Dear Friends of the Kansas City Museum,

The health and wellness of our patrons, staff, and community is always a top priority at the Kansas City Museum. As our City begins to reopen, we are planning the following:

• The Kansas City Museum at the Historic Garment District and the Historic Garment District Museum (800 and 801 Broadway locations) will be closed to the public until the Parks and Recreation Department moves into Phase 3 of the Re-opening Plan.

• Public programs and in-person meetings will not be permitted until Phase 3 of the Re-Opening Plan.

• The annual Derby Party hosted by the Kansas City Museum Foundation is rescheduled from Saturday, May 2, 2020 to Saturday, September 5, 2020. If you have questions about the Derby Party, please contact Programs Director Paul Gutierrez at paul.gutierrez@kcmo.org.

As guidance and recommendations continue to change, our plans will be evaluated and updated. Stay safe and be well.
