5. See the new Chinese Art Exhibit at the Nelson-Atkins Art Museum

a rare exhibit of Chinese art at the Nelson-Atkins Museum. The exhibit will only show in a few museums because of the fragile state of the ancient pieces of art. The Nelson-Atkins Art Museum is always free and hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday.
