More deets on another institution taking precautions amid this outbreak.
Kansas City Museum temporarily closed
Dear Friends of the Kansas City Museum,
The health and wellness of our patrons, staff, and community is always a top priority at the Kansas City Museum. To follow the recent CDC’s (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) guidelines and in accordance with its recommendation that large events and mass gatherings organizers (whether groups or individuals) cancel or postpone in-person events that consist of 10 people or more throughout the United States for the next 8 weeks, the Kansas City Museum is implementing the following:
• Effective today, March 17, the Kansas City Museum at the Historic Garment District and the Historic Garment District Museum (800 and 801 Broadway locations) will be closed to the public through Saturday, April 4, 2020.
• Public programs, tours, events, and meetings will not be permitted until after May 15, 2020. We will work closely with our program partners to reschedule activities, and we will post new dates on social media and our website.
• The annual Derby Party hosted by the Kansas City Museum Foundation is rescheduled from Saturday, May 2, 2020 to Saturday, September 5, 2020. If you have questions about the Derby Party, please contact Programs Director Paul Gutierrez at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are proud of the preventative measures we are taking to protect against the spread of COVID-19. Thank you for your continued support and cooperation. Please take care of yourself and one another.
