We’ve been to quite a few art museums in this country and others, and too often, we feel overwhelemed by the sheer volume of visual stimulation. This is a good sized-museum. It’s a very nice place, relatively small, the art is well-displayed and well-lighted, and it’s never very busy. I especially like the room in the museum’s northwest corner highlighting... More

Every now and then you come across a small museum at which you find yourself saying with delight: "Where has THIS place been hiding." You might find this to be one of them. The small but well-chosen collection is nicely and intimately displayed and provides a representative survey of paintings by significant American painters from the 18th to 20th centuries.... More

The Albrecht-Kemper Museum of Art in St. Joseph specializes in American Art - it's permanent collection is quite impressive for a small museum. It also has two gallery spaces that are used for temporary exhibits. Its well worth a visit.

Sometimes you just have to stop and read the small sign that says: Albrecht-Kemper Museum of Art. Originally, this magnificent building was home to Mr. Albrecht who owned Western Tablet Company--home of the Big Chief tablet and so much more. Now the Mead Corporation.Later, it was converted into a gallery. The grounds alone are beautiful. Weddings and picture ops are... More

At first you think it's someone's stately home, which it was, years ago. Then once around the back in the parking lot the entrance is visible. Beautiful pieces are on display both historic & contemporary, including students of Thomas Hart Benton.

The museum was a beautiful place for our wedding reception and Robyn the special events coordinator and her staff were just wonderful to work with. The guests enjoyed viewing the art, the gardens looked lovely, and the entire event flowed smoothly. We were very happy to be there.

Looking for a nice spot to have a light lunch that isn't fast food? This is the place to be! They serve lunch Wednesday and Thursday each week and the menu changes as well. This is a great spot for a girls luncheon, client lunch or just a date spot. Enjoy the art and the food!

It displayed local arists. Beautiful building and history. Eat some lunch why you are there. Make sure you go downstairs to view the black and white room.

My Mom and I went here on free museum day, and it was exactly like I'd remembered it being when I had went there in sixth grade. There's very cool art, but even cooler sculpture like pieces. Like I said, we went on free museum day, so I'm not too sure how much it would usually cost.
