Lots of good art exhibits and even during the pandemic things were clean and we felt safe during our whole experience. Would recommend walking the outside areas as well.

I loved this Museum — much more than expected. Is that because we are in a time when we cannot travel to Europe? The building, old, elaborate, ornate, reminded me of so many places in Europe. And the collections here! Just fabulous. If you live in KS or MO, you are lucky to be able to get here OFTEN. Do it — and please support your museum in these difficult times.

The collection is really very good and the staff are polite and helpful. The outdoor sculpture garden is lovely, as well. A great place for a walk. I do worry, however, that many of the paintings and other pieces of art aren't well protected from the public, some of whom act as if they were born in barns. So, why only average? Because the museum pays most of its employees badly and is trying to prevent them from unionizing. What kind of good non-profit does that while paying the head of the museum a great deal? The union-busting attempts + Covid will probably keep me from visiting for awhile.

The Bloch (donated by Henry Block or H & Block fame) is incredible...full of French Impressionists but also Renoir, Turner, Delacroix, Rembrandt, Calder, Monet, Manet, Gauguin, Degas, Miro, Constable, Caravaggio, Steen, Guardi, Canaletto, Asian, Egyptian...the list goes on & on. Free covered parking & during COVID on-line reservations are required (in order to keep crowds down for the 'social distancing' nonsense! Masks required, as well. Take a break from the indoors & spend some time outdoors admiring the lawns & sculptures & fountains. At night, the newer modern art wing's walls are back lighted in white......a stunning look & worth the drive there after the sun sets to see. The Rozzelle Court Restaurant has really wonderful food!! You order at a counter & they bring it to you at a table in the tropical & natural lighted court......we could have spent hours there! The Museum gift shop is a MUST stop for you...so many art books it was like a library. Items for all interests & ages.

Amazing museum! Don't miss it. As a visitor, it's a little confusing when you look at the map, try going to the second floor, and end up in an empty event space, but eventually figure out you're in the newer building not the older one. Ooops! The sculpture garden is my favorite. The layout is thoughtful--you just want to spend all day there.
