  • Wonderful yet compact museum. May be the best art museum in the southwest. Has quality pieces from every period.

  • The Kimbell Museum is notable for both its arched design by famous architect Louis Kahn as well as its high quality of mostly European paintings from the Renaissance to Impressionism and Picasso...

  • This is another tiny but mighty museum in the US. I don't consider this museum as a big one but they have such a great collection. I am a big fan of European paintings and was surprised at quantity of them. Especially, there were enough impressionism. I loved this museum so much so went 2 days in a row. I was lucky to be there while exhibition of 'Turner's Modern World' was ongoing. Highly recommend to anyone who's visiting Fort Worth, TX.
  • It’s definitely worth to visit the Kimbell Art Museum. The museum has always interesting exhibitions. Beside the museum itself, the surrounding area is beautiful and good for a walk or for taking some nice pictures! Especially during evening hours it’s a quiet and beautiful place to stay for a moment
  • The new “Slay” exhibition as a part of the permanent collection should be bringing crowds. It is not everyday that a Gentileschi and a Wiley are hanging in the same space. This museum only exhibited non American artists until now. I ended up with some free time on a recent Friday and had an amazing visit. Did you know that they have Michaelangelo’s first painting? The permanent collection here is outstanding. There are so many artists from the traditional artistic canon. The gift shop has so many amazing art books to choose from. They cafe has pleasant options for food and wine. I happened to stop by when a live guitarist was playing for a small audience. It really made for a special experience. Another treasure in Fort Worth’s Cultural District.
  • One of my favorite places to visit in Fort Worth. Always clean and organized. A bit expensive, but that is to be expected. Every time I have visited, there is a decent amount of people. Buy the membership, its worth it!
  • Loved visiting the Kimbell Museum while in Fort Worth. Beautiful art on display, activities for the kids and the app that you are able to install is a huge bonus. We were also able to purchase some great prints of our favorite works. We enjoyed getting a bite at the cafe and sitting in the beautifully landscaped and shaded courtyard.
