The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art is one of the most famous art museums in the United States, located in Kansas City, Missouri. The museum was first opened to the public in 1933. Since during the Great Depression, there was a large amount of precious works of art dumped at a low price in the global art market, and there were few acquirers. Therefore, the museum acquired a large number of cultural relics in a short period of time. Since then the museum established the foundation in the art museum.
