Pack a lunch and bask in the grandeur (and shade) of one of KC’s most impressive institutions by picnicking on the Nelson-Atkins Museum of the Art’s lawn followed by a self-guided tour through the world-renowned sculpture garden.

Make sure you take some time to study the sculptures by Henry Spencer Moore. These modern pieces were designed to be a symbol of humanity and optimism following World War II, as they refrain from the use of any rigid, harsh lines and embrace the abstract. What else can you notice about the appearance of the pieces and what they symbolize?

Not sure what to pack for lunch? Check out this guide to preparing a traditional English picnic. Alternatively, you can leave the preparations up to the experts at Grand Street Cafe and pick up your food right across the street.

“For over 25 years, locally owned and operated Grand Street has been a Kansas City favorite for its modern American cuisine. Our food is simple, elegant, and exciting. Our chefs are dedicated to ensure your culinary experience will be fulfilled.” —Grand Street Cafe
