The Kansas City Museum is working with museum design firm Gallagher & Associates to produce the digital interactives and media for the history exhibits in Corinthian Hall. These new features may include touch screens, animated/projection maps, listening stations for oral histories, an accessible on-line 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 begin launching some interactives in late 2023.
The Kansas City Museum is immensely grateful to the Wylie Charitable Foundation that established the Kansas City Museum Challenge Fund in 2022 at the Greater Kansas City Community Foundation to match all contributions 1:1.
As the Kansas City Museum works with Gallagher & Associates on the development of the interactives, updates will be provided on this website.
