Penguins from the Kansas City Zoo visited an art museum for a day. They went to the nearby Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. The zoo and the art museum wanted the penguins to have a change of scenery. The coronavirus pandemic closed the zoo so the penguins were lonely. A zoo official said: "Quarantine has caused everyone to go a little...crazy....Several of the penguins decided to go on a field trip to the zoo to get a little culture."

The penguins missed regularly seeing zoo visitors. The zoo said: "We're always looking for ways to enrich [the penguins'] lives....During this shutdown period, our animals really miss visitors." The museum joked that the penguins liked Italian art. It said: "They seemed to react much better to Caravaggio than to Monet." It added: "We are so happy...seeing how they react to art." The penguins are from Peru and Chile.
