Architect Louis Kahn's most famous American building was this museum, composed of six long concrete vaults with skylights running the length of each. Here are top-notch collections of both early-20th-century European art and old masters, including Munch's Girls on a Bridge and Goya's The Matador Pedro Romero, depicting the great bullfighter who allegedly killed more than 6,000 of the animals without sustaining an injury. The museum also exhibits Greek and
Roman antiquities, African and pre-Columbian art, and has one of the largest collections of Asian art in North America.

The Kimball is a great museum that can be visited frequently to see traveling exhibits as well as new additions. General admission is free, but there is usually a charge for the traveling show. In a very convenient location with ample parking, take the time to walk around the surrounding area and check out the other nearby museums (Amon Carter Museum, Museum of Modern Art).
