International Museum Day  

International Museum Day

To mark International Museum Day, we"re featuring a destination that hasn"t (yet!) achieved the fame of the Louvre or the Getty or the Met, although it"s as unmistakable in appearance as any of them. This relatively small wonder proves that inspiration can be found in many places, including a suburb of Kansas City. At 42,000 square feet, the Museum at Prairiefire in Overland Park, Kansas, is about 1/50th the size of the American Museum of Natural History in New York, with which it has a partnership. But to those who find beauty and truth behind its walls, Prairiefire is no less enriching.
