Hallmark’s Visitors Center
Visiting the Hallmark Visitor’s Center in Kansas City Missouri
One of the best attractions in the visitor’s center is the automatic bow making machine! One push of a button and your very own miniature bow pops out of the machine. A BIG hit with the kids!!

NORMAN ROCKWELL and HALLMARK
There is a long history of Norman Rockwell and Hallmark.
Rockwell was a favorite of Hallmark founder, J.C. Hall.
J.C. Hall contacted the artist about creating some images for greeting cards and a flourishing business relationship (and lasting friendship) began.
The materials cover the period 1948-57 and include oils, watercolors and pencil drawings as well as photographs, vintage Hallmark cards and correspondence with Hall. The images are from the Hallmark Art Collection and were created for use on Hallmark Christmas cards and other products.
And for the Christmas enjoyment of everyone, Hallmark opened the Rockwell vault! On display were over 50 Rockwell originals!!
And of course the best know Kansas City Norman Rockwell Painting is the iconic
“The Kansas City Spirit”
Norman Rockwell’s Christmas Homecoming
AND many, many more Norman Rockwells
And of course while you are there you can see the Hallmark Employee Christmas Trees. (The J.C. Hall Christmas Tree Collection—17 unique trees created by Hallmark employees as gifts for the company’s founder.)
