COVID-19 Notice from Director, Pam Blaschum: 

As we are all aware, non-essential social interaction and sheltering-in-place continue to be strongly recommended or mandated by federal, state, and local governments. For that reason, the TWA Museum will remain closed. We will evaluate the situation again on April 30th. Based on predictions of COVID-19 peak occurrences for this part of the country, it is highly likely we’ll remain closed beyond April 30th, but we will remain flexible and will continue to assess the situation on a rolling basis. 

As we are dealing with this most unexpected and difficult situation, I want you to know that our museum’s Board of Directors understand how much we matter to our donors, friends, volunteers, and the visitors we’ve hosted over the years. We also view ourselves as an important institution related to the culture and history of Kansas City. We are working diligently to remain operationally and financially sound during our closure.

In the meantime, we continue to be “open” online and hope you’ll continue to visit us. Our website and blog are up and running and we’re actively updating their content. Again, we appreciate your support and understand during this difficult time.

Pam Blaschum, Director
