    The KC Zoo is AWESOME! My 3 year old loves it, and if you're looking for something a little less pricey and less time-consuming, Deanna Rose Farmstead in Overland Park has free admission and is much smaller and very interactive. There are great picnic areas at both.

    Most of the best caves in this part of the world are a bit further to the southeast, tucked in the karst limestone of the Ozark Mountains. Some of the big guns here are Meramec Cavern near St. Louis, Devils Well near Akers, and Round Spring Cave. (The NPS offers more info about the last two at http://www.nps.gov/ozar/naturescience/cave.htm.) The kids might enjoy a trip to Cave Spring in Kansas City, which offers a small cave and butterfly garden. You could also try Lake of the Ozarks State Park, which offers guided cave tours. Please note, however, that visitors who've been in caves in Eastern states affected white-nose disease are asked not to enter caves in Missouri, which are set to see any cases of the disease that's decimating bat populations throughout the Eastern U.S. and Canada.

    Not sure about the museum, but you could try a "real" speakeasy in the shape of Firefly Lounge in Westport (http://blogs.pitch.com/fatcity/2008/12/now_open_firefly_loungemodern.php). The Blue Room at the American Jazz Museum might be another good place to get your Prohibition-era swing on.
