  • Worth a visit to see the fabulous collection of exhibits by Remington and Russell - surely the finest recorders of the American West

  • Great collection of art. Very diverse and something for everyone. Knowledgeable staff and enthusiastic guides.
  • 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.
  • Nice museum, I liked the African, Egyptian and Mexican art exhibits the most. Nice atmosphere, cafĂ© on site outdoor piano pavilion.
  • Almost a forgotten gem, most of my friends who like art won't go here because they only house American art works, but it's there loss. This place has beautiful architecture, with a wide variety American history, especially that of Western America. Just fantastic.
