There's nothing like learning about medicine of the past to make us grateful for today's doctors. The Glore Psychiatric Museum illustrates how far health care has come by taking guests on a fascinating—and sometimes gruesome—journey into State Lunatic Asylum No. 2, which opened in 1874. Through interactive exhibits and artifacts, the museum, which as been featured on PBS and the Discovery Channel, shows what daily life at the hospital was like over the course of its history. In addition to hospital paraphernalia such as confinement boxes and uniforms, the Glore showcases artwork created by those suffering from mental-health disorders, and includes pottery, paintings, drawings, and needlework.

Thirty-seven years before taking over The Tonight Show from Jack Paar, Johnny Carson was born in a humble one-story home in Corning, Iowa, the county seat of the least populated county in Iowa, on October 23, 1925. After studying radio and speech at the University of Nebraska, he honed his comedic chops writing for Red Skelton before forever reshaping late-night television. The recipient of numerous awards, including a Peabody and Presidential Medal of Freedom, and named the Greatest TV Icon by Entertainment Weekly and TV Land, Johnny remained on The Tonight Show until 1992, when his final episode drew in nearly 50 million viewers. Highlights from his Tonight Show tenure play on a TV inside his family's restored home, where visitors can explore the various rooms of Johnny's childhood.

The Polished Edge Salon's team of experienced stylists sculpts hairdos with artistic precision and enhances treatments with products from top industry brands such as Bed Head, Schwarzkopf, and Paul Mitchell within a softly lit space accented by floor-to-ceiling windows. Following a thorough consultation, mane masters snip and style head threads to match a client's detailed description or a manifestation of their favorite Sunday comic. Delving deep into follicles with reckless abandon, deep-conditioning treatments saturate weary strands with vitality enriching formulas, which allow full highlights to vibrantly accentuate facial features. Appointments may take between one and three hours depending on the package purchased, although complimentary WiFi and recordings of President Roosevelt's fireside chats ensure that clients remain entertained.

In 1986, aviation enthusiasts Dick McMahon and Larry Brown embarked on a mutually shared dream: find and restore a Lockheed Super G Constellation. Long gone from the friendly skies, the “Connie,” as the aircraft is known to aficionados and flirtatious air traffic controllers, was once a sight to behold––a beautiful mix of mechanical power and graceful design. After much sleuthing, the pair managed to locate a 1958 model in Mesa, Arizona, acquire it from the storage facility in which it lived, and transporting it to Hangar 9 at the Kansas City Downtown Airport for refurbishment. Thus was established the National Airline History Museum, a passion project that grew over the ensuing decades to fill three museum rooms with airline artifacts and ephemera. Inside, visitors mine the rich history of commercial flight as they view early photographs and exchange the latest jokes about airline food. They even have the opportunity to walk through several of the aircraft in the hangar, including a 1941 Douglas DC-3 and a 1952 Martin 404 in addition to the famed Lockheed Constellation.
