ACOUSTIGUIDE AUDIO TOURS

Enrich your next Museum visit with free Acoustiguide audio tours for the permanent collection and building. The random-access stops feature the Kimbell’s signature paintings and sculptures as well as Louis Kahn’s architectural masterpiece in both English and Spanish. About 25 family-friendly stops are designed for children ages 7 to 12. Pick up and return audio-tour wands at the downstairs Information desk. The Museum is also proud to present its new Acoustiguide mobile application. This app presents in-depth audio and visual information on artworks in the Kimbell’s permanent collection from various periods and cultures. The app is user-friendly, allowing users to choose objects at random, to listen to either adult or child audio tour programs and to share their experiences through social media.

The Spanish-language Acoustiguide Audio tours and other Spanish-language programs were made possible by a grant from the Hearst Foundation.
