Private Group Tours

The Kansas City Museum offers private group tours Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays with advance reservations.

Tours offer opportunities for discussion and connection and focus on the history of the Long family, who built and lived on the property (1910-1934) before it became a museum (1940), and the transition of the property from private residence to museum.

Guests are welcome to shop in Wisteria, the Museum’s retail boutique, during or after the tour.
