So many world class museums, theaters and gardens that you can easily spend days exploring it all. And if you get hungry there are great places to eat right there. From the really first class restaurant in the Modern to the casual buffet at the Kimbell. Oh and there are multiple places to eat down 7th Street. The Amon Carter... More

This is an area of Ft. Worth that I love. It has been developed so just about anyone can walk from place to place. It is landscaped very beautiful and creates a peaceful Tour Walk. We loved it. The Modern Art Museum has a wonderful Cafe with great food overlooking a reflecting pool. There is one museum you have to... More

The Modern Art Museum and the Kimbell are the redeeming locations in a cultural district that is otherwise fatuous and pretentious. This area used to host such charm! And then the developers came in, tore down all the funky and cool buildings; the local businesses closed and now everything has been replaced by ridiculously overpriced "lofts" and pre-fab symmetry. Very... More

You'll find the Fort Worth Modern Art Museum, the Kimball Museum of Art, the Amon Carter Museum of American Art, the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History and the National Cowgirl... More

Many facilities in one location, parking was convenient and available and free. Some museums are free, check on the websites. I saw construction on the Kimbell, and anticipate the expansion.

Fort Worth has the plastic arts covered so much better than Dallas, and better than many other much bigger American cities. Three great museums line up in a picturesque row overlooking downtown. The Kimbell has an eclectic but very strong collection of paintings and artifacts in a treasure of a building by Louis Kahn, no being added onto by Renzo... More

...but on a per capita basis for art wealth, it kicks some butt. You will wonder how so much good stuff found its way to Cowtown. Start with The Modern and work your way North.
