The Kimbell Art Museum is Fort Worth's jewel for the fine arts. They have an excellent permanent collection and will also have collections brought in for viewing. They have a small restaurant inside and you can get light fare and coffee/tea/softdrinks. When you are in the DFW area, The Kimbell is a must see.

I have been to this museum a few times, but the latest time was for an Art History paper. The staff was very kind in helping us find the right paintings, and were also knowledgeable of the art work. The art itself was beautiful and there was definitely a broad collection. I will definitely visit again.

The architecture of the the Kimbell building is amazingly beautiful along with the Renzo Piano building. You can see art from Caravaggio, Michelangelo, Monet, Van Gogh, and many other artists. The museum is an awesome experience and not too overwhelming.

I really like this museum. Very well laid out, not too stuffy. Staff was all nice. Great things to see, there are two sides and the outside is very nice also. The exhibs change often, so you almost can't go too much.

This museum offers two buildings full of various works and collections. I was very impressed with their permanent collection, particularly the European section. The permamanet collection is a vast assortment of sculptures, paintings, and various other works of art, all on view for free. Underground parking in a pristine garage is also available for free (limited number of spots!) Who... More

This is a relatively small museum which currently has a special exhibit from the collection of the Bass family, a wealthy Texas oil family. The exhibit contains some beautiful French impressionists as well as a couple of Picasso's and several Rodin sculptures. The permanent museum collection heavily favors paintings from the 1600's and 1700's which aren't our favorites. The museum... More

I've been visiting the Kimbell since I moved to Fort Worth at age 7. It's a gracefully laid out museum with a timeless design. The natural lighting, water features, limestone and beautiful wooden flooring set the stage for a wondrous array of artwork. Their exhibits rotate regularly, and their permanent collection is worth revisiting. I check their website to ensure... More

I couldn't believe I hadn't heard of this little gem before. You can run through this museum in 30 minutes or spend a couple of hours. Definitely worth the trip and I couldn't believe it was free. There was a Monet, Picasso, Michelangelo, his first painting, even an Ensor and many more.

This is another excellent reason to live in Fort Worth, TX. There are several world-class museums and the Kimbell is one of the best of the best. The current exhibition features the private collection of a local family whose influence on the city has been felt in many ways. It was known only to a few that they were collectors... More

The Kimbell Art Museum is in our opinion the number one destination in the entire Dallas Fort Worth geographical area. The collection is large and diverse. It includes, European old masters, Impressionist and Post Impressionist paintings, beautiful sculpture, ancient ruins art from around the world and an impressive ceramic and other media display from various Asian locales. Currently, the exhibit... More
