Good collection of American Art. We wanted to see paintings by Remington in particular, and enjoyed the opportunity to see them here. It is just steps from the Kimbell museum, and was also free of charge. I greatly enjoyed seeing the imagery we all associate with the cowboy era.

Kimbell have the old Masters of Europe. Amon Carter have the Americans well represented - the Remington and Russell permanent collections invoke emotions, bad versus good, nature versus man, frankly, for us, more meaningful than Europeans Masters from non-expert perspective. We can relate to the art of the Americas. On the far contrast side - this museum had (not sure... More

So, I went to Fort Worth to see cowboys and steers - live. And maybe to buy myself a stetson (I didn't in the end, but not because they weren't good quality nor was they're a lack of choice). But my local friend guide took me to an art museum first. What?! I'm eternally thankful to that friends for giving... More

A Beautiful, modern facility, art shows vary throughout the year. Traveling exhibits are hosted. As name states, American art is prominent, painting and sculptor. Some occassional seating in the galleries.

this is a very nice museum and especially on Russell and Remington. We have been to serval museums that had art work by both Remington and Russell and this one is extremely nice with excellent presentations. Well worth your visit. The grounds and building are well managed and maintained. Great asset for Ft. Worth

We went there to fill some spare time we had and WOW, are we glad we did! Their collections of Frederic Remington and Charles Russell were fantastic. Many other world famous artists were featured too, many were from Texas. The facility was new and fabulous which added to the experience. This is time well spent if you have a couple... More

Great place to see works depicting the American West in its many shapes and forms. There are true cowboy art by Russell and Remington, but also great photography by Edward Weston and exquisite paintings by Georgia O'Keeffe.

the artwork was gorgeous, Remington and Russel were fabulous painters of the cowboy genre and it was a treat to see their works. the Museum staff were a little more than annoying about telling you to not touch anything. If there was real danger of me molesting a painting and not just pointing something out, I could see it. they... More
