With No Visitors, Penguins Wander Empty Art Museum in Kansas City

At the Kansas City Zoo, the penguins have been a bit lonely due to the current restrictions, meaning they haven't had any visitors to see them in over two months now. So the penguins' zookeepers decided to take them on a field trip to "enrich their lives and stimulate their days."

A group of lucky penguins were allowed to roam The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art and experience a range of fine art. Julian Zugazagoita, the executive director and CEO of the museum says the penguins "seemed to react much better to Caravaggio than to Monet."

He says they also spoke Spanish to the penguins, who are native to Peru in South America, and that they "seemed to appreciate it."

The Zoo plans to reopen on May 16th on a limited basis.
