Penguins Roam Art Museum in Kansas City
Penguins from the Kansas City Zoo took advantage of the lack of people in the The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art and spent the morning taking in the masterpieces. They loved Caravaggio. Monet, not so much.
Normally, only service animals are welcome at the famed Kansas City Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, but a few very lucky penguins got to break the rules just this once.
Accompanied by Zoo Director, Randy Wisthoff, they really seemed to have a great time! According to Wisthoff, the animals at the zoo miss the visitors, and this field trip acted as much needed stimuli during the shutdown.
Julián Zugazagoitia, the museum's Director and CEO, was thrilled with their visit and extremely happy to have the penguins. He said, "they reacted much better to the Caravaggio then to Monet."
