In addition to its extensive permanent collection, the Kimbell always has an interesting special exhibition. Currently, it's Botticelli to Braque, works from three Scottish national museums, and it's definitely worth a special visit, even for the fee.

There are great art exhibits here, however the architecture of the museum in itself is a big draw. I studied Kahn and the Kimbell in text books but it's only after having experienced it in person when I fully appreciate the mastery of his work. This isn't the Guggenheim Bilbao with the flamboyant gestures screaming for attention. The beauty of... More

I used to live in DFW and was a member during that time so I always keep an eye out on their schedules of exhibitions. My trip to FW was planned just to see the "Botticelli to Braque" show. I thought the narration was especially good for this show (thanks, curators). This was my first visit since the "new" building;... More

I visited the Kimbell Art Museum with my brother and nephew (15 year old). There are 2 permanent wings that can be viewed free of charge. One contains African / Oceanic art along with Central American pieces. The other wing is currently displaying art from the Far East. The traveling / visiting collection requires ticket purchase which we decided not... More

This museum is a mainstay in our life. From the time our boys were young (they are now in their 20s now), we have enjoyed the exhibits and had a membership for years as well. The Kimbell brings the world to Fort Worth with excellence. I will go solo and enjoy an afternoon among some of the greatest works of... More

Fort Worth is home to several great museums and the Kimbell is one you can't miss. A diverse collection sprinkled with a few masterworks.

The Kimball is considered one of the best art museums in the USA and it is easy to see why when you visit. The permanent collection is noteworthy and there are always at least two or three traveling exhibitions that bring great art to the museum. The variety of subject matter keeps one coming back time after time. Highly recommended!... More

The Kimbell Art Museum possess an outstanding permanent collection. Every time I find myself in Fort Worth I always try to catch up with this place. Is absolutely lovely, and kind of small, so it won't take much time. A breath of fresh air in a very Texan city. Give it a try!

When a museum's permanent collection includes the first painting that MICHELANGELO ever was known to paint, you know it's going to be worth a tour. The Kimbell's permanent collection of art is outstanding. I visited for a second time this weekend for the Kimbell's Scottish Fest. The museum held a celebration of Scottish culture, music, games, etc. while allowing the... More
