Glore Psychiatric Museum
At one point in its 123-year history, St. Joseph's State Lunatic Asylum No. 2 held around 3,000 patients. Though the hospital is no longer operational, the imposing brick building now houses the Glore Psychiatric Museum (3406 Frederick, one mile west of Interstate 29, off Exit 47, 800-530-8866). Over a 40-year period, George Glore collected and maintained the museum's display, giving us the opportunity to get an extensive look into the history of mental-health care. The museum features a wide range of apparatuses used to treat patients, as well as a large display of artwork (much of it quite beautiful) made by the hospital's patients. A particularly memorable exhibit is the display of the more than 1,000 nails, pins and other objects removed from a patient's stomach in 1929. Admission costs $3 for students, $4 for seniors and $5 for adults. The museum is open today from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, see stjosephmuseum.org/glore.htm. $3-$5

Blue Monday poetry and open-mic
Are the words swirling in your head begging to be vocalized? Are they written on bits of paper, bar napkins and backs of receipts? Do you lack the confidence to share your creation with others? Sounds like you need the Writers Place (3607 Pennsylvania, 816-753-1090). For those wanting to ease into the literary waters, the midtown center is collaborating with the Uptown Arts Bar &(3611 Broadway, 816-960-4611) for Blue Mondays, a free spoken-word open mic, the second Monday of each month. Sign up at the bar. The event lasts from 8 to 10 p.m. See writersplace.org for more information. free

Free facility tours
Those who braved the open house for the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts might tell you that the experience could have been more agreeable. The lines were prohibitively long, and there was rain. But they'll also tell you that the Kauffman Center is something to behold. The glass-walled Brandmeyer Great Hall (the other name for the lobby) is larger than a football field, with Guggenheim-like circular walkways leading up to the balconies of Helzberg Hall and the Muriel Kauffman Theatre. If you skipped out on the grand opening, you haven't missed your chance. The center offers free, small tours (of 15 or fewer people) on Mondays, Tuesdays and Saturdays at 10:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Reservations are required. Call 816-994-7200 or see kauffmancenter.org. free
