  • A true treasure in Ft worth. One of the best art museums ever and it's free to go to.. so is parking. The Remington's alone are amazing. great museum definitely great place to teach the kids about art
  • A great smaller museum. Regretably, I didn't get to see their permanent collection since I went there only for a quick visit to the exhibits but even my short time there was enjoyable. If you're in the area it's definitely worth popping into for a bit.
  • What a Fort Worth gem! On a whim we visited the Amon. On Thursday’s it’s open late & free. Not busy at all despite spring break. If you want to see beautiful things or a/c check out the museum
  • Visited, because a friend recommended it. My son was looking for some inspiration on Western art. We both enjoyed the large selection of pieces. It is SO much bigger than it looks from the outside!
  • This is a gorgeous museum. Best collection of western art I know. You think you're done and then there's more. Don't miss the Charles Russell letters.
