April 5, 2020

As we all are 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. Again, we encourage you to check our website’s home page ( for the most current closure information.

As we’re dealing with this most unexpected and difficult situation, I want you to know that our museum’s Board of Directors understands 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 visit us there. Our website and blog are up and running and we’re actively updating their content. Again, we appreciate your support and understanding during this difficult time.

Pam Blaschum, Director

TWA Museum
