History of the Cruise-Scroggs Mansion where it all began
The Strawberry Hill Ethnic Cultural Society was formed in 1988 to promote, sponsor and preserve the ethnic heritage prevalent in Kansas City, Kansas. The Strawberry Hill Museum and Cultural Center celebrates the many nationalities of Kansas City residents. Built in 1887, the core building is an outstanding example of Victorian Queen Anne Style architecture and was home to the Cruise-Scroggs family for 32 years. In 1919, the mansion was opened by the Sisters of St. Francis of Christ the King to care for children orphaned during the 1918 influenza pandemic. The orphanage, operated in connection with St. John the Baptist Catholic Church, and closed in 1988 for the conversion to the Strawberry Hill Ethnic Museum & Cultural Center.
Plan a Visit Tour Tickets and Tea Room Reservations
The Strawberry Hill Museum is working to keep our patrons and volunteers safe. Due to the ever changing conditions of the world, we have had to re-evaluate how we are going to present the Museum and its exhibits. The Museum is asking that you purchase tickets online for your tour on a specific date and time. We are scheduling small groups to provide you with a better experience with your docent as you take a guided tour through our facility.
With the Tea Room being a small venue, we ask that you book a reservation for your party so that you may enjoy the food and desserts that we have to offer. This will guarantee you a spot at a particular time for you and your party.
