If you see nothing else on display, spend some time looking at the elaborate arrowheads. They are fascinating works of art. Actually, this is true of the entire exhibit but the arrowheads were my son and my favorite.

Let me say first of all, I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THE KIMBALL ART MUSEUM. I have had a membership for several years but because of my work schedule I haven't been there in awhile. I recently had some time off and decided to check out the latest exhibition - Samurai: Armor from the Ann and Gabriel Barbier-Mueller Collection. FASCINATING is the... More

I had not planned an art museum for our excursion to Fort Worth, but my son-in-law was intrigued by the huge signs all over town for the travelling Samurai armor exhibit. We were impressed that there was such bold publicity for an art exhibit. While he lingered fascinated by the Samurai exhibit--a separate fee, half price after five on Thursdays... More

We've live in the area for ~30 years and have never been to the Kimball. We're not the art museum types in general but I really wanted to see the Samurai exhibit. We went on a Sunday afternoon and it was very interesting and well done. The Kimball overall is beautiful and the Samurai display was excellent. There were lots... More

We were concerned that the Pavillion would distract from Louis Kahn's masterpiece. It does not...it compliments in a way we did not imagine.

The Kimball was already world class due to its high quality exhibitions and architecture. However, now that the Piano pavilion has been added, it is almost in a class by itself.

This free museum has some wonderful paintings from every period. It is easy to manage as there is only one large exhibit area in the main building. The newest building has Columbia art and special exhibits.

The Kimbell is an extraordinary museum. Their permanent collection is extensive, and includes such masters as Michelangelo, Picasso, Matisse, Renior, Caravaggio, and Miro. They have fabulous audio tours that enhance your visit beyond the gallery labels. Many of the pieces have a second audio number, specifically for children. Our family has really enjoyed the family festivals that include hands-on art... More

The design of this museum is great, providing subtle, natural light throughout the upper floors. We happened on an amazing special exhibit of samurai armor. The permanent collection is excellent, as well.
