Amon Carter Museum has hosted many exhibits by artists who paint, sculpt and write about the old west. Paintings and exhibits revealing the life of the cowboys, ranchers and Native Americans are frequently sponsored and the museum itself has its own collection. Artists will love this and historians will be amazed.

The Amon Carter is not for everyone. As its name makes clear - this is a museum for American art. You won't find a Picasso or French impressionists here. But you will find an outstanding collection of real American art. A large collection of Remington and Russell works anchor the museum. Building on this are works from many other American... More

There is much western art housed here in addition to a fabulous photography collection and many traveling art collections. The building is first class, the art is internationally acclaimed, and the staff are 'Fort Worth friendly'.

The Amon Carter Museum in Ft. Worth's museum district is the best place to go if you like Western art. Finest collection of Remington's and Russell's. And it's free!

Wonderful works include paintings and sculpture by Remington and Charles Russell, among others. No admission. Check out the gift shop for unusual items, too.

The permanent art was great. We were in Ft. Worth for the Rodeo, and the museum was in the process of changing exhibits, so much of it was closed off. You would thing they would time the changeover better. The museum is free, so you can't complain too much.

The Remington and Russel bronze sculptures were well worth visiting but the rest of the museum was mediocre.

Exciting well-known cowboy art by paintings and sculpture, mostly by Frederic Remington and Charles M. Russel. Displayed well. Nice guards. Adequate light and space.

I would have given Amon Carter an average rating because I don't really connect with what I would call western art, meaning art depicting scenes of cowboys and Indians, etc. However, I visited the museum with several people who are fans, and they were able to help me appreciate the pieces through their appreciation. In light of that experience, I... More

This is a good museum--striking building, city view and free parking. The art is wonderful, particularly the western US artwork. Indeed, seeing the Russell exhibit led us to visit his home & studio in Montana this summer. Other parts of the collection are a pleasure to see, as well. We've been here several times & have been particularly impressed by... More
