Kansas City Museum is located in Kansas City, Missouri. The Kansas City Museum is a place where one can learn about Kansas City's development from the days of the Osage Indians to the industrial and social life of the Civil War era. The museum — with its regional history exhibits, a 50-seat planetarium and natural history dioramas — is a memorable experience for all ages. Kansas City Museum at Union Station is housed in a stunning 1910 mansion, often referred as the "palace on Gladstone Boulevard." The mansion, built for lumber baron Robert A. Long, is a remarkable attraction in its own right. The mansion was donated to the City by Long’s daughter after Long’s death in 1934.
