Permanent collection is free. Payed extra for the Impressionist exhibit. Buildings are great, very open and modernist but not obnoxiously so. Great mix of European art with some African, pre Columbian and eastern thrown in. Real stars are the European art. Great selections and all are stars. Some museums you have to sift though a lot of average stuff but... More

Although I am not that enamored with the Kimball's concrete barrage structure, the exhibits are wonderful. The latest impressionist portrait exhibit is well thought out and gives the viewer a delightful look at the portrait genre as seen by the impressionists. It includes paintings by the impressionist masters but also some gems by lesser known painters. The audio tour and... More

We went to the Kimbell to see the Impressionist portraits from the Musee D'Orsay. The exhibit itself was quite good, since you can wander through the room and revisit things without disturbing anyone. The audio tour was also insightful. The museum consists of 2 building, The new addition by Renzo Piano is great looking, and houses the special exhibits and... More

Went to the Kimbell to see the Impressionist exhibit and enjoyed the rest of the museum. Beautiful building with interesting architecture. 75% of the museum is devoted to pre-Columbian, Asian and old master's are (none of which I care for), but one section was filled with lovely pieces from Picasso, Munch, Monet and all the other great artists. Nice place... More

Easy access, plenty of parking, outstanding art collection. This is a great place to kill a couple of hours viewing world class art work in a fabulous facility.

I've been to many museums and besides the Louvre and Musee D'Orsay, this is my favorite! I really enjoyed how the museum was laid out. It was bright and welcoming. It wasn't pretentious like some can be. I really enjoyed that it was free to get in except for the special exhibits. I will be returning there in December to... More

The museum looks pretty dull from the outside but the inside makes up for it. We saw the "Faces of Impressionism" which is $16 for seniors and $18 for adults. This was a much larger exhibit than I had expected and saw many new impressionist paintings...you will not see landscapes as this is about portraits. I was disappointed that no... More

My husband and I attended the "Faces of Impressionism" exhibit this past weekend at Kimball. It was our first time visiting this venue, or the cultural district in all our visits to Fort Worth. Of course, the exhibit was beautiful, but the way the Museum presented it added to the educational value. We so appreciated the audio tour tools that... More

Really enjoy the architecture. The board seems to attract very interesting exhibits from Monet to samurai armor. While you're in the area visit the zoo.

Visited to see the special impressionist portrait exhibit which was very good, but as is described it is all portraits. You won't see waterlillies, haystacks, or any of the other well known landscape pieces by these artists. This was our first visit since the Piano addition was opened and it was quite nice for viewing. Also visited the regular galleries... More
