The Kansas City Museum proudly announced that this year’s Fairy Princess event will be held in the museum’s new Betty Milbank Waldrop Salon, the Louis XVI French salon on the first floor at Corinthian Hall.


This year the Kansas City Museum, located at 3218 Gladstone Blvd., is celebrating its 36th year of hosting the Fairy Princess. It was in 1987 when the Kansas City Museum resumed the Fairy Princess tradition after Kline’s Department Store, the original host, closed in early 1970.


Kline’s on Main Street in downtown Kansas City initiated the Fairy Princess event in 1935 to promote its new “Toyland” department. After 35 years of yesterday’s youngsters telling their fondest holiday hopes to the magical Fairy Princess, her enchantment came to an end. Then, 18 years would go by before the Kansas City Museum resumed the Fairy Princess tradition.


“Therefore, this year is a very special year for the Kansas City Museum,” the announcement from the Museum read. “We are celebrating 36 years of Fairy Princess magic to generations of youngsters. Now, the Fairy Princess will always be on her throne in a room befitting of the wonderous enchantment and hopeful wishes she gives to each child’s visit.”


Corinthian Hall, home of the Kansas City Museum, is now updated with state-of-the-art technology for its exhibits following a multi-million dollar restoration and renovation of the historic structure. It is once again a showplace of architectural magnificence and Kansas City history.


Timed tickets are available for December 8 through 11 for $10 per child at kansascitymuseum.org/the-fairy-princess/. Space is limited, so advance tickets are required. For this special program, the Salon, Library, and Elixir will be closed to the public.


Each ticket includes a visit with the Fairy Princess, one special gift, one sweet treat, one printed photo onsite, access to a website to buy additional prints and digital downloads by the photographer, and 10% off in Wisteria boutique. For more information, contact the Admission Desk at 816-702-7702.
