    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.

    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.

    What would you like to do outside? Hiking? There are closer opportunities in Kansas than the first answer, which assumes you'll only be in Missouri. For hiking, the fabulous Flint Hills. Go to tnc.org and search on "konza". Read about the trails and these beautiful hills. 120 miles from KC. On the left of the Konza page is a link to the Tallgrass Prairie Preserve, another hiking area within reach. 130 miles from KC. This location has a wonderful 3-story rock barn and smaller rock ranch house. A search online for these will bring you more photos.

    There's some modest whitewater in Arkansas' Ozarks, though the closest big rivers for you are over in Kentucky, including the Cumberland River and Russell Fork of the Big Sandy River (more info at http://gorptravel.away.com/gorptravel/rafting-guide/state-rivers.tcl?id=427562).
