Loved this charming museum. I love art that showcases the beauty of the USA's west and southwest. Many of the art pieces remind me of another favorite museum of mine - the Gilcrease Museum in Tulsa, OK.

I used to live in DFW so have been to the Amon Carter before. There is construction going on now and I hit a class with an instructor that took up the whole room where the special exhibit was, so I was a smidgen disappointed. But having said that, my visit was still very enjoyable because this is still a... More

A small but excellent collection of American art (Remington, Russell, Eakins, Bodkin, Widmar, O'Keefe, and Calder) including paintings, sculpture and photography. Visited during the week and had only one school group which was easy to avoid; otherwise not crowded and very pleasant galleries. The gift shop was very good and staff/docents throughout were friendly and helpful. Parking required payment but... More

Visited the museum recently. Parts of the building were being remodeled, but it did not impact our visit in any way. The art is outstanding and very western - which I love. We joined a group that was being led by a museum staff member and that helped us get more insight into the art. It really was interesting and... More

Did a short visit and sought out the Remington and Russell works, which were well displayed. The Impressionists paintings were also quite enjoyable and a nice selection.

I love this museum that I have continued to visit for decades. So many famous works of art! Besides that they have an extensive collection of photographic art, including Eliot Porter's complete collection.

This is an excellent museum with a more traditional gallery layout. The collections feature paintings (19th & 20th centuries), books, sculpture and photographs. My favorites were the paintings, especially by Hudson River School artists (e.g., Church, Cole and Bierstadt). In addition there are numerous impressionist works (e.g., artists Sargent, Hassam and Chase) and other genres of painting that feature noted... More

I love the Amon Carter Museum. Heck, I love Amon Carter and I didn't even know him as he had gone to see Jesus before I ever got to Fort Worth. But what Fort Worther does not love Amon Carter? However, I digress. This museum is so wonderful as it contains not only the Remington's and Russell's so many other... More
