  • We enjoyed our last trip for the most part and so did the kids, however the Modern Art Museum is quite small. With the exception of HAUNT, the exhibits that were on display were mostly the same we saw here about a year and a half ago -- there was actually a lot less on display this time around. I think there were probably more art cops standing guard than pieces to look after, which probably explains the entry cost. For $10/ea adult and $4/ea child for such a short visit, it's nice to go once, but we'll probably opt to go elsewhere in the future.
  • A BEAUTIFUL MUSEUM! Thought provoking permanent collections! Intriguing special exhibits! Lovely to simply stop in and relish the relaxing scene of their reflecting pool! Have always enjoyed lunching or having a drink at Cafe Modern within the museum when I’m in the area! Celebrating its 125th Anniversary!
  • Small museum with an incredible collection. Curated exhibits are top notch, thought provoking and diverse. Small gift area is well stocked and they play Magnolia sponsored art films for cheap on Sundays (Line starts about 30 minutes early). Great place to spend a Sunday.
  • Love it here! Awesome art! Great place for a fun and free date in downtown fort Worth. Some exhibits do cost money but the majority is free.
  • Amazing Museum. The exhibition of HAUNT was very cool, viewers discretion was advised, nonetheless it was very artistic. Excellent museum to visit, every one of the employees were very nice and helpful. Plenty of parking spots, and handicapped accessible.
