    »Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art

    Since its opening in the Fall of 1994, over the last two decades the Kemper Museum has become one of the most respected galleries in the region. The permanent collection donated by Bebe and Crosby Kemper features contemporary artwork and some of the artists include the famous glassblower Dale Chihuly, Georgia O'Keefe, Andrew Wyeth and Robert Mapplethorpe, just to name a few.  Some temporary exhibits have featured a complete retrospective by fashion photographer, Herb Ritts and a moving AIDS tribute by Robert Juarez. The building merits attention also, it has plenty of nooks and crannies that are interspersed alongside two elongated wings, which makes the structure appear like a bird in flight.

    »Money Museum

    From its humble origin in the small Bohemian town of Joachimsthal to its omnipotent omnipresence in everyday life, the American dollar has certainly come a long way. In fact, the word 'dollar' derives from this original coin fashioned in the 16th Century, as it was called 'Tolar' in Czech and 'Thaler' in German. Nonetheless, this museum located in downtown K.C. tells the public everything they need to know about the Federal Reserve System of banking in the U.S. and the museum itself is located inside a federal branch. Some of the highlights include visits to the massive cash vault, the Truman coin collection, interactive displays and they even give you a free bag of shredded money to take home as a souvenir! Admission is free and it's open during normal working hours.
