About Arabia Steamboat Museum, Kansas City

This unique Museum is dedicated to the Arabia steamboat loaded with cargo that sank just the north of Kansas City in 1856. With a Cargo full of fine dishware, clothing and bottled food, this ship was not discovered until 1988 and was buried beneath a Kansas cornfield. When the river Missouri changed its course, this ship was found by adventurous group and astonishingly, all the cargo was in remarkably perfect condition.

Since then, this place is known as Arabia steamboat museum displaying the contents of the cargo and the pictures and paintings related to the incident.

A perfect place to visit with family.

  • My mother, brother, and I flew to Kansas City just to go to this museum. Was it worth the trip? ABSOLUTELY! If you are fascinated by these types of finds and historical events, this place is for you. The staff was simply wonderful, the gift shop was fun, but the artifacts-- they will simply amaze you! I had always doubted that they had sun glasses back then until the staff member who was giving us the tour showed me a pair! They are right here in this photo.

  • Very enlightening and engaging. many artifacts and buried treasures to discover here. the one downside. seemed VERY similar to THE CURSE OF OAK ISLAND, even the one dig member who welcomed guests, CLEARLY wanted to distance himself from OAK ISLAND. odd.

  • Awesome place of immense historical information. Been multiple times, enjoy taking guest, always see something I missed before. The book, "Treasure in a Cornfield" by Greg Hawley is well written and delightful read of a family adventure! One of the area's Own 'treasures '!

  • Really cool museum. The tour is very informative and thought provoking. Seeing what was able to be salavaged from a steamboat in the 1980's that sank before the Civil War is very interesting to see. They have yet to put everything out that they have excavated so the collection keeps growing. The amount of information that you can see and hear from this museum gives you a closer look as to what it took to live during the pioneer days of the United States.

  • I haven't been here yet..maybe one day. But I've heard it's awesome and the items are nice! Have a blessed day and loves you all! Asalaam ☮️ peace
