A Highlight of our trip

Excellent art - great exposure to western culture. In particular the Laura Wilson photo exhibit is not to be missed.

This is our favorite restraint in Fort Worth, TX ! Food is excellent, usually something different to choose from, always a unique soup and wonderful salads. Wine is available plus fun desserts to choose from to end the meal . Great chef, staff--goes with the world class museum!!

The Amon Carter Museum is not the same as the Kimbell but it has its own unique place in the art world. It is within walking distance of the Kimbell, so visit it and you will see what I mean. Remington and Russell never grow old and the permanent collection is free, so don't miss this museum!

The Amon Carter does not charge an entry fee. Parking is not hard. This is a place you can take your children as long as you are willing to watch them and actually monitor/correct behavior as needed. Many pieces of the Old West are housed here. History buffs will have a wonderful time.

Fort Worth is a western art paradise and I fell in love with the Amon Carter. Oils, watercolors and sculpture that are exquisite and fun to look at. No charge for either admission or parking on top of beautiful western themed art.

Just went with family and teens, and we loved it! Great permanent collection and very interesting photography exhibit of the rugged West. Free and Elegant way to spend a cloudy or cold day. Very inspiring Art and you can't beat the price. Follow it with a visit to Sundance Square for a great dinner and a great day!!

The Amon Carter museum is a tradition in Fort Worth. The permanent collection is eclectic and a treasure, and their special exhibits throughout the year are just that--very special! They are closed Mondays.

There are two notable traveling exhibits right now. The Laura Wilson photography is spectacular. I wish I could photograph people as well as she does. The American Folk Art exhibit is worth seeing. Much of it is on loan from the Folk Art Museum in New York City.

This is an amazing museum, and it's free to the public, but you should allow yourself time to see it all. We only had a short amount of time, so we focused on the American Western Art. The paintings and sculptures by artists such as Remington & Russell are not to be missed. Awesome exhibits!!
