KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- A new, local museum wants to mess with your mind.

Called the Museum of Illusions, it is located inside Union Station and filled with dozens of mind tricks.

This is only the second such museum in the United States - the other is in New York.

In one room, visitors stand on one end and look like a giant while the person on the other end looks tiny. There are slanted floors and mirrors and moving tunnels - all meant to trick your mind and even make you dizzy.

It is also educational, teaching kids about the power of the mind.

"It's different than any museum in Kansas City," Director Alex Doroskovs said. "You can actually do things you wouldn't be allowed to do at other museums. How so? You can run around, have fun, laugh, scream. Do anything you want. Just please don't damage the exhibits."

The Museum of Illusions opens Friday inside Union Station.

The cost is $10 for kids, $15 for adults and free for kids under five.

Home: Events, Reminders, Birthdays

ELA: This page will keep you informed on the skill your child is learning in English Language Arts. You will see the Genre we focus on as well as the Essential Question. This question is the topic for all our reading stories, including the weekly tests. You will also see anchor charts to describe the comprehension skill and reading strategy of the week. Many times, you will find games that correlate to these skills for your child to practice before our test on Fridays.

Math: This page will tell you the skill for each day of the week, whether or not we have homework on a particular day, and a game to practice each day's skill. You will also find test study guides here if we are reviewing for an upcoming test. This is also the page you will go if you need to print another copy of homework and check the Student Reference Book for homework help.

Science: Here you will see a short blurb about the current science unit your child is studying. There will be a picture, video, or handout that you can look at in order to get a better idea of the project. If materials are needed from home for a particular project, you will see that here as well.

Social Studies: This will be formatted the same as science. You will find the current unit of study for social studies, videos, and handouts the kids receive in class.

Websites: Here you will find the websites we use in class and how the kids can access them at home.

Photo Gallery: We will post pictures of students, their projects, special events and field trips.
