Roadside Attraction

World's Largest Shuttlecocks

Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art
4525 Oak Street
Kansas City, MO 64111-1873

(816) 561-4000


The Nelson-Atkins Museum has balls, er, birdies for this one. In a very daring move, they installed a number of monstrous badminton shuttlecocks on the museum grounds. Each 'birdie' is eighteen feet tall and weighs two and a half tons. Critics hate them saying they are in bad taste. Bad taste, the perfect ingredient for a roadside attraction!
