It is always great experience visiting this museum (note that exibits on Sundays are free; Wednesdays you pay only half price). I really liked KAWS exhibition that I saw back in December. This was really nice and interesting exhibit, it triggers your imagination.

First off I know you'll think this off the wall per the title, bear with me my friend. This museum offers three other experiences that you can have (I did) that I don't hear or repeat many people referring to. First off there are the films. The museum has a really good lineup, someone or some team has really organized... More

The building itself is worth the trip, it is unique and arranged so that art can be set-up in rooms with an interesting path leading from room to room. The KAWS exhibit was bright, colorful and popular with a lot of young folks (very nice to see). Much of the regular collection is typical of modern art which is really... More

This is an interesting museum to visit - when we visited it was dominated by exhibits by KAWS - who I like - if you don't you could be disappointed

I was unimpressed with the permanent collection of the museum as well as the special exhibition, a KAWS retrospective. I did love the giant metal structuring outside: "Vortex" by Richard Serra. Be sure to go into the structure and make a lot of noise!

We took our young kids here just to try it out. We went on a free day when the first floor was closed. The collection is so unique and they enjoyed it for 45 min. The structure, the walls, the pool, everything is so beautiful. The Amon carter and the kimball are very good too. You basically have to do... More

Free on Sunday includes the massive Kaws exhibit. From the fun entry through playful pieces we enjoyed every piece in the exhibit. It only took us about 90 minutes. If you come in the afternoon and are patient you can find free parking near the entrance too. They have a nice valet option as well. Be sure to head upstairs... More

Current KAWS exhibition is great and offers lots of photo ops! The Museum's architecture is impressive - and it's cafe is a beautiful indoor/outdoor spot for lunch. I would agree that the Museum's permanent collection is limited - but it's close proximity to the Kimball Art Museum makes for an easy visit or dining option if in the area.

How can this great piece of architecture have such a limited collection? The canvases are huge and so are the sculptural pieces on display but - why are the pieces so few?

World classs in ever aspect! The architecture of Tadao Ando is amazing. The detail and execution of the building with the serene water pond is perfection. Walk through the exhibits, admire the collection then recharge at Cafe Modern . You wont regret your visit.
