PUBLIC OPEN HOUSE
Wednesday, March 29
5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
Corinthian Hall
Free | No RSVP Required

Join us at the Kansas City Museum in Corinthian Hall (the mansion) for a public Open House event that will take place from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, March 29.

From 5:30 to 6:00 PM in the Grand Hall of the mansion, Kansas City Museum Executive Director Anna Marie Tutera, Director of Collections and Curatorial Services Denise Morrison, and City Architect Eric Bosch, AIA, will give an overview of the Museum’s Visitor Experience Plan created by Gallagher & Associates.

From 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. the public will visit rooms on the first floor of the mansion where they are welcome to review floor plans and renderings while talking with renovation project team members—including International Architects Atelier, JE Dunn Construction Co., Kansas City Museum staff, and Parks and Recreation Leadership—about the architectural design process for the restoration and renovation of Corinthian Hall.

Open House attendees will see how the Visitor Experience Plan focuses on the core stories of the visitor experience for Corinthian Hall. These stories address the history and development of Kansas City and outline the parameters for developing interpretive exhibitions and experiences in the mansion that feature the Museum’s historical collection. Attendees will view detailed floor plans and conceptual architectural renderings to understand how future visitors to the Kansas City Museum will experience these core stories that interpret and celebrate Kansas City’s past, present, and future.

Event attendees will have the opportunity to participate in an interactive video being produced by Brainroot Light and Sound.

Additional important project updates will include information on #MakingAMuseumKC, an innovative fundraising initiative launched by the Kansas City Museum Foundation to support the Kansas City Museum’s renovation project.

Light refreshments will be provided. Parking, including accessible parking, will be available in the Museum’s parking lot, with street parking that is also available.
