Friday only; 9am to 4pm Nelson Atkins Museum of Art, Lunch, National Museum of Toys and Miniatures. $56 per person
Inside the Nelson’s magnificent neoclassical structure, you’ll find a massive collection of sculpture, painting, and decorative art. We are especially proud of the new Henry Bloch (think tax preparation) Galleries of French impressionist paintings.
Your artistically prepared lunch will is served in the equally delicious Rozelle Court located at the museum.
Forget everything you know about toys or miniatures; prepare to have your mind blown as you explore the National Museum of Toys and Miniatures.
This modern facility houses what must be the greatest collection of miniature art anywhere in the world. One wonders who has the patience and skill needed to create these tiny masterpieces. Toys, too, abound at the museum.
You’ll find everything from antique dolls to Tonka trucks. Look closely and you’ll find a miniature ’30s Packard.
