The Historical Society of Lee's Summit maintains a museum in the 1939 Post Office in downtown Lee's Summit on West Main Street. The museum originally opened October 4, 1991 in the south end of the historic 1905 train depot. On April 22, 2015, it re-opened in its new home. The museum houses a number of historic artifacts, maps, and photos of early Lee's Summit.

The museum contains maps, photographs, and artifacts of early Lee's Summit. Displays include a re-creation of the Vogue Theater, a WPA kitchen, information on local musical families the Brownings and Methenys, and an exhibit on the Border War including Lee's Summit's notorious resident Cole Younger. Much more can be found at the museum including a gift shop and research room.
