This past Saturday, my husband and I had our first outing in KC since we moved here. When he interned down here last summer, he went to the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art and said it wasn’t too bad. Well since we had nothing else to do, and it’s free to tour, we decided to go have a look. I was pleasantly surprised at what I found.
The museum grounds are gorgeous! We walked around outside for a while because they have sculptures scattered about the property.
Here are some shots of the famous birdies.
The above picture was taking directly following a scolding through a microphone placed just out of frame. It went something like “DO NOT TOUCH our outside sculptures!” Not even kidding, I got yelled out for ever so lightly placing my hands on the birdie. I was a little upset as you can see.
It was just a beautiful building.
This guy looked pretty cool. I wanted his outfit :)
Probably one of the prettiest crosses I’ve seen. It was a ceremonial cross carried by a priest during special occasions that took place inside of a Catholic church in Spain.
This is a close up of a slab of some sort of rock carved by the Egyptians. I loved the detail! I can only imagine how long it took to carve this.
A real live mummy. Kind of? That phrase doesn’t seem to work in this situation LOL.
This. This is Monet’s Waterlillies. I am absolutely in love with the impressionist period and this is probably my favorite. I know it’s probably cliché to have this as my favorite but I truly love this painting.
Here is a close up.
My husband and I, well I, had a great time at the museum. If you ever get to visit KC I suggest going to the museum. It was a great way to spend a couple of hours on the weekend!
After we were done there, we decided to tour a brewery so my husband could “reclaim his manliness” as he put it. But that is a post for another day.
