We were looking forward to coming here. This was actually part of the reason for coming to Kansas City. This place has very limited hours, and then isn't even open when it should be. Complete waste of time. Also can't believe the garbage outside.

The Battle of Westport was a significant event, and is largely experienced by following a series of historical markers around the Kansas City area. Good for Civil War buffs.

It might help you to read about this battle prior to you walking the trail. You will "get it" better. Nice scenery and information stations. We loved it and as a War Between The States buff, I truly thought it did a nice job! If...More

A walking tour on your own is available with information posted on the trails. Not much to see, so it helps if you are able to put yourself back in history and use your imagination.
