Nelson Atkins Museum of Art - user review
The Nelson Atkins Museum of Art is referred by many to be one of the finest art museums west of the Mississippi. Originating in 1933 as a gift from William Rockhill Nelson, founder of the Kansas City Star, and Mary McAfee Atkins, the museum has grown to occupy a very interesting looking columned bui...

While this might not seem like the ideal place to visit with the kids, it really is. Just remind the little ones that they can't touch the artwork. Other than that, they'll be fascinated by the varied collection of art. William Rockhill Nelson donated most of the resources that created the Nelson-At...

Nelson Atkins Museum of Art - user review
This museum has an unusual entrance, instead of entering a lobby you enter more on the office level and you are met at the door and escorted to a lovely art deco elevator for your trip to the upper floors. This is an outstanding museum. They have 58 galleries and 11 period rooms. They have works by ...

Nelson Atkins Museum - user review
A view of the Nelson is something to write home about, but the works inside surpass the outside architecture. William Rockhill Nelson donated most of the resources that created the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. The museum is divided into collections--Egyptian, Greek and Roman in one wing. Renaissance...

The museum is not huge, but has plenty of intimate rooms with interesting diplays in them. One of their biggest draws is it's great Asian collection---particularly the China one. But it also has a nice collection of European and American art. The sculptures both inside the museum and outdoors in The...
