  • So proud to have this museum in Fort Worth. Their permanent collection is so impressive and it's totally free. Special exhibits here really are just that and sometimes it's the only place in the country chosen to showcase special works by some amazing artists. I'm so looking forward to the Monet exhibit this Fall. A great place to spend an afternoon. They also have such a wonderful lunch buffet with fresh soups, salads, sandwiches and quiche, which includes all the hot and cold beverages you can drink. Best bargain in town. You also get to dine among some beautiful works of art. Just love this place!
  • I'm not really into art but I had to go for a class assignment. Honestly it's kind of a surreal experience. It's incredible to think that an artist in Renaissance Italy worked on a painting that is now kept right there mere inches from you. Or a sculpture that dates to ancient Egypt, having survived thousands of years, is now there for us to appreciate. It's crazy. The staff is also incredibly knowledgeable and extremely helpful. Like I said, I'm not really into art, but they DEFINITELY are. I showed one of them a picture I took for my class (no flash allowed btw) and he recognized it immediately without even having to think about it. I sort of went into it thinking I'd be looking at something like modern art, but I couldn't have been more wrong. Very unique experience and I'd definitely go back just to take in the incredible history that is provided to us.
  • Good museum! Really enjoyed my visit. Cafe has reasonable priced pie and coffee. Beautiful, priceless pieces with friendly staff. Overall an exceptional day trip!
  • I have been coming to the Kimbell since the mid 70s. I love this place, especially the Louis Kahn building (worth seeing alone, it is a masterpiece of architecture!) The Kahn is still full of their beautiful permanent collection and thanks to Kay & Velma Kimbell, it will forever be FREE to the public!
  • Great museum! I love going here, lots of parking, beautiful architecture, and a variety of art in the main collection. I like what they bring through in the traveling exhibit space. Also really nice the admission is free to the main part of this museum!
