Last Friday went to see the special exhibit of the Bass family collection The collection is amazing and if I am correct it's the first time that has been exhibited outside their home. There are treasures and great art pieces. Do not miss if you are in the DFW area. The exhibit is free no charge at all. There are... More

Bass Collection and permanent collection are first rate and the buffet lunch is a bargain at $12 pp. The grounds are beautiful with a sculpture garden

It's unusual to find such a great collection of art for no fee. The museum is well maintained with a terrific eclectic collection of art.

The Kimball is an icon of Fort Worth. The building designed by Louie Kahn is an original piece of art in itself. You'll see private collections here that you will not see anywhere else. I became a charter member for $75 per year. Only two visits with my girlfriend more than pays for the fee. Plus you get to attend... More

While the collection is modest compared to any of the great galleries, the individual pieces are all treasures of European masters (with some ancient pieces and pre-Colombian sculptures which should not be missed). Check out if special exhibitions are also being shown. The one at the moment has some Van Goghs, Monet and other great artists of the 19th and... More

This museum has a great permanent collection. I like that it is small enough to see the entire museum without tiring. Art from many famous artists, as well as beautiful pieces from lesser known artists. Don't miss the gift shop, and definitely have lunch in the cafe. The meals are chef prepared, very yummy, but very reasonably priced.

We went to the Bass private art collection display and enjoyed it. It is a free exhibit. We recommend it to anyone who enjoys art.

Wonderful permanent collection, architecture and special exhibits. Not to be missed experience for anyone appreciating the arts. Lectures and symposiums add in depth information.

I began taking my infant to the Kimbell years ago. Today, I come back for their fascinating special exhibits and shear beauty of the building. There isn't a better museum in our country. I cannot say enough about the Kimbell. It truly is a treasure!
