I already love visiting my local museum but this made it affordable to go to the special exhibits! Beautiful!

It is always worth a trip to see The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. If you do not wish to pay for inside parking, you can park on a surrounding street and walk in, just be aware of the days the Nelson is open! I thoroughly enjoyed the special showing of Thomas Hart Benton and then I spent some time sketching a sculpture in a different section of the museum. There are stools in different areas that you can use to sit upon while drawing with pencils only! The guard I talked to about the location of the stools actually went and got a stool for me and put it back when I was done sketching! I always see something new whenever I go to the Nelson. And don't forget to browse their gift shop.

Loved the Thomas Hart Benson Exhibit. The collection was magnificent! I really enjoyed eating lunch in the courtyard. The food was delicious. The staff at the museum and in the courtyard were very courteous and helpful. I always love going the the Nelson Art Gallery. It is truly a Kansas City treasure!

What You'll Get

Like the first draft of the Declaration of Independence, which featured frowny faces instead of bullets in the list of grievances, art can be both inspiring and depressing. Surrender to the emotive power of world-class art with today’s Groupon: for $30, you get a one-year friend level membership to The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art (a $65 value).

Grabbing the top spot in CityVoter’s 2009 Best Museum poll, The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art serves as Kansas City’s intersection of art, culture, and history. Boasting more than 33,500 pieces and art objects, the museum’s vast collections are organized by period, geography, and medium and feature everything from photographs to sculpture to haunted portraits with eyes that follow visitors around the room. Rotating exhibitions encourage return visits, like a sentient boomerang that grabs your hand and refuses to let go. The current exhibit, Solitary: Alienation in Modern Life, explains away loneliness with works from artists including Henri Matisse, Otto Dix, and Paul Klee, who moonlighted as a self-help guru and was the first to posit that men and women may be space aliens hailing from separate planets. This Saturday, the museum opens two new exhibitions, Through African Eyes: The European in African Art, 1500 to Present and Romancing the West: Alfred Jacob Miller in the Bank of America Collection, which members get to see for free.

A yearlong friend membership includes VIP perks, such as invitations to members-only event previews and discounts at both the Museum Store and the Rozzelle Court Restaurant and Museum Café. Great for art enthusiasts, pursuers of unadulterated knowledge, or family members who spend entirely too much time at the Museum of Obscure Tax Law, a yearlong membership to The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art is a pulchritude-filled pathway to aesthetic enlightenment.


Yelpers give The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art a five-star average rating. TripAdvisors give the museum 4.5 owl-eyes, and Judy's Book reviewers give it a 3.6 average rating.

  • Displays are beautiful and show the works in such a perfect way. They have a little bit of everything, and I do mean everything. – Alice A., Yelp
  • While the "Shuttlecocks" often get the headlines, and they are fabulously fun, this museum has excellent selections of a wide variety of art from 2500 BC to the present. – RIHarri, TripAdvisor
