Kansas City’s Top Art Museums
Admission is free to both of these top museums
Kansas City’s claim to fame might be barbecue and jazz, but there’s terrific art, too. You just need to know where to find it. Here, two world-class museums you can’t miss when visiting the Paris of the Plains.
This jewel box of an art museum specializes in 20th and 21st-century pieces by legendary artists like Jasper Johns, Georgia O’Keeffe, and David Hockney, but also features exciting rotating exhibitions. Drop by the museum’s own Cafe Sebastienne for an elegant bite after exploring.
This museum is frequently ranked as one of the country’s best art institutions, and you’ll immediately recognize it from its striking architecture and giant shuttlecocks on the lawn. Inside, the collections are expansive and impressive, with an especially strong showing of Asian art.
