This art museum is one of the best, not only of the nation, but probably of the world. I have seen art galleries in Paris and Spain and Italy, and this one is highly competitive -- if not better... It has a nice gift shop as well. There are unique exhibits that come only to the Kimball (as well as... More

A super collection of artwork and events. The museum store and the building itself is worth your time.

Beautiful masterpieces everywhere. They always have amazing current and upcoming exhibitions on display. Their permanent collection is not to be missed as well. Recently added, the Piano Pavilion, showcases exhibitions ranging from the twentieth-century collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, samurai armor and Portraits from the Musée d’Orsay. Very nice venue. Really nice cafe for light dining. Good parking.... More

This is a real two-fer: 37 works from Impressionists to Modernists in an impressive modern addition to the Kimbell. You walk in, hang a left and see terrific Impressionist works, familiar styles but new pieces, new because they've been in the private hands of two superb collectors. Then you step between two panels into the middle of the pavilion and... More

The Kimbell has expanded and can now show even more of their fabulous collection of paintings. The lighting in the new building is superb. We saw the special exhibition of the Nancy and Perry Bass collection of post Impressionist paintings. This is only one of many distinguished traveling exhibits we have seen at the Kimbell over the years. More coming... More

This gorgeous, well lit and airy space provides a roomy and comfortable setting for viewing the notable works that are part of the museum's collection as well as the traveling exhibits. Great solo afternoon!

A small but high-quality collection with some real highlights. These include the only Michelangelo painting in North America, as well as a spectacular Caravaggio. It's free, so if travelling with kids your risk is minimal.

Well paid out, planned, with excellent lighting and explanations of the collections. It was free admissions when we went, and the permanent and traveling collections were worth the wait for me, been trying to go to the Museum for 10 years.
