In January 2023, the Kansas City Museum had an HVAC water pump malfunction that caused water damage in Corinthian Hall in select areas on all four floors. There is no permanent damage, and repairs are progressing; however, the complexity of some elements are taking longer than anticipated. The Museum will remain temporarily closed and will release more information soon about the expected reopening date of Corinthian Hall. 

The Kansas City Museum is a history museum. It 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.

To date, Corinthian Hall is the only building on the 3.5-acre property that has been restored and renovated with all new history- and humanities-based exhibits, installations, and amenities. We are actively working with Gallagher & Associates on creating exhibit interactives and media for Corinthian Hall, and with International Architects Atelier on designing the rest of the property, which will be restored and renovated.

We look forward to creating new, lasting memories of the Kansas City Museum with our community.
