The museum has good free parking, and it has free admission. Inside, the interior is spacious,and well planned .The exhibits are of great interest to those who are interested in getting a good grounding in American art,with a 19 th century bias, albeit the 20th and 21st centuries are also featured. Pay special attention to the bronzes and paintings of... More

Very nice collection of a wide variety of artists. Of the many area art museums,this one has the best collection in my opinion. We came as part of a group visiting the art museums and private collections. Well presented and some of the best, most insightful descriptions I've read.not just an artist bio, but insights into the piece.

Amon Carter, the original publisher of the Fort Worth Star Telegram, was a generous benefactor to the city. His collection of western art, including many works by Remington and Russell are showcased in this museum, donated by him to the city of Fort Worth.

We spent more than the usual time in this lovely, spacious museum and were so pleased with the exhibits. The fine sculptures, the many Frederic Remington paintings, the easy pace because there no massive crows to push through - so enjoyable in every way. Fort Worth has a distinctly laid-back atmosphere and to find a parking place near the hotel... More

My wife suggested an afternoon of culture in Fort Worth. We visited the Fort Worth museums. The Amon Carter was not crowded and all people we met were courteous and helpful. I've seen most of the art as many as eight or nine times and do also enjoy the western art on the main floor by Remington and/or Russell. Somewhat... More

A wonderful collection of American art, and there is something for every member of the family. We took our 11 year old grandson to the AC Museum during our Ft. Worth visit, and it was a highlight of the trip. Interesting art, a great museum gift store, and the added bonus of no admission fee....all good reasons to include the... More

Admittedly, I did not know what to expect, but this turned out to be one of my most interesting and exhilarating, non-planned side trips ever! I thoroughly enjoyed the entire museum, but especially the multitude of western sculptures by Remington and Russell. Even the building: a beautiful Phillip Johnson architectural gem. And a great gift shop, too. Next time in... More
