The Kimbell isn't big but unlike the bloated Dallas Museum of Art almost everything in the Kimbell is worth seeing. Ancient Egyptian and Assyrian art, El Greco, Rembrandt, Michelangelo, Carravaggio all are here. The entire museum even for an art lover will take about 1.5 hours.

Don't let little Cowtown Fort Worth fool you: the Kimbell is a first-class art museum with an enjoyable collection. I had not been to the Kimbell in 20 years, so I was very curious to see how it has aged. The raw concrete walls, light wood floors and natural light allow the art to be the star attraction here.

Although the Amon Carter is my fav, this is a close second. Amazing collection displayed in one of the most remarkably naturally lighted museums I have ever visited. These cats know what they're doing. Awesome permanent collection, and always a stellar visiting exhibit. You will not be disappointed. Use the u dervround parking garage.

Always an amazing experience, i come over 3-4 times/year to go and my family flies in from the East coast to go at least twice/year, you cannot get a better museum anywhere in the country

Splendid little museum with a new Renzo Piano wing; the exhibits are not as grand as major museums but the gallery is neatly spaced and unhurried. There is a nice representation of pre- Columbian and Oriental art. There was also a traveling exhibit from the National Galleries of Scotland.

I love this particular museum even though it is a drive from the Dallas area it is always worth a visit to see what they have invested in. Gorgeous gallery, small and elegant. I highly recommend visiting when they are displaying your favorite artist or go anytime it is so peaceful and delightful.

This museum is world class. The buildings are wonderful and the collection is incredible. The traveling exhibits feature the most important works from around the world. This museum is in the Fort Worth Cultural District. Devote enough time to see al of the museums in this great area.

Very positive experience viewing art by the masters in an archetural renowned building. Routine changing of exhibits from world famous museus and private collections throughout the year. It is a pleasure to view the master pieces in the relatively new piano addition. Depending upon the exhibit, an admission will be charged. However some days have no charge. Covered parking in...

The Kimball offers outstanding touring exhibits but also has a good permanent collection that is free to view. The museum is not huge but its layout is well-managed to accommodate a lot of art without feeling crowded. Since the exhibition space isn't cavernous, you can take your time to go through each exhibit and not feel that you have to... More
