The Kansas City Automotive Museum embraces the unique and diverse stories of Kansas City, while educating young and old, and celebrating the culture, artistry, industry and innovation of the automobile. Since opening, the Museum has become a recognized and popular establishment within the car community and has grown to be a meeting place for car enthusiasts, historians and visitors to Kansas City. The Museum rotates over 100 vehicles a year, and consistently showcases a collection of nearly 40 cars at any given time. In addition, the Museum hosts more than 30 community events throughout the year.
The future home of the Kansas City Automotive Museum sits at 31st Street and Southwest Trafficway near downtown Kansas City, MO. Sharing the same skyline as the iconic Kansas City Scout statue, the Museum has an opportunity to be one of the premier automotive museums in the country. Currently, the site is home to “The Underground - Kansas City’s Car Collection”, where vehicles are stored and displayed in a safe and convenient location.
Our mission is to entertain and educate all generations through the preservation, promotion and display of Kansas City’s rich automotive heritage.
Our future vision is to expand our mission to include the entire Midwest.
