“Lego exhibit was great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Wandered in here while looking for a restaurant one night. The Lego exhibit was truly brilliant, very inspiring and something that everyone could identify with. No pressure to move on and interesting range of artwork.

“interesting little art center”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

Enjoyed the Lego exhibit there. I think for a small art center they do a great job of finding fun and interesting exhibits.

“What's the point?”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

Hardly worth going to see the 'collections'. Be ready to be treated like going through airport security. (Really, at an 'art museum'?) Was made to leave my personal belongings including my wallet with the front desk. Totally ridiculous policy.

Kristiesue, Public Relations Manager at Kimball Art Center, responded to this review, January 7, 2014
Dear Frequent Traveler,

I apologize for having to leave your personal belongings with our front desk staff. As you may know, when we rent an exhibit to display in our Gallery, we must abide by the rental contract which is drawn up by the exhibition manager, not by the Kimball Art Center. Depending on the nature of the art and its value, guests are often not allowed to bring food or drink or sometimes back packs into the museum. In the case of Chihuly, because the sculptures are so delicate, we were required to eliminate as much bulk from visitors as possible to prevent accidents. Please understand that we are legally bound to the contract elements and our goal is to display and protect the art while giving our visitors the best possible experience.

“Awesome lego display!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

We took our two young children to the Kimball for the lego display and it was amazing!! The artist did a phenomenal job! It blew us away! I think my husband and I were more floored by the level of talent than our children!! If you are in Park City while this display is in town you've gotta check it out! The staff at the museum were kind and gracious as well!! They even suggested yummy lunch ideas for us to try! Definitely plan to visit the Kimball when you go to Park City!

“Usually family friendly, and free!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

We just went to the Lego exhibit, and we have been during thier art weeks. The kids loved the crafts offered during art week (might be called something else). It is free, which makes it a standard stop every time we head up to Park City. Some exhibits are better than others but that can be expected.
