Fort Worth’s art scene is a really big deal, and a major part of that fame is due to our Cultural District. We’ve been watching Fort Worth’s major museums closely, eagerly anticipating reopening details. This just came through from The Kimbell Art Museum, and we can’t wait to drop by.
The Kimbell will reopen to patrons on Saturday, June 20, with member preview days beginning Thursday, June 18. The museum has instituted new guidelines for staff and visitors that support state and local health and safety recommendations. While we pride ourselves on visitors’ personal experience and engagement in the museum, our new health and safety measures require the temporary suspension of certain activities and accommodations, as well as the addition of new visitor guidelines and staff protocols. See below or visit our website. We look forward to welcoming our visitors back in a safe and responsible way.
