The Kansas City Museum vision is a hub of learning, creativity, and collaboration where individuals and communities innovate and inspire engagement and civic unity.
The Kansas City Museum preserves, interprets, and celebrates Kansas City through collections, exhibitions, and bold programs that reflect the City’s evolution and spirit, and engage visitors in unfolding stories about Kansas City’s vibrant history, cultural heritage, and pride.
The Kansas City Museum also operates and manages the Historic Garment District Museum of Kansas City, located in the heart of the old Garment District, in DST’s Poindexter building at 801 Broadway Blvd. between 6th and 11th streets and Washington and Wyandotte streets. Admission to the Historic Garment District Museum is FREE. Street parking is available.
Historic Garment District Museum Hours: Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
The Kansas City Museum is closed temporarily for regular weekly hours because Corinthian Hall (the mansion) is being prepared for construction. The extensive renovation project will create a leading-edge, 21st-century museum of Kansas City’s history and cultural heritage.
While the Kansas City Museum will not be open to the public for regular weekly hours, the Museum will continue to host special off-site exhibitions in the community as well as on-site programs and events using the Museum’s grounds.
