  • A must for visitors. Beautiful modern majestic building in a park like setting in the cultural districts. Wonderful selection of old masters artwork and varied traveling collection. This museum is a Fort Worth institution. Suggest you allow at least two hours for your visit.
  • The Amon Carter is a small museum, but it packs excellent exhibits. It is also free for everyone. It is peaceful and quiet, it has an amazing view of the skyline. Exhibits change regularly, so experience will depend on those exhibits. The American West was amazing. You have to see paintings up close because they are fantastic and unbelievable.
  • Wonderful free museum with a lovely collection. Staff is always helpful and visiting exhibits, which are also free, are often thoughtful and educational. The best view of Fort Worth too! Free little parking lot as well.
  • We signed up for the free Itty-bitty Art: Infant Massage class and had so much fun! The instructor was knowledgeable and our five-month-old loved getting a massage! Afterward we were able to explore the museum and it was awesome - I loved the Avedon exhibit.
  • The Amon Carter Museum is quite lovely. Wonderful architecture and great exhibits. I look forward to returning soon!
