  • Though the retrospective was as complete as any that could be imagined, it is Kahn's Kimbell Museum that took my breath away.  more »
  • For such a large metro, the museum is just bland. Couple of paintings, maybe, worth mentioning, everything else is quite boring. Probably, it's a very good place for locals, with concerts and events, ...  more »
  • Great permanent exhibit, good traveling exhibits, amazing restaurant (the lunch buffet never disappoints). Did I mention it's FREE?  more »

  • Love the Kimball so much, I'm a member. They always have amazing special collections and a great Asian collection in house. Great facility and their underground parking garage is free. We've commented that the garage would make a great event venue as well. Give yourself several hours here and enjoy!
  • FREE! Small museum of various types of visual art, mostly historic & classical with a contemporary exhibit. The cafe (small meal & drink ~$10) is good with free refills. There was a knitting group while we were there. Some of the exhibits are in a separate building close by. The campus is nice with trees and modern waterfalls. Loved it!
  • I visited this place twice since I am in Dallas. Both time due to a conference. This place is very good for such type of occasion, because whenever you get bored, just visit the nearby museum to entertain yourself. There you will find lots of historic objects those will take you thousand years ago. very nice place and must visit.
  • The collection is pretty good a few very notable pieces, over all I thought it was a bit limited considering how huge the building is. However it is free and definitely worth the time I spent there. The building itself is pretty cool too.
  • The "Drop In Studio" program is an incredible learning experience. It is hosted most Saturdays during the month, the calendar is found online. You can begin signing up at 12pm, which I recommend since they are only able to accept the first 20 children. The "class" begins at 1pm with a quick trip through the gallery. Which piece(s) are highlighted depends on the topic (which changes each month). After listening to the teacher, the class goes back to the studio to create our own piece of art to take home. We have been going monthly for a few years now and the topics are never repeated. We also get to create pieces of art with materials I don't normally keep around the house. It is an amazing way to introduce children to the world of art!
