Things to do around Arabia Museum on a Thursday?

I am coming into KC the first part of October...on a Thursday. Hope to tour the Arabia Steamboat Museum. Are there other sites around the area that would make up a day for us? Also, any free parking around?

Up until a few weeks ago, there was free parking right by the Arabia. You will still find it just a couple of blocks away.

The immediate area has many interesting ethnic restaurants.

The Arabia is located in the northern part of Downtown in the City Market. In the southern part of Downtown (only 10 to 15 minutes by car) is the World War I Museum and Memorial. If you don't prefer to drive, you can easily reach both the Arabia and the WWI Museum using the city's new streetcar system. The streetcars make a huge loop around Downtown and will drop you off practically on the front doorstep of both museums.
