What is there to do?

Located in the Historic 18th & Vine Jazz District, the American Jazz Museum showcases the sights and sounds of a uniquely American art form through interactive exhibits and films, the Changing Gallery, the Blue Room jazz club and the Gem Theater, a 500-seat performing arts center. Thousands of students, scholars, musicians and fans come here annually to learn about the legends, honor their legacy, or enjoy the best music America has to offer through dozens of education and community-based programs, traveling exhibits, over 200 live musical performances and other special events specifically for children featuring Kansas City jazz musicians Lisa Henry (vocals), storyteller Brother John, bassist Tyrone Clark and drummer Mike Warren. Jazz Storytelling introduces children to jazz, its legends, and its history through interactive stories and songs. Jazz Storytelling meets educational standards, introduces them to new music and cultures, and provides opportunities to enhance their social skills in a safe environment.
