Description

The Arabia Steamboat Museum is a unique Kansas City attraction: a time capsule of life on the American frontier in the mid-19th century. Visitors have a one-of-a-kind opportunity to experience everyday objects that made life possible for pioneers in the 1800s.

Voted Favorite Kansas City Hidden Gem by Visit KC, the museum is one of Kansas City's most popular attractions. It is the world's largest single collection of pre-Civil War artifacts, featured by National Geographic Traveler, Smithsonian Magazine, PBS, Antiques Roadshow, Good Morning America, Southern Living, CNN, the History Channel and many other news and entertainment organizations.


The Steamboat Arabia was one of many casualties of the perilous Missouri River the longest river in the United States that claimed nearly 400 other steamboats over its 2,500-mile course. In September 1856, Arabia was carrying over 200 tons of cargo intended for general stores and homes in 16 midwestern frontier towns. The steamer was still fully loaded when it hit a tree snag and sank just 6 miles west of Kansas City. Due to erosion, the Missouri River changed course over time, and Arabia was buried underground for over a century along with all of its precious cargo. Lying 45 feet deep beneath a Kansas cornfield, Arabia's payload was protected from light and oxygen and, thus, was remarkably well preserved.
