Strawberry Hill Ethnic Cultural Society – SHECS

The Strawberry Hill Ethnic Cultural Society was formed in 1988 to promote, sponsor and preserve the ethnic heritage prevalent in Kansas City, Kansas. The Cultural Center is housed in the Strawberry Hill Kansas City Museum.


It was a truly spectacular Olde World Christmas....magic, mystical, bright and beautiful. As usual, it was a busy time for our tour guides, gift shop workers, and tea room helpers. Night time tours were a great success as well as tours throughout the day by school children, private groups and weekend guests. Thanks to all who made our Olde World Christmas a success.

So that all the Christmas decorations can be stored away and we can prepare for the spring and summer activities, the museum will close February 1st and reopen on March 5th.
