Manage to spend nearly an entire day “overwhelmed” by Nelson-Atkins Museum.
A very traditional “museum” building, its high-ceiling, expansive galleries allow art of all sizes to sprawl comfortably. A light (in multiple senses of the word) lunch in their “cafeteria” provides a delightful choreography as diners glide between a massive central fountain and their tables.
Late afternoon and early evening brightness allow an easy drive up to Des Moines/IA. (Realize, at this point, am entering my “manic” mode!!)
