I have visited all the museums of Europe and New York. None are any better than the Amon Carter. It has the best collection of western art anywhere I have been, but also other great American art. It also houses a huge and diverse photography collection.

I have enjoyed visiting the Amon Carter Museum for years. The artwork is very interesting. I am not a big art lover but walking through the galleries looking at the sculptures and paintings is always a great way to spend a few hours.
