  • This is a really great place. We take our little kids here in their strollers and then when we've seen the good stuff they have the reward of the kids play space which has really creative toys. They've got an early Michaelangelo and some amazingly old Egyptian and Babylonian pieces. And for free!
  • I went with my three homeschooled children ages 9, 11 and 15 and we all loved it. We toured the regular exhibits which are all free. Parking is free too. The girls were completely engaged due to the audio tour guides the museum will give you if asked, again free of charge. You punch the number posted next to the painting, hold it up to your ear, and hear a description. There are a lot of pieces marked with a family icon too and those were especially wonderful, with actors playing characters and sound effects that really led them, and me!, to appreciate the art in such an engaging way. My 15 year old's attitude towards art museums was completely turned around and now is asking to go back. On the way home, all anyone wanted to talk about it art. It was awesome!
  • I have been to many museums all over Europe, and the Kimbell Art Museum is one of my favorites. Their permanent collections has paintings that rival many "famous" museums. Also, their visiting collections are wonderful. Highly recommend.
  • Very disappointing...the young woman at the front desk could not be bothered to give us any information about the exhibits and where to begin; merely pointed and did not offer any brochures or maps...too busy on her cell phone..... We visited the permanent exhibit but felt like there was more that we were missing....then we went to the Amon Carter museum and it was a completely opposite experience...the staff could not have been more helpful and all of the attendants smiled or greeted you when you entered a room.. Kimbell...take note: your employees/volunteers need some training!
  • Really awesome place! Most of the exhibits are completely free. They feature art from some notable artists, such as Michaelangelo and Picasso, and art from lots of different cultures and time periods. Great place to spend the morning or afternoon if you have any interest at all in art. The complex is gorgeously designed, inside and out. One of my favorite places to visit in Ft. Worth
