We had a group tour that was led by the museum director. He was incredibly informative and entertaining. Amazing what quality exhibits are available in ST. Joseph!

I’ve never considered myself a fan of the classics when it comes to art. I’ve preferred visiting living history museums rather than museums loaded with paintings and the like. I’m not sure why I continue saying that, because each time I go to a museum with classical and modern art pieces, I find myself impressed and amazed with the talent.... More

My 10-yr old niece and I met one of her friends and that girl's mom and took in everything, including the gift shop. We were disappointed that the cafe was not open, even for grab and go food items. The museum was quiet, not a lot of traffic, but we liked it that way. I would go again for sure,... More

Finding beauty in your hometown is always fun, and for me to enter the Albrecht-Kemper Museum of Art for the first time in 2013 was amazing. I was born in St. Joe and my father's government career took us across the US. I continued travelling/living internationally in Latin America, Euorpe, and Asia. Last year, while home in St. Joe, we... More

There are art museums and then there are ART MUSEUMS. The Albrecht-Kemper is simply wonderful. Any trip to Saint Joseph should have this museum high on the list of priorities. Don't miss the Stuart paintings... and always a nice travelling exhibit. Mid week they serve a wonderful luncheon.

Nice art museum with place to hold special events and functions. The staff does a nice job. They do serve liquor which is nice addition to enjoying the artwork.

This is an Art Museum. The building is a lovely, the grounds and parking are wonderful and easy to access. It is easy to find, located on Fredericks Avenue, between Noyes Boulevard and the Belt Highway. The art work is varied, not everything to my taste.

We really enjoyed this museum. It looks small from the outside, but it is packed with good art. Part of the museum is a grand old house, so be sure to see the whole place. We really enjoyed the temporary exhibition of photographs, taken all over the state of Missouri.

This museum is housed in a beautiful home in St. Joseph. The artwork is impressive and the setting is wonderful.
