If you thought Fort Worth was only about cowboy culture, you might be surprised to know that it has a world-class arts scene as well. For proof of this, you need to head over to the Cultural District, home to several prized cultural institutions, one of which includes the Louis Kahn and Renzo Piano-designed Kimbell Art Museum. The museum showcases around 350 works of art, ranging from classical antiquities to European masterpieces by artists such as Monet, Picasso and Matisse. Speaking of masterpieces, the Kimbell is where you'll find the only Michelangelo painting (The Torment of Saint Anthony) in the Americas. And the beauty isn't just found on the inside, the building itself is pretty awe-inspiring too. And of course, one of the best perks about it is that visitors can always access the museum's permanent collections without splashing the cash on an admission fee.
- Free Things to Do: "Located within a stone's throw from the Kimbell is the Amon Carter Museum of American Art, which is also always free as well as the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, which offers free admission on Sundays."
- Best for Free Things to Do Because: The Kimbell offers first-class art for every type of art lover.
