I grew up near and was in Chicago alot through my early 40's. So when I moved here, I knew nothing about Ft. Worth's Museum district. If you are visiting, take a day, and go to all three. Open your mind. It is significant. Parking ? easy. Traveling Exhibitions ? world class. Architecture ? beautiful. Museum owned and borrowed pieces... More

There is a real nice variety in their collection, you can see the entire collection in 1-2 hours, and it's free. Definitely worth the time.

This beautiful museum is located in the heart of the cultural district where you can walk from one museum to another. It houses collections of representative masterpieces from major periods of art history. For us, a highlight of the Kimbell has been its lectures. Last year we attended an evening presentation on the restoration of the Ghent Altarpiece! This year... More

If you haven't been to the Kimbell lately, then you haven't been to the Kimbell at all. I've been a fan for decades. Hands down they have the market on blockbuster art exhibitions in the Metroplex, but over the years we've only gotten to see small hints of what their own collection was like. All that has changed. In recent... More

Located very near Modern Art Museum in Forth Worth. It hosts a small but excellent art collection, as well as traveling art exhibitions, educational programs and an extensive research library. I highly recommend this museum.

This museum is a work of art in itself. Designed years ago with the goal of providing appropriate display venue for great artists, it has recently added an additional building that provides space and design for special exhibits. The collection of the museum is fascinating and the exhibits include mostly collections of classic art and those exhibits that are traveling... More

The Kimbell is one of the most surprising venues west of the Mississippi. Walking through the galleries feels like one is walking through the Met in New York - just on a smaller, friendlier scale. The architecture of the original building is outstanding and a classic in itself. The new Renzo Piano pavilion is a perfect complement to the original... More

Designed by Louis Kahn, the original Kimbell Art Museum is a beautiful building that houses a fine collection of pre-20th century art. The Kimbell's own collection makes way about 4 times a year for special exhibits on loan from art institutions and private collections. A controversial addition to the property, the Renzo Piano Pavilion, opened about two years ago. The... More

Fort Worth's best kept secret is it's many high quality museums. The collections and architecture are stunning.
