The last day of the popular Impressionism exhibit was probably not the ideal introduction to this museum, since it was REALLY crowded. Still, the art was lovely and the audio tour was very helpful. Our group was only there for the one exhibit, and it whetted my appetite to see more. Even with the Stock Show nearby, we still found... More

Took the opportunity to go see the "Faces of Impressionism" from the Musee' d' Orsay last weekend. This collection has some of the most important impressionist pieces ever assembled in one place. The only way to see this collection again would be to travel to France. I wanted to take my daughter, who has a natural inclination for art, to... More

The quality of the museum's exhibits is nothing short of amazing! We just viewed the "Faces of Impressionism". What an extraordinary exhibit this was! To see so many wonderful works of art in one place was such a treat! We always eat at The Buffet, and that's always a treat, too! If you become a member of the Kimbell for... More

Ft. Worth should be so proud of their free museums! This building itself is a work of art. We parked in the free underground structure, making the visit a breeze. The art itself is a joy. The Michelangelo painting from his teenage years is worth it all--who knew? There were many other revelations of beauty in the museum. And the... More

We saved a page from the Texas Monthly magazine last fall, and planned to visit the Kimbell Art Museum's Faces of Impressionism exhibit on our return to TX in January. We got to the museum later than we would have liked, parked on the opposite side, and had to go through the main building and across the beautifully landscaped garden... More

I cannot rate the Impressionists exhibition highly enough. It was without a doubt a collection of some the most impressive works of art I've seen. The museum itself is a work of art too. The staff are so very helpful, professional and friendly. It was my first visit to the museum, but it is definitely my last.

The building is a work of art in itself. The small venue makes it an easily enjoyable excursion with world class exhibits.

The Kimbell Art Museum is worth a visit if you are looking for something to do indoors while in Fort Worth. It actually has quite a bit of art and I think you will be surprised by what it has to offer. They are constantly having evening get togethers as well if you are looking for a great date idea!

The display of the Impressionists Portraits from the Musee d'Orsay is wonderful! Such beautiful portraits by Monet, Renoir, Cezanne, and others. Very crowded but worth it. Be sure to rent the audio gadgets as you get such detail of the paintings.

I've heard--just about forever--about the Louis Kahn building that is the Kimbell Art Museum. And by forever I mean at least 30 years. The organization is comparatively new: the art collection was begun in the 1930s and the Kahn building was commissioned in 1966 and opened in 1972. The collection is choice but small--only about 350 works, mainly European Old... More
