All of the museums are worth checking out, but I really enjoyed the Modern Art Museum. As with all modern art museums - there are a few things that are head scratchers, but overall a well thought out collection with some really nice surprises.

The collection continues to grow, and the curators seem to have no fear of taking chances in pushing the limits of contemporary exhibitions. This museum had long existed in the shadow of the Kimball, but now it was the primary destination of our visit to Fort Worth. Each time I visit, they have added something new and exciting.

I love the first Friday's jazz in the atrium. They have drinks and appetizers for sale and it is a laid back atmosphere. The art is always top notch.

Very interesting displays. Educational as well. I like the photography exhibits and the paintings. Not so great for young children.

Modern/contemporary art always turns out to be “hit or miss” for me. When it comes to such art, some works make me roll my eyes, yet others are so clever I can’t get over it. Bottom line, I appreciate creativity so I’ll seek that out and see what I think. At the time of my visit there was both “hit”... More

I had never visited this museum before, but I went on the recommendation of a friend. What a great museum! Even though modern art is not really my thing, I really enjoyed my two-hour visit. The collection is first-class and very engaging. My favorite thing about this museum: there are lots of little isolated hallways and stairways to wander up... More

Well, I have to admit I don't get most of it. But it's interesting. And some of the stuff is pretty cool. My fav exhibit was not up the last time I was there. A photographer has taken a portrait of his wife and three sisters ever summer for the last 35 years or so. Fascinating. It's worth your while.... More

Outside of the outstanding and unique exhibits, the building and gazing pools create a very tranquil environment. The restaurant is ok and there are movies offered as well.

The layout and architecture is amazing the art is well displayed and documented. There is a bit of an issue for those visiting with babies since only the ground floor bathroom nearest the gift shop has a changing station. Parking is free but can be limited. Well worth seeing while in town.
