Awesome museum!
Aug 2021
First class museum with original Rembrandt, Miro, etc... Even the Gift shop is exceptional. The cafeteria has some box lunches that are actually pretty good. And the admission is free! An awesome museum!

Art For Art's Sake
Jul 2021
This is a beautiful museum. Admission is free, so if you have any interest in art at all there is no reason to not go. I do want to note a couple of things that surprised me. First, the museum's total collection consists of only 350 pieces (not all of them on display, as far as I could tell). I had thought the Kimbell was the showcase art museum of a major city. It is not. It has to be understood as part of a constellation of museums in Fort Worth's cultural district, each contributing to a single showcase experience incorporating them all. The Kimbell alone is not an equivalent to the major museums in cities like Philadelphia and Houston. Second, there is no particular order to the arrangement of pieces on the walls. At least none that I could tell. So you will be dancing among the centuries as you go. One experiences each piece in relative isolation, rather than as part of art history or a particular movement (though the wall labels are blessedly detailed). That is certainly a legitimate way to experience art - some would say the best way. But it is not how larger museums are laid out. All in all, the Kimbell will encourage a direct encounter with each piece and appreciation for each artist. And you can move through the entire permanent collection on display without totally exhausting your aesthetic muscles. So I highly recommend a visit.

Nice museum experience
Jun 2021
We went to the Kimbell Museum to participate in their afternoon tea service and then walked around. The tea service was a fun event and something our teenagers seemed to enjoy. When do you get to dress up and have a tea service in a museum? It cost a little bit but was worth it. The museum itself was really nice. It is a small museum but they have a lot of the big names in art. This would be a great museum for kids that don't like walking around museums (since it is so small). They have two buildings but only one is available to walk around unless you are paying to see the exhibition which we weren't. I would like to say that their parking garage is the nicest parking garage I have ever seen. If you go, make sure you park in the garage and you'll understand what I am talking about. One painting worth seeing is Michelangelo's "Torment of Saint Anthony" since it is his first painting and it's just pretty cool seeing something by Michelangelo.

Easy To Navigate
Apr 2021
The Kimbell has a very strong collection of art works and it is very easy to navigate. The sculpture collection is quite strong. Also, I learned about artworks which were new to me such as the very early painting by Michelangelo.
The gardens are great on a nice day
Parking is readily available and conveneint.

Very good collection, well curated...kudos!
May 2021
Beautiful collection although the Piano building was closed so our entrance was gratis. Certainly enough to see that we didn't feel shortchanged. I really appreciate how they had all styles of art represented from incredibly ancient to more recent and from well known artists. Ate lunch in the cafe, yum!

Great Museum, Incredibly Inconsiderate of their Customers Time
Apr 2021
I went to FT Worth from Dallas to see the Egyptian exhibit. I have been to Kimbell years ago and had good memories of their exhibit. When I got there, I was informed there was a 1 1/2 hr wait in line to get in. They did not even have a sign up sheet for my place in line so I could go look at the other exhibits until I could go in to the Egyptian exhibit.

It is incredible to me that they do not have a system for reducing the wait, which would be very easy if anyone thought that wasting peoples time was a concern of theirs. There must have been a thousand or more people going thru that day and they wasted 1 1/2 hours of every one of them. That is 62 full 8 hour days wasted for only ONE calendar. That is so discourteous it boggles the mind!!!

All that needs to be done (which other more courteous venues have done) is to have an online sign up reservation sheet with 15 minute increments so that people could show up about the time they could go in. It is not rocket science.

I would encourage everyone to write a review. It is really a shame that a museum with such a good product would treat its customers so poorly.

Big City Museum
May 2021
This big city museum has lots of treasures, a sign that local benefactors have made sure that this community has a great art institution. It is a little bit of this and a little bit of that, typical of a big city museum. The display space is lovely and impressive. Great place to spend a couple of hours.

Wonderful Exhibits
Feb 2021
We enjoyed all of the exhibits at the museum. We wish that the museum attendants could be a little more tolerable of children that are well behaved but accidentally let their masks slip below their noises for a few seconds or point to a painting, standing five feet away while holding a map. Their parents are doing their very best to expose them to works of art and it would be nice if the museum employees would recognize that effort and be a little more friendly.
