Private Group Tours

The Kansas City Museum offers private group tours Tuesday – Thursday 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.
