Thomas Hart Benton Home and Studio State Historic Site reviews
We visited his home on National Smithsonian day It was amazing to learn so much about him and his paintings more »
This is another of the great small sites that the Missouri State Park system preserves. It provides a look not only into the artist's life, but into life over the time the Bentons lived in this... more »
This is easily the best house museum I've ever visited. Katie, our tour guide, was expert-level knowledgeable about Benton, his family, and the home and was wonderfully engaging by asking us questions and starting conversations. I had no idea that this place is the smallest national park in the US at a 1/3 of an acre! Very intimate experience and I felt like I came away with so much knowledge and insight. I hope to visit again soon and go on the Roanoke Walking Tour Katie put together.
Historic gem! This tour was great - our guide was knowledgeable and friendly and made the subject so interesting. Always a fan of THB, it was amazing to see where he worked and lived. The house is beautiful and they've done a great job of keeping it real and inviting. So interesting the lives of the Benton's. A treasure for Kansas City and a must see for locals and visitors!
