Some of the best Remington and Russell cowboy art and sculptures I have ever seen. Wide open inviting museum and it all was for free!

The current display is the Bingham art collection from Kansas. The free attractions, especially the Remington bronze collection and art are very nice.

The Carter houses one of the best, if not the best collection of American west art and photography. Their photography collection ranks second to no other place and the story it tells of the exploration and settlement of the American West is one not to be missed. Located in Fort Worth's cultural district, a visit to the Carter can, and... More

Amon Carter's philanthropic legacy was initially western art, and expanded to American art of many genres. This was my first visit. Upon entering the lobby, the first painting you see is Thomas Cole's masterpiece, The Garden of Eden. To your left is Frederic Remington's A Dash to the Timber, which established his early reputation as a pre-eminent artist of the... More

What an amazing museum. Eclectic variety of artists adorning their walls. Every room has something interesting to look at. I was surprised by the quality of the artists and the quantity of the beautiful pieces. It is a must see museum in Fort Worth.

If you are interested in art picturing the cowboy and native american era, then this is the place to go. We were treated to a guided tour which put everything into context for our UK party. Well worth a visit, so go and support it.

The museum was such a great surprise. Their collection of American artists goes from cowboy to contemporary to modern and includes some very famous paintings. The building is lovely and easy to navigate (I hate museums that feel like a maze), and the special exhibits are well curated and thought out. Definitely worth a visit if you're into art, and...

The Amon Carter Museum is yet another excellent addition to the cacophony of museums in Fort Worth. So much to see, it would be easy to miss this little museum, but don't. It specializes in Western Art (Remington, Russell) but there is far more than that there: Georgia O'Keefe, Charles Demuth, John Singer Sargent....and more. You can take in the... More
