Museum History

Kansas City Museum at Corinthian Hall is Kansas City’s oldest and largest museum of local and regional history. The Museum opened in 1940, located in the former home of Kansas City lumber entrepreneur and philanthropist Robert A. Long.

Renovations started up again in June 2010 for the fourth phase of the renovation project, the air handling system. The heating, ventilation and air conditioning system is a well needed part of the new Kansas City Museum. See aerial shots of the museum.
