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. 

Scroll down to see a list of programs and experiences.

The Kansas City Museum creates programs and experiences that complement and deepen the content in exhibits and installations throughout Corinthian Hall. Programs and experiences include:

  • concerts and performances
  • films
  • lectures, workshops, and special gallery talks with curators and historians
  • book readings and signings
  • culinary experiences like cooking classes, cooking demonstrations, and chef dinners
  • celebrations and traditions like Día de los Muertos, The Fairy Princess, and The Derby Party
  • virtual programs
  • private tours
  • school field trips

Some programs and experiences are free and others are ticketed. All proceeds directly support a robust and inclusive offering of public and education programs.

Programs in 2023 are sponsored in part by the generous support the following corporations through the Kansas City Museum’s Corporate Unity Partners (CUP) corporate giving initiative:

Since 2016, True Love Yoga has offered yoga sessions for all. Join us and True Love Yoga for a beautiful morning of yoga at the historic grounds of the Kansas City Museum! True Love Yoga teachers will lead you in a grounding all-levels flow. Lauren will graciously be donating 50% of proceeds to the museum’s renovation. Bring a mat and water, bathrooms located inside the museum. Pre-registration is required, and space is limited.

On June 17, join us for a thirst-quenching Green Tea Mojito Mocktail after you sweat it out in the sun by Sip Steady. This refreshing minty mocktail has all the flavor and none of the booze. The green tea base gives a light pick-me-up, while the hints of mint cool the body. Thank you Sip Steady!
