The Arabia Museum and Liberty Memorial both need to be turned over to the Smithsonian before the City and State manage to destroy them!

Their history is irreplaceable, and can't be left in incompetent hands.

^^thanks pops. Run that up the Smithsonian channels and get back to us. Please tell us that your plan to save it includes more than just posting on a blog for geriatrics??? Cause, that would be pretty worthless and a massive waste of time.

I saw the Killers way back when down in the River Market, it was a great venue for a show. Apparently the noise down there during concerts was damaging some of the artifacts, so no more concerts. Maybe they can bring concerts back?

8:03, the Steamboat Arabia museum is privately owned and run, so the city and state won't bother it too much. The article does not say why they want to move, but I suspect it is due to the increasing cost of doing business in City Market. It's a really good museum, I hope they don't move too far away.

The article does say why they want to move. It's a city owned building, the city is jacking the rent up and the city wants to surround it on all sides with bars and restaurants that create possible hazards to the collection. Because KC just does not have enough bars and restaurants.

I hope they come to Independence.

@9:19, read the article - the "why" is, the City is pushing to turn the City Market into some sort of P&L District clone. The most likely plan is to move it to Jefferson City, if the Legislature will get behind the move.

@8:33 thanks for wasting everone's time calling this thread a waste of time. Run along and play now, the people who actually want to say something about this topic are posting.

^^when did anybody on here ever have anything to say??? Hilarious!!!!! Know where your are fucktard! Everybody on here is terrible!

Jefferson City would be a good place for the arabia steamboat museum. Silly that the city chasing bars and restaurants instead of doing minimal effort to retain a treasure like this.

As far as the comment about loud concerts vibrating the museum objects. Maybe so. What I find astonishing is if you go to the Nelson art gallery on their silly 3d Thursday events there is a DJ in the bloch side very near the entrance to the atkins side. I've ran away from the ridiculous low-brow scene and stood in the atrium by the Greek lion, a huge 3,000 year old marble statue held together by nails, and felt the vivrstions from the loud DJ in my chest. They are ruining the nelson art gallery with these lame parties. It's a disaster waiting to happen. Sorry for the rant.

Bring the Mob and the tittie bars back to the Market.
Civella knew how to run a place.
Except when he got pissed and blew it up.

The inside of buildings on east side of city market smell like a waste water treatment plant, why?
