  • This is an interesting museum to visit - when we visited it was dominated by exhibits by KAWS - who I like - if you don't you could be disappointed 
  • I was unimpressed with the permanent collection of the museum as well as the special exhibition, a KAWS retrospective. I did love the giant metal structuring outside: "Vortex" by Richard Serra. Be sur...  more »
  • We took our young kids here just to try it out. We went on a free day when the first floor was closed. The collection is so unique and they enjoyed it for 45 min. The structure, the walls, the pool, e...  more »

  • I love the Modern! Well first let me say that I'm all about the Arts and Culture community to begin with. I have seen many exhibits here and just recently I saw a movie at their Magnolia Theater. It was my first time viewing a movie there and was very surprised how big the theater is. I want to say it holds up to 250 people. There was a piano at the bottom on the floor of the theater so I assume they must have performances in the room which I think is pretty cool. I saw the Documentary, Miss Sharon Jones and it was awesome. The time before, I came to see the Kehinde Wiley exhibit which was absolutely amazing!!! I live in Dallas but if the artist is someone I'm into, I will definitely make the drive.
  • Beautiful space! The natural light and high ceilings provide a great atmosphere for viewing the artwork. In my opinion, the layout didn't flow too well. I kept feeling like I made a wrong turn and would miss a part of certain exhibitions. The gift shop did have small items that were not expensive. I appreciate that. Overall, a great museum!
  • This was my first time and I was blown away. It started with the friendly valet service ($10) and then the spectacular view of the beautiful building with a huge KAWS piece in the front. The building itself is a piece of art in itself. The view of the huge pons with the lawn in the background makes it look like the entire place is literally FLOATING. The KAWS exhibit was awe-inspiring!! It's a must-see! The permanent collection is beautiful as well. Very friendly staff...even when one of the gentleman asked me to step away from one of the pieces. In his defense I was way too close lol 😋 Admission is free on Sundays 😊
  • (There is a student price if you have a student ID, and its free to the public on Sundays) I come here often with my mom who is a member and always enjoy the exhibits. The modern also hosts an upscale restaurant and bar if you want to chat with the artsy community of Ft.Worth before enjoying the art. The Frank Stella exhibit was a favorite for me!
  • Beautiful building with a very solid collection, and generally well curated traveling shows. The cafe and bar are filled with friendly staff positioned on the edge of a gorgeous reflecting pool. Architecture students will appreciate the quality of the museums built environment, while art students will appreciate the care put into curated shows and events.
