Event Spaces The art of entertaining
The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art is the art & soul of Kansas City. When we aren’t celebrating a family festival, hosting a lavish gala or presenting an artist talk, museum spaces can be rented to members and the public.
From grand settings for unforgettable events to distinctive spaces for meetings and luncheons, the Nelson-Atkins has a variety of venues perfect for any occasion.
