A few months ago, three cute penguins got a unique chance to spend a day in the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. Bubbles (5), Maggie (7), and Berkley (8) got to escape their daily lives and admire some art. And we can all admire them doing it thanks to the video below published by Kansas City Zoo.
“Quarantine has caused everyone to go a little stir-crazy, even the residents of the Kansas City Zoo,” read the video caption. “So several of the penguins decided to go on a field trip to the Nelson-Atkins, which is still closed, to get a little culture.”
Bubbles, Maggie, and Berkley are Humboldt species native to Chile and Peru’s deserts. They have their favorite pieces at the museums and the ones they loved less. “They seemed to react much better to Caravaggio than Monet,” says the museum’s executive director in the video.
