4. Kansas City
Kansas City deserves national recognition for its collection of fine arts museums. Its Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, which is an architectural marvel, boasts an extensive compilation of neoclassical architecture. The museum is also known for its impressive collection of Asian art. The Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, too, is a solid option for the artistic type. Those looking for more of a lesson in pop culture should pay a visit to both the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum and the American Jazz Museum. All of that museum hunting will work up quite the appetite, so make sure you reward yourself with a slab of Kansas City-style smoked ribs afterwards.
