  • 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!
  • 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!
  • A Great Selection Of Paintings and Artifacts from many different periods of time. The staff is very courteous and it is FREE to enter. A lot of people bring their kids here, and there are several.places to just sit and talk or have a beverage.
  • One of Fort Worth's treasures. Phenomenal architecture, great exhibits, strong permanent collection, excellent programming, fantastic catering/food services, remarkable staff. If you're visiting, or even if you live in Fort Worth, go to the Kimbell.
  • The collection at this museum is quite impressive. Egyptian sculpture, framed Mondrians, Cezannes, Monets, and the first of only 4 framed paintings by Michelangelo - The Torment of Saint Anthony - were just a few of the highlights for me. And the building housing the collection is a piece of art itself, designed by Louis Kahn. Definitely worth a trip - or two!
