The Kimbell Art Museum is amazing, and with its new addition wing to the museum, it has become even better. From Master's to the first Michelangelo painting, to Asian art, the Kimbell has it all. I love going to it, and stop in at the museum every chance I get. Plus, now it's free for the permanent collection, so it... More

I've been coming to the Kimbell since I was a child and have always enjoyed it's design and permanent collection. The exhibits that the Kimbell manages to procur are incredible and they have thankfully exposed me to many different cultures and art forms throughout my life. A great Fort Worth institution and a treasure for the country!

My wife had seen the Samurai Exhibit earlier this month and wanted me to see it before it left next week. It was well worth it. There was so much new I learned from the exhibit; the composition of the armor, the unique masks and the small details like the position of the stirrups on the horse. I was taken... More

We only did the European art collection, but WOW, it is fantastic! I love art and the moment we entered the first hall and saw Picasso, Braque, Miro, etc., I knew this was going to be a great museum and it was. Each new hall we entered contained numerous gems by the world's greatest artists. One of my new favorites... More

This exhibit is amazing! The warfare armor is exquisitely intricate, stunningly beautiful, and effective for its time, repelling arrows, swords, or bullets. Exhibit items cover 700 years: 1185 to 1868. Most dramatic are 3 full-size horses with riders in full armor. Once you see the helmets, masks, and breastplates, you will understand where the inspiration for Darth Vader's outfit originated.... More

This is one of my favorite art museums in the country. It's always fresh and yet consistent. I've been visiting since I was a kid and have always felt fulfilled by the experience.

Loved it! It is a smallish collection but there must be an example of every great artist you have ever heard of. We also took in the temporary Samurai armor exhibit and had a neat guided tour from a docent. The exhibit was half priced on Tuesdays and the Kimbell itself is FREE! It must have a great endowment.

Stunning architecture, a splendid collection, perfect place to soak up a couple hours of culture on a hot day. Dessert and coffee in the café mid-afternoon very pleasant. Fantastic book store. Convenient parking.

I recently visited the Kimball Art Museum and am glad that I did. It is comprised of two buildings that will take on average 1-2 hours to go through. There is no cost for admission. This museum is packed with art from such masters as Degas, Cezanne and Monet as well as Michelangelo's "The Torment of Saint Anthony". If you... More

Without doubt one of the best art collections of all usa. With a visit to the two rooms you can tour the art world beautifully. The cafe area is simply amazing!
