Strawberry Hill Museum and Cultural Center
The Strawberry Hill Museum was established in 1988 by the Strawberry Hill Ethnic Cultural Society to promote, sponsor and preserve the ethnic heritage prevalent in Kansas City, Kansas. The organization is run entirely by volunteers
The Strawberry Hill Museum has more than 30 rooms of unique displays. Permanent exhibits highlight the cultures and people of Poland, Russia, Slovakia, Lithuania, Croatia, Slovenia, Ukraine and the Netherlands.
The HALL OF IMMIGRANTS opened in October 2005. The museum is proud to display pictures and ancestral artifacts from the families who settled in this area during the late 1800s and early 1...900s.
The GIFT SHOP sells a variety of unique items including original works of art and craftsmanship from the Baltic and Slavic countries of Europe and the Kansas City, Kansas community.
The TEA ROOM is open from 1:00 pm to 4:00 p.m. on weekends and serves delicious, authentic Slavic desserts with tea or coffee. Stop by, relax and enjoy a special treat in our beautiful facility.
Museum is beautiful, full.of fine craftsmanship in wood.and glass, architecture. We were surprised how much we learned about many immigrating groups to KC. Charming Tea room was delightful and delicious and all the staff were wonderfully warm and friendly. We will have to return.
Although the tour guides were older and retired (and somehow all deaf to an amazingly loud door chime) they were friendly and knowledgeable about all the various aspects of Strawberry Hill's history. Bob was our tour guide and he was more than willing to share insight on the immigration of Europeans to the various KC neighborhoods as well as architecture, both past and present. Will go again when the tea-room is open.
Amazing place. Holiday decorations are a must see!
I used the location to shoot a sunrise over Kansas City. It's a great location and I'd like to visit the actual museum.
Absolutely stunning! The tour was wonderful and very interesting. Enjoyed learning more about the area. Definitely recommend taking the tour!
