The building picture is wrong, that's the Nelson Atkins Museum. The Kansas City Museum is in Corinthian Hall, which was the mansion owned by the Long family who made their money in lumber industry. It has art exhibits, but also displays that focus on the history of Kansas City. There are two annex buildings: one for planetary shows and the other houses natural history dioramas.
