About the Museum

Welcome to the Kansas City Museum at Corinthian Hall. The Kansas City Museum is Kansas City’s first, and most important, museum of local and regional history.

The museum is housed at the former urban estate of lumber baron and civic leader Robert A. Long and his family. The 3 acre plot is located atop a bluff overlooking the Missouri River Valley, adjacent to historic Kessler Park and Cliff Drive, a state Scenic By-way. The site features five of the six original structures. These include Corinthian Hall, the 70-room four-story Beaux Arts limestone residence; the Carriage House, in which Long’s famed equestrienne daughter, Loula Long Combs, housed her horses and many trophies; the StoryTarium in the former Conservatory, the Gatehouse, the Museum's administrative offices, and the Carpenter's shed. The property also includes the Museum's Visitor Center and reconstructed Historic Gardens.
