Not as well known as the nearby Kimbell, but a must-see. Great collection of American Southwestern art in particular.

This is one of my favorite Museums. They have great collections of both Fredric Remington and Charles Russell. It is the place to go to see great western art.

Enjoyable outing. Friendly staff, plenty of quiet corners to sit and contemplate. Grounds are well kept and enjoyable. Special exhibits and permanent collection well worth the visit.,.

Good example of western art seem to be the mainstay. It's not a great museum by any means but it is very nice, always quiet like it should be.

If you love Remington, Russell and classic Western artists, this is a must see. The facility is beautiful, there's a library showcasing Remington and Russell sketches and personal stories, great lighting and some nice surprises. Plan on a leisurely afternoon.

This small museum is a treasure. The permanent exhibit is wonderful, as far as I'm concerned. I'm a big fan of American art, landscapes, Western Art and early American art. Their are some beautiful works here. And its always free!

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
