I recently went to the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art and was pleasantly surprised at how crowded it was. It was a Saturday afternoon and the museum was teaming with people of all ages. I love that we have such an excellent museum in Kansas City and I loved seeing it so busy. The featured exhibit until January 11th is, "the Plains Indians: Artists of Earth and Sky". I highly suggest visiting before it's gone.
Here's an image of one of the many beautiful staircases at Nelson-Atkins.
