Kimbell Art Museum - Review

This is a very popular museum that is known for the rare paintings in store. They have a small but a very fine collection of masterpieces dating from centuries ago to recent times. The name Kimbell was kept after the names of Kay and Velma Kimbell whose private collections were the 1st exhibits of this museum. They also donated a hefty amount for the relocation of these exhibits in a permanent building.

The main collections of the museum apart from the many expert pieces are-

  • The design of the museum building itself and most remarkably the natural silvery wash on the ceiling.
  • The ‘Torment of St. Anthony’ which is known to be the 1st painting of the great Michelangelo and also the only one on exhibit of the Americas.
  • The paintings of Friedrich that is hardly found in USA.
  • The Classical period arts from Egypt, Assyria, Greece and Rome.
  • The Asian collection comprising of sculptures, paintings, bronzes, ceramics and works of other decorative art pieces.
  • African collection with fine pieces from Nigeria, Angola and other Democratic States. The most attractive is a piece of Oceanic Art represented by a Maori Figure.

  • Have been coming to this art museum since I was a child. Always fun to see the new exhibitions and re-visit old friends. Love the selection of artists from the impressionists period. Gift shop is nice with a large variety of books, cards, and other random fun stuff. Check out the outside sculptures and the wonderful fountain.

  • I love this place! There is so much to see and most of it is free. You can pay and go into the other exhibit but you need to have time for everything. They even have a place for the little kids to stay so you can look around. You may need to look at the schedule or call for that and how it works.idk But would highly recommend this place for a date or just a day to get out.

  • I live in Dallas but I have had a Patron membership at the Kimbell for about 20 years. They have touring exhibits that only come to a handful of cities in the US plus an amazing permanent collection. The museum buildings and grounds are beautiful as well (even the the new parking lot is nicely done). The staff and docents are always friendly and helpful and I always have a great experience there.

  • I can admit that I have not been to a museum in years, but my experience here was great. I came because I had a paper to write on Ancient times for my World Cultures class. This museum had an awesome permanent collection for this. They have a parking garage which is great for this area as well. The museum is huge and has different exhibits in different buildings. The staff was great from the time I pulled into the garage. Great experience.

  • Lunch at the restaurant and viewed the permanent collection. As always the food was very good. Especially enjoyed the guacamole soup. Cool and creamy. I never tire of viewing the Kimbel permanent collection. The paintings from the old masters and later artists have been carefully curated and never fail to leave me awed. Michelangelo's "The Torment of Saint Anthony" is his first painting in an American gallery. It is an incredible work of art and he was only 12 or 13 years old when he painted it. A must see. Love the Kimbel and always look forward to visiting.
