Pueblo to Pueblo: The Legacy of Southwest Indian Pottery

Native American pottery vessels and supporting materials from the Museum’s Dyer Collection of Native American artifacts will go on tour throughout the United States starting in 2012 as part of the Pueblo to Pueblo: The Legacy of Southwest Indian Pottery exhibition, produced by Smith Kramer Traveling Exhibitions.


Past Exhibits

The Museum collections are encyclopedic and represent major periods of the City’s development from the mid-19th century to the present day. Of particular interest are some of the original furnishings from the residence, and the carriages and tack, as well as hundreds of ribbons and trophies, of Mrs. Combs’ storied career in the horse show ring.

Exhibit Publications

During this period of renovation and construction at the site, the exhibition program at Kansas City Museum is adapting and changing. We are currently unable to utilize our exhibit galleries. Therefore, we are making our collection accessible to the public in a variety of ways – in print, on the web and through lectures and programs at the collection storage facility.


Community Curator Program

Discover artifacts from the Kansas City Museum through our Community Curator Program. The Community Curator program of Kansas City Museum invites historians and history educators to share their perspectives on artifacts they choose from the Museum collection. This provides fresh insight about artifacts and collections of Kansas City Museum and Union Station, and welcomes diverse input from the Kansas City history community.
