We are reviving our Junior Docent Program and would love to work with students of any age. This program is an opportunity for students to volunteer as junior tour guides at our historic homes. Working as a tour guide can be a deeply rewarding experience for students and they will develop skills such as public speaking, professionalism, organization, and research, as well as an appreciation for community and local history. Students who are interested can fill out this form: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScBuJ5H6uFYWnv9CVnurzNjy9bWOQ94m_1vdtCfsnEJSP3lEA/viewform

Our next training opportunity will be July 23rd at the Wornall House from 4-5:30 PM.

Mission Statement

The Mission of the Wornall/Majors House Museums is to engage the community by bringing history to life through hands-on, innovative programs and experiences.

Description

Built in 1858, the John Wornall House Museum is a restored Greek Revival home furnished with period antiques. Built As the family home of John and Eliza Wornall, the house played a crucial role in the 1864 Battle of Westport. The Wornall House is a treasure from the days of early Kansas City, and is a valuable educational tool for all ages. On our tours, visitors from around the metro and across the country learn about the frontier experience, the Border Wars, and the American Civil War in an immersive environment.
We invite you to join us in sharing our story, preserving our structure, and raising our visibility in the community.
