Every time I spend time in Fort Worth, I try to visit this museum! I enjoy visiting it any time of year, but especially on chilly or rainy days. There is a variety of types of art to look at.

The building itself is a treasure of contemporary architecture. The collection is timeless and has something to offer everyone. The exhibitions are contemporary and relevant. Please do not miss this one!

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.

Amon Carter is a well laid out museum with easy access, ample parking, elevators and a beautiful lawn for picnics! If you are looking for a free outing in an air conditioned environment, this is a pleasant experience. We enjoyed the sculptures as well.

This wonderful museum is often overshadowed by its neighbor, the Kimbell Art Museum, and the newer Museum of Modern Art, yet in some ways I like it better. It began as the home for the western art collection of the Amon Carter family, and it contains many iconic Remington and Russell paintings, drawings and bronzes along with other western artists...

If you love Russell and Remington, this is a must see. Beautifully executed and maintained, the collection was built initially around Mr. Carter's western art collection. It has since evolved to celebrate American art and is definitely worth the trip if you're in the Fort Worth area.

Beautiful free museum of American Art from fabulous Russell and Remington pieces to contemporary photo exhibits. Everything is thoughtfully presented - a wonderful experience. When visiting the Ft. Worth Museum district - don't skip this treasure.
