  • It is a building of Phillip Johnson, from the Decade of 60, with good exhibitions, but outer space, with lots of activity, and support makes it special.

  • Really excellent museum. The changing exhibits are always high quality, and filled with great educational material/written descriptions that help me find a deeper appreciation for the artists on display (while many art museums do this, not all do it well). Staff is courteous and helpful, and the museum regularly puts on some great events. Also, if you just want to sit outside and take in a great view of downtown Fort Worth, their patio and garden is perfect.
  • The Amon Carter is a run by a fascist, sexist, chauvinistic group of egotistical men. They participate in sexual discrimination, and are no stranger to breaking labor laws. I do not support this museum, nor its culture of hate, which is a real shame because the museum has a wonderful collection of western art that will be perpetually marred by the discrimination and the ugly face of hate.
  • This was a very nice place to visit. Lot's of great art depicting the american west. The local is also great because you can see the entire Fort Worth skyline from the front garden.
  • I think the Carter often gets overlooked and plays third string to the Kimbell and Modern. This is quite unfair to the museum. It's worth a visit, always free, and the museum is fantastic stewards to the community. Not to miss if in FW.
  • Lots of Western art. Somewhat interesting. Worth a visit every few years.
