Join AARP for an entertaining and informative tour of the American Jazz Museum in Kansas City without leaving home! 

Located in the Historic 18th & Vine Jazz District in Kansas City, Missouri, the American Jazz Museum showcases the sights and sounds of jazz through interactive exhibits and films, the Changing Gallery exhibit space, Horace M. Peterson III Visitors Center, The Blue Room, and Gem Theater. Since its inception in September 1997, the Museum hosts thousands of students, scholars, musicians and fans of the arts for over 200 performances, education programs, special exhibitions, community events and more each year, providing an opportunity to learn about the legends, honor their legacy, or simply enjoy the sounds of modern day jazz.

Our first two tours are in the books and the third tour is coming up on August 27th. The August tour will feature the late Charlie Parker and will end with music from the Kansas City Mutual Musicians Foundation.
