Coronavirus Precautions

It’s time to stay home. Time to do everything we can, as individuals, to slow the spread of the coronavirus. The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art is closed for now, and we hope you will visit us online to draw inspiration and courage from our works of art.

We regret that all events, classes, workshops and tours are canceled, at least through mid June. This includes the museum’s Passport to India festival and the largest fundraiser for the museum, ShuttleCork. It also includes the Juneteenth festival. Check the museum’s online calendar for details.

During this temporary closure, the museum’s works of art are well protected and secured, and we will all look forward to seeing our “friends” again soon.

The Nelson-Atkins will continue to be a place for inspiration, curiosity, and human expression, through this website and the museum’s social media.

Watch this space for updates in the coming days.
