Raytown Historical Society Museum today

Your Raytown Historical Society has been facing a staffing issue for the past few years due to the lack of volunteers to work, even a limited number of hours, each month at the museum.  Many requests to our members to resolve this issue have not succeeded so we must take some immediate steps to maintain an open museum with the limited number of volunteers.

Beginning December 1, 2016 the museum will only be open Thursday, Friday, and Saturday of each week.  The hours of operation will remain 10 am to 2 pm on each of these days.

We regret having to make this major change in our operations, but as our volunteers get older and younger generations are showing no interest, we are forced to make this move.

We hope that someday we can again have adequate volunteers to maintain more open days and hours.  Please consider donating 4 hours a month to the museum; we will provide training and direction. Raytown has a rich history just waiting for you to discover here in the Museum.

Thank you for understanding the situation and the causes.

Jerry Wolfe

President, Board of Directors
