BEGINNING SOON: Construction to restore and renovate Corinthian Hall
Join us for a very special ceremony to celebrate the commencement of construction at the Kansas City Museum: 9:30-10:30 a.m. on Tuesday, October 10, 2017 on the historic grounds of the Kansas City Museum.
Members and supporters of the Kansas City Museum restoration and renovation project are invited to attend a special ceremony to celebrate the beginning of construction. This initial stage of construction includes restoring and renovating Corinthian Hall (lower level, first floor, second floor, and third floor of the mansion), and it kicks off the first of several stages that will create a leading-edge, 21st-century museum of Kansas City’s history and cultural heritage.
The event will celebrate the completion of more than two years of design preparation led by International Architects Atelier, the architectural design firm for the project.
This special ceremony also will recognize the start of the work of JE Dunn Construction Co., the project’s construction manager, which is beginning work in October to add exhibition galleries and amenities to the Museum that include:
- Museum Café and Demonstration Kitchen
- Soda Fountain
- Billiards Room
- Museum Retail Store
- Theater / Auditorium
- Classroom and Meeting Room
Funding for the Kansas City Museum restoration and renovation project is provided by GO KC Bonds, as approved by voters on April 4, 2017, and the Museum Levy. In addition, the Kansas City Museum Foundation has launched Making A Museum KC (#MakingAMuseumKC), a fundraising initiative and capital campaign to raise private funds in support of the Museum’s expansive renovation project.
