KIMBELL ART MUSEUM ACCESSIBILITY POLICY

The Kahn Building is accessible through the Kahn east entrance. The Piano Pavilion is accessible through the underground parking garage and from the group drop-off on Camp Bowie Boulevard. 

Please note that the Kahn west entrance is not wheelchair accessible. Most areas of the Kimbell Art Museum's campus are accessible to wheelchairs and people with limited mobility, but it's a good idea to call ahead about any mobility issues so that we can help make your visit as comfortable as possible. Call 817-332-8451 and press "0" for assistance.

To enter one building from the other via a wheelchair-accessible entrance, follow the sidewalk around Camp Bowie and Van Cliburn Way. A Special Assistance Vehicle (SAV) is available for visitors with mobility challenges who would like assistance in traveling from one building to the other. Visit the information desk in either building to request the SAV.
