Seven-foot-high walls of one-inch-thick glass form a triangular outdoor maze -- with only one way in and out. Designed in 2014 to be permanent; visit before bird poop and fingerprints ruin it.

Glass Labyrinth - Outdoor Maze

It's not a long maze, but we did manage to get twisted at some turns. What a cool structure! This is on the grounds of the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art near the shuttlecocks. After the maze, follow the walking path to view more neat things outside.

Do not hurry through here. They keep it pretty clean, and from the outside you can hear the Bong! Bong! of people giving themselves concussions inside. Keep a hand out in front of you, and tell the kids!

The Glass Labyrinth is super fun, but be careful -- it's harder than you think. Move slowly, or you will run into the walls.

Although identical in concept to a mirror maze, this is high art, created by New York artist Robert Morris. Opened May 22, 2014.
