About these ratings

The Kimbell Art Museum has earned a reputation as one of the top small museums in the world. The facility itself is a work of art, complete with vaults and skylights and a sculpture garden designed by prominent Japanese-American artist, Isamu Noguchi. And despite its modest size, this museum is a must-see for any art buff: The permanent collection houses works that span history and features artists ranging from El Greco and Rembrandt to Monet and Picasso.

Although art aficionados were already impressed by the original Kahn building, which was constructed in 1972, the addition of the Piano Pavilion (named for Italian architecht Renzo Piano, who helped design Paris' famous Centre Pompidou) has made the Kimbell feel less cramped, recent visitors say. The new section of the museum — which opened in November 2013 — now houses parts of the permanent collection, including Asian and European Art, as well as some traveling exhibitions.

Located in Fort Worth's Cultural District and accessible via car or the No. 2 T Bus, Kimbell Art Museum is open every day except Monday, though hours vary. On Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, doors stay open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; on Fridays, the museum welcomes visitors from noon to 8 p.m.; and on Sundays, the museum is open from noon to 5 p.m. Entry to and guided tours of the permanent collection is always free, but you will have to pay to explore and tour special exhibits.
