    A friend and I visited the museum on a Saturday. Entrance fee was reasonable, especially with the senior discount. It was not overly crowded which is nice. Enjoyed the art, of course. The gift shop wa...  more »

    Two word answer: "Oil Money." (Or "old money" -- take your pick.) Very impressive architecture, exquisite dining, in a special place you would expect to see in New York, not Cowtown. But unlike New Yo...  more »

    Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth is in a group of museums that are all fantastic. I was there on Saturday and Sunday and had no problem parking which was free.  more »

    I love the permanent and traveling collections, but the not so hidden gem are the Chamber Music Society of Fort Worth concerts that take place at the auditorium on Saturday afternoons. They are absolutely mesmerizing and unbelievably affordable. I take my whole family and the kids are doing better in school because of these priceless events.

    A really nice museum to walk through! It's on the smaller side which I like. We were able to walk through the whole thing and enjoy it. There's free parking right in front of the museum too. We look forward to returning here soon!

    Beautiful building and grounds. Unique exhibits. Intimate, comfortable theater. Great restaurant. In the museum district.

    I honestly think this is the best modern art museum in the country. The building is almost more impressive than the artwork. Make sure you go on Sunday, it's typically free.

    Museum is nice, but some of the art is boring, and it's disappointing that there's only a couple of pieces to represent each of the different styles and artists and types of modern art. Would like to see displays with a lot more pieces per subject matter. And, I'm really not impressed with the obscene pieces that have been up for years. Those need to come down.
