more like a mini buried treasure experience.
