START HERE: Some places put out a dusty old rack of brochures and call themselves a visitor’s center. That just doesn't cut it here in Independence. Housed in the Historic Truman Courthouse, the Independence Visitor Experience Center is a modern day mecca of free information, free wi-fi, free coffee and free-flowing conversation. We really know how to roll out the welcome wagon. So stop by, get the lay of the land and have a cup of Joe on us."
