At The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art there is always something new to discover. Our growing collection has fascinated, illuminated and exhilarated people since 1933. Come spend time with your favorites, see what’s new on view or check out a featured exhibition.

Always invigorating, Museum programs, classes and tours bring you closer to the collection and offer inventive ways to explore on your own, with friends or family. A complete schedule of events can be found on our Calendar.

For shopping, the Museum Store carries an impressive selection of art books and original gifts. Rozzelle Court Restaurant is your rejuvenation spot; enjoy delicious food and relaxation in one of Kansas City’s most beautiful settings.

See you at the Nelson-Atkins!
