About Kimbell Art Museum, Fort Worth

This is a very popular museum that is known for the rare paintings in store. They have a small but a very fine collection of masterpieces dating from centuries ago to recent times. The name Kimbell was kept after the names of Kay and Velma Kimbell whose private collections were the 1st exhibits of this museum. They also donated a hefty amount for the relocation of these exhibits in a permanent building.

The main collections of the museum apart from the many expert pieces are-

  • The design of the museum building itself and most remarkably the natural silvery wash on the ceiling.
  • The ‘Torment of St. Anthony’ which is known to be the 1st painting of the great Michelangelo and also the only one on exhibit of the Americas.
  • The paintings of Friedrich that is hardly found in USA.
  • The Classical period arts from Egypt, Assyria, Greece and Rome.
  • The Asian collection comprising of sculptures, paintings, bronzes, ceramics and works of other decorative art pieces.
  • African collection with fine pieces from Nigeria, Angola and other Democratic States. The most attractive is a piece of Oceanic Art represented by a Maori Figure.

Kimbell Art Museum, Fort Worth Reviews

  • I visited today for the family festival and all the staff was extremely nice and helpful. The activities were wonderful; my kids were so entertained and super excited about face painting. They had at least six artists on site so there was no wait at all! We'd usually visit during the summer because they have a special room with lots of toys, puzzles, and books, so it's a great place to go to avoid the summer temperatures. The museum is free and has tons of parking around it. We enjoy this museum so much!

  • Kimbell Art Museum is a great place to explore and bonus: it's free (with the exception of some exhibits). Parking is easy, staff are very friendly, and the layout is clean and appealing. A feature I didn't know about until recently was the children's playroom in the piano pavilion. It has a felt fabric wall, tons of books, blocks, and fun colored carpet squares. It's also very clean and they provide sanitizing wipes. The only downside for very little ones is that the glass walls can look too clean and they'll just walk right into them. On Saturdays they have a free art class for up to 20 kids. Overall, Kimbell is a great museum and I love that it's free!

  • They have a lot of beautiful art pieces. It's free to all unless you are looking to attend a special art exhibit. I recommend this museum to anyone who loves art and wants to learn more about different pieces. They have different pieces from different areas and different times periods. I enjoyed the pieces from 400AD and so on. There are some pieces I found interesting because of the way they were painted. But definitely take your family to this art museum and enjoy the beauty

  • The Kimbell Art Museum usually has very good exhibits. However, this one about Asia has a little bit lacking. Mostly just a private collection of outer wear, porcelains and Jade. If you go on half-price day you may feel you get your money's worth. However, I would not pay full price for this exhibit.

  • My daughter and I visited the European collection yesterday. I didn't know what to expect but I was very pleasantly surprised to find that parking was very close and easy to obtain, the gallery itself was compact in size but filled with marvelous art works that I was amazed at and enjoyed very much. We didn't stay long because my daughter was there to fulfill a requirement for a college course she is taking, but I definitely want to come back and view their other collections. And it is FREE! There's no way to beat this combination.
