Lovely experience. Look forward to going back. We did a quick visit to see the Samurai exhibit. Electronic tour was good, with the various AR codes throughout. Neat experience. We want to take the kids back.

First if you read the worst reviews like I do I want to clarify two things: it is free (unless there is some special exhibit) and there is a guideline that you cannot come closer than 12 inches to the art so if you are like us you want to get pretty damn close to that 12 inch mark the... More

Took in the last day at the Samarai Exhibit which is absolutely fantastic. It was in the new piano pavilion which is beautiful with wide open space and excellent natural light. My four year old daughter also liked the play room where she met several new friends and enjoyed the great toys and books!

I went the new Piano designed building that was showing a Samurai exhibit. It was a great space for this exhibit. Can't wait to see what new for the Kimball.

Kimbell museum is an amazing small museum with a very high level collection including Caravaggio, Monet, Gaugin and so on. It also includes manufactures dated over 2500 years b.c. It's divided in two halls, Europeans and impressionists. The building, hosting the collection, is also very interesting. Free admission to the permanent collection.

I am pleasantly surprised when I visited this place with no admission fee. How nice of Arts museums near Dallas-Ft. Worth area. Are Texans that rich so that they don't need admission fees? 1) It is not a big museum but great European Arts of limited quantities are displayed in very artful ways. Not cramped with too many stuffs like... More

We loved going to the Kimbell. It is a nice place to see the art, and unique exhibits. The people were friendly and our kids loved it. Can't wait to go back.

The Kimbell Art Museum offers an art collection of the highest quality. The permanent collection has free admission and displays the greatest artists at their very best. They are truly inspiring. Make sure to walk across the beautifully landscaped grounds to the new Renzo Piano addition, an architectural gem. It houses an early art and asian exhibit and has special... More

The museum itself is a work of art with natural lighting that only enhances the exhibited artwork. But where the museum truly shines is in the world-class special exhibits the Kimbell frequently sponsors.

I was shocked to first discover the Kimbell Art Museum when my son first started at TCU. We were from a large city I truly didn't expect much from this museum. Was I surprised! Truly a Gem that you must not miss!
