The Plaza district was designed with the architecture and art of Seville, Spain, in mind, and a stroll around the neighborhood makes the connection quite clear. With more than 30 fountains, sculptures and murals to explore, taking a walk through the Plaza is like taking a mini-vacation to Spain; there's even a half-size replica of Seville's famous Giraldi Tower.
But there's more to the Plaza than just its stunning architecture. Art lovers won't want to miss the acclaimed Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. With more than 34,500 pieces in its collections, this world-class art museum houses a diverse collection containing works from more than 5,000 years of history, from ceramic sculptures found in ancient Chinese mausoleums to contemporary paintings. The Museum has a regular schedule of events, exhibits and showings, so there's always something to do and see. If you're craving a touch of whimsy, stop by the Toy and Miniature Museum. This Plaza institution has 38 rooms, all packed with the world's finest miniatures, toys and marbles from different periods in history.
