The Kansas City Museum collects, preserves, and interprets Kansas City’s local and regional history through programs, exhibitions, and events that illuminate and celebrate Kansas City’s past, present, and future. The Museum is located at 3218 Gladstone Blvd. in Kansas City, Missouri’s Historic Northeast community.
The Kansas City Museum is in a planning process for future renovations. During this time, the grounds and only the first floors of Corinthian Hall (mansion) and the Carriage House are open to the public Wednesday-Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
At 10:30 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. Wednesday-Saturday, the Kansas City Museum offers Free Docent-led Tours of the first floors of Corinthian Hall and the Carriage House. These tours begin in the Carriage House. Visitors learn about the history and legacy of the Long family and of the Kansas City Museum.
