Kansas City Museum invites Northeast residents for exclusive first look

The Kansas City Museum is set to reopen to the public on October 21, 2021 after an extensive restoration and renovation.

Leading up to the renovation and through the years of closure of Corinthian Hall, residents of Historic Northeast Kansas City have been advocates for the once neglected building.

In recognition, the Board of Directors of the Kansas City Museum Foundation (KCMF) and the staff of the Kansas City Museum, invite Northeast residents to a special private reception to celebrate the reopening of Corinthian Hall on Saturday, October 16 from 12:30 to 5 p.m. at the Kansas City Museum located at 3218 Gladstone Blvd.

“We will still be in the process of exhibit installation, and this will be a unique and exciting opportunity to see Corinthian Hall in its final stage of transition before we reopen to the public on October 21, 2021,” the invitation reads. “Thank you for your generosity and commitment, as well as your confidence in all of us. We are looking forward to celebrating this momentous occasion with you.”

Tours will be timed and space is limited. Reservations for a timed entry can be made at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/preview-for-northeast-residents-only-tickets-170178383125?utm-campaign=social&utm-content=attendeeshare&utm-medium=discovery&utm-term=listing&utm-source=cp&aff=escb.

The Kansas City Museum is taking every precaution to create a safe event during Covid-19. Face coverings are mandatory.

Ice cream from Fairway Creamery will be available on the East Lawn following tours. Street parking available.
