The Kimbell Art Museum now offers $3 special exhibition admission for Texas Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) recipients, beginning with Monet: The Late Years, opening on June 16. This new ticket price is offered in collaboration with the Institute of Museum and Library Services’ (IMLS) Museums for All program, which encourages individuals from all backgrounds to experience the joy and lifelong learning evoked by museum visitation.
Claude Monet, one of the founders of French Impressionism, is one of the movement’s most prolific artists. Monet: The Late Years is the first exhibition in more than 20 years dedicated to the final phase of his career. Through more than 50 paintings, the exhibition traces the evolution of Monet’s practice from 1913, when he embarked on a reinvention of his painting style that led to increasingly bold and abstract works, up to his death in 1926. Assembled from major public and private collections in Europe, the United States and Asia, Monet: The Late Years includes more than 20 examples of Monet’s beloved water-lily paintings. In addition, the exhibition showcases many other extraordinary and unfamiliar works from the artist’s final years, several of which are being seen for the first time in the United States.
“Since the Kimbell’s founding, it has been our mission to provide a welcoming museum experience for all,” commented Eric M. Lee, director of the Kimbell. “We are very pleased to expand our offerings with $3 admission for Texas SNAP program recipients and their family members and to inaugurate the program with the opportunity to experience some of Monet’s most celebrated masterpieces in person. I hope that the exhibition and all that the Kimbell has to offer will prompt lasting connections and ongoing participation.”
To receive the $3 discounted admission for each accompanying family member, Texas SNAP recipients can simply show their Lone Star Card at the box office. Regular admission for Monet: The Late Years ranges from $14 to $18 with free admission for children under six. The Kimbell’s collection is always free to view.

This new reduced ticket price is part of the museum’s ongoing mission to provide an exceptional experience for visitors from all backgrounds, ages and abilities. Recently, the Kimbell was named one of 15 museum finalists for IMLS’s 2019 Gold Medal for museums and libraries with an innovative approach to providing an inclusive experience. IMLS announced this honor in April 2019. In addition to reduced admission, the Kimbell also provides a variety of accommodations, resources and public programs to help support meaningful experiences for all visitors.
