172: Parks and Rec leaders talk KC Museum

This week on the Northeast Newscast we’re hearing from Kansas City Parks and Recreation Director Terry Rynard and Deputy Director Roosevelt Lyons as they look forward to the grand reopening of the Kansas City Museum later this year.

They share with Northeast News Publisher Michael Bushnell what they’re looking forward to most, how the new collections will open a door to history while focusing on the often untold stories of Kansas City, and its transition to management by the Kansas City museum foundation.
