This is a fabulous gallery and the fact that it is free makes it all the better. It currently has a special exhibit of Audubon prints of animals, rather than the birds for which he is known. Although the animal prints lack the bright colors of the bird ones, the exquisite detail for which Audubon is known is the same.... More

Not too crowded, free entrance on Sunday, helpful staff, parking was difficult. Nice printed information is provided at each piece of art. We did not see any audio devices to use for information, and none were offered.

I am not an art snob. I enjoy art that doesn't need to be explained. Amon Carter has some of the best in the world, and it is attractively displayed, comfortable to visit, and first-rate in every way. Amazing that something so valuable, so pleasant, so inspiring is available without charge!

If you like the 19th century landscapes of Church, Bierstadt and others, the paintings of America's greats like Eakins and Cole, and some of America's finest impressionists like Childe Hassam, you will love this small art museum. But for many, the most enjoyable collection are the Remington and Russell paintings and sculptures. This alone makes it worth the trip. And... More

This being Texas I went into the museum expecting it to be mostly "western" themed paintings romanticizing the cowboy era. I was surprised to find a great variety of art spanning decades (and centuries) and representing vastly different styles. This is a comprehensive museum scaled down to a very manageable size.

I loved the Remington and Russell collections. Most of the bronzes are in storage or on loan during restoration, though. I would go back when renovations are complete.

It is a relatively small museum, you can see the entire collection in an hour, and it's free. Definitely worth the hour.
