This month’s Southtown Business Highlight is the UMKC Innovation Center at 4747 Troost Ave. helping emerging/existing business owners develop business basics. Created in 2005 by bringing together university business outreach services, each year the Center serves more than 3,000 clients, through training classes, one-on-one counseling sessions, and referrals to other support
The National Museum of Toys and Miniatures, previously the Toy and Miniature Museum of KC, plans to re-open in 2015 with a new ‘look’. The new lobby will feature a sculpture called the “Toytisserie”, a two-story conveyor belt composed of 48 panels covered in toys, which will stimulate wonder and nostalgia for all! As you might imagine, LOTS of toys are needed to pull this sculpture off!
