  • I'm assuming this museum has a rotating collection of exhibits so it would be a place to visit more than once. We only had 30 minutes here so if I come back to Kansas City, I'll plan on an hour or...  more »

  • This museum is small and funky but well worth the visit. I wasn't thrilled when my son insisted we leave the Nelson Atkins to check it out, but I am so glad we did! Very refreshing change of pace. We especially enjoyed the interactive room with thought provoking questions to ponder and discuss. This would be a great place to bring kids who might not be up to huge museum full of very old art.
  • The Kemper is small and gorgeous providing a personal, engaging experience. The open feel of the museum and cafe provides for natural light and changing exhibits. It all felt bright and inviting even when contemporary art isn’t my usual go to. This is the perfect, intimate museum, not crowded that makes the experience so worthwhile. The art on display was interesting too. Do not miss the huge mural in the cafe and the cafe walls filled with edge to edge art done on site by one artist. And it is all free.
