Owner description: Drop in for an hour, come for lunch, or spend the entire day wandering through world-class galleries. The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art is the cultural jewel of Kansas City and just three blocks from the Country Club Plaza, and admission is free. The Nelson-Atkins, recognized as one of America’s finest art museums, strives to be the place where the power of art engages the spirit of community. With 40,000 works of art, the Nelson-Atkins is best known for its new Bloch Galleries, featuring Impressionist and Post-Impressionist art, plus its Asian art, photography, American paintings, American Indian and Egyptian galleries. The Donald J. Hall Sculpture Park, a beautiful setting for a walk or picnic, is an oasis in the city and home to notable sculptures.

It is a world class art museum with classic art from all periods and styles.
We had a docent-led tour and a time limit (I was with a tour). We went from room to room while she explained one example in each room. I would preferred to be left on my own to wander around the rooms that interested me.

I spent time in the contemporary art section of this museum. There were a few amazing pieces I could have stayed with all day.
Make sure you see the sculpture outside as well.
