The collection primarily focuses on American and European classical art, but with the edition of a new wing, set to be completed soon, the Nelson-Atkins will open galleries of African art, contemporary art, and photography. And if you are speculating about the accommodation, The Sheraton Suites Country Club Plaza is located directly on the famous Country Club Plaza, which features entertainment and over 130 fine shops and restaurants.
