Kimbell Art Museum Reviews
To be able to slowly saunter around, leisurely allowing brilliant works of art, some thousands of years old, to permeate your soul, that is what the Kimbell freely offers the visitors and residents of Fort Worth. Even the very building is a work of art, walk slowly by the reflecting pool and search for the hidden rock garden. I've been in love with the Kimbell for 30 years, since as a child I first looked, wide-eyed at the works of Monet, a special exhibit they were holding. Thus began my love for art. I encourage you to visit the free exhibit at very least, and find out when an exhibition that interests you is coming and go to that. But just go.
One of the things I love from Fort Worth is that most of the attractions are free. This is without exception one if the nicest free attractions. The paintings of the realism era are gorgeous. Feels like if they were pictures of how good they are painted. The prehispánic collection and Asian collection are worth seeing. Take some beautiful pictures in their gardens and fountain outside the museum.
