Our museum, located at 9705 E. 63rd Street in Raytown, Missouri,  is unique in that we offer an extensive research center which contains the history, both written and in pictures, of Raytown and many of the families who have lived here. We invite the public to visit our research center and encourage families of the Raytown area to share your families history with us.

The public is invited to visit the Raytown Historical Society Museum. We honor our past with many fine displays and printed information on the Raytown Community, its people, its schools, its government, and its churches.

The Raytown Historical Society was incorporated in 1966 and is a 501c3 not for profit organization.
