Union Station and City of Kansas City Endorse Long-Term Agreement for the Kansas City Museum

After years of discussions about the future of the Kansas City Museum, the City Manager, City Council members, and Union Station leaders have forged a new long-term management agreement for the Kansas City Museum. This agreement was approved today by City Council. In the agreement, all parties have decided that the City’s Parks and Recreation Department will oversee the management, programs and operations of Corinthian Hall, the former Long mansion, owned by the City. City Manager Troy Schulte, along with members of  the City Council, including Jim Glover, Jan Marcason and Scott Wagner, developed this plan for the Parks Department to manage this community asset in the same way that it operates other and other City-owned parks, museums and buildings.


“I’m pleased that the City and Union Station came to this long-term agreement that will serve the heritage of this community well,” said Mayor Sly James. “The Kansas City Museum is a vital thread in the fabric of this City and I’m confident this agreement will solidify its future while celebrating its past. I’m grateful to Union Station leaders for their faithful stewardship of the Museum and for the professional manner in which they managed the Corinthian Hall campus and curated the collection for so many years.”
