The Kansas City Museum is actively fundraising to create the digital interactives and media for the history exhibits in Corinthian Hall.
To support this process, the Wylie Charitable Foundation has established the Kansas City Museum Challenge Fund at the Greater Kansas City Community Foundation to match all contributions 1:1 through February 28, 2023.
The Museum is working with museum design firm Gallagher & Associates to produce the exhibit interactives, which may include touch screens, animated/projection maps, listening stations for oral histories, an accessible collections database, QR codes, etc. These interactives will enhance the exhibits in Corinthian Hall by adding more dynamic content and learning experiences.
The Museum aims to launch the interactives in late 2023.
