This is the real treasure of Kansas City. The Nelson Atkins Museum of Art is a world class art museum, with many excellent collections. Their collection of art from Asia is particularly fantastic. From modern to renaissance, most major periods are represented. A lovely sculpture garden, complete with gigantic shuttlecocks line a lovely lawn. There is a great little cafe perfect for a light lunch or a romantic Friday dinner.

The Nelson has recently undergone a huge expansion and now has miles more of its treasures on display. The Nelson's treasures are housed in a beautiful neoclassical building which is one of Kansas City's most important landmarks. The art within ranges from classic masters to modern innovators. The Nelson also houses the largest Asian art collection in the midwest.

The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art is a great art museum in the downtown area of Kansas City. I don't really know anything about art, but I do know that they have a great collection of all sorts of different art works. I can go and spend hours by myself looking around at all of the art. I makes me feel like I have a little culture

The Nelson has a wonderful collection of art that appeals to a wide variety of people and ages, from paintings to scupture to medieval armor. They often have brunch in the courtyard with live music, which is lovely, and their Free Friday events are great for those on a budget.

I love this art museum. They always have great displays. It is a wonderful place to take a date and get lost in all the artwork. They have a wonderful dining space in the center of the museum that is just lovely. You should prepare to spend hours in this place!!!

If you do take the family, they have a scavenger hunt for kids where they have to find certain pieces of art, etc. This helps keep the kids entertained while you get to look around.

PROS: Romantic and educational
CONS: none

Contains a variety of art collections and on occasion bring exciting special exhibitions. Pieces of work range from contemporary to ancient and from different parts of the world. The landscaping is exquisite, and is a great place to take someone with during the summer to visit during Free Ford Fridays. If youre looking for a quiet day to shop and enjoy different art collections then buddy up and head to Nelson-Atkins Museum.

The new parking garage makes visiting the museum a breeze, no more parking on the city streets, it's convenient, safe and well gaurded. With the addition of new buildings and permanent sculptures this makes the museum the site within the city.

The Nelson-Atkins is a great place for visitors or for people around the city. The museum is HUGE and the grounds are beutiful. There are new exhibits all of the time and wonderful artifacts from all time periods. One of the best sections is the Chinese exhibit that is on the 3rd floor of the museum.. We go to the museum every few months. There is a cafe there too, so you don't have to leave to eat.

I have been visiting the Nelson Art Gallery for 64 years and continue to do so occasionaly. My children and grandchildren visit from around the world and insist that they make a trip to the Gallery on each visit. The over-all objects displayed there are equal to any I have found in Europe or Africa.
