Visit Breathtaking New Exhibits at
The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art
The National World War I Museum
Here at ChiIL Mama we LOVE to travel and explore new places. With Holiday Inn as your home base, you'll always feel at home. Six months ago, we were invited to an unveiling of Holiday Inn's new look -- Change Your View, right here in Chicago. We were so impressed with the style, quality and value! Check out the bottom of our feature here for a few of our social media posts from that night, at Holiday Inn's downtown Chicago location.
Now, The Holiday Inn Country Club Plaza’s Kansas City Arts and Cultural Package gives guests the opportunity to experience the best of Kansas City culture. The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art and the National World War I Museum at Liberty Memorial, two of the most renowned museums in the U.S., are participating in the Holiday Inn Country Club Plaza’s Kansas City Arts and Cultural Package. For rates starting at $129, guests staying at the hotel receive two tickets to the Nelson-Atkins special exhibit, “Roads of Arabia,” discounts at The World War I Museum, shuttle transfers to and from the museums, and breakfast for two.
“By making the hotel their ‘base’ for the day, guests will have plenty of time to explore the museums as well as take advantage of our great location near the Country Club Plaza shops and restaurants,” said Stephanie Porter, director of sales at the Holiday Inn Country Club Plaza.
- The Nelson-Atkin’s upcoming exhibit, Roads of Arabia: Archaeology and History of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (Apr. 25 – Jul. 6), features amazing artworks in more than 200 recently excavated objects, none of which have been seen outside Saudi Arabia until 2010.
- The Plains Indians: Artists of Earth & Sky exhibit (Sept. 19 -Jan. 11, 2015), brings together 140 works of art representing more than 20 Indian nations. The exhibit celebrates masterworks spanning the centuries, from a 2,000-year-old Human Effigy stone pipe to a 2011 beaded adaptation of designer shoes.
- A hungry teenage assassin and a wrong turn forever changed the world. Guests can view On the Brink: A Month That Changed the World (now through Sept. 14), the special exhibition examining the underground organizations, diplomatic communications and international newspaper reporting of the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand and its political aftershock.
- Many believed the war that began in the summer of 1914 would be over in a matter of days or weeks. Featuring many objects and documents previously not on exhibit, the National World War I Museum's new exhibition Over By Christmas: August-December 1914 (May 3 – March 29, 2015) examines the romantic notion held in the early days of the war colliding with the harsh reality that the war would not, in fact, be over by Christmas.
“The upcoming exhibitions at the Nelson-Atkins and National World War I Museum are extraordinary, and we’d love for as many tourists as well as locals to get a chance to experience them,” said Shannon Stone, assistant manager of marketing and communications at The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art.
