Start your visit by admiring the building designed by Tadao Ando. It is magnificent and worth taking the time to wander through the space enjoying the light and exhibits. The David Bates exhibit will be there until May 11th. Don't miss the Rirkrit Tiravanijja exhibit that will be shown through June 1st! You will be surprised by your experience.

The Modern is an excelent place to go and see the various art that is on exhibi. Take in the limited movie selection that they have, stop and enjoy a cocktail brunch, lunch or dinner and just spend the day there!

My daughter and I went to this museum as a girls day trip, and we were not disappointed. The artwork is not only beautiful, but fun and at times interactive. Very interesting pieces of art, and it was a great visit. I asked if they offered a military discount, and as long as you have your id card, it's FREE!... More

Make haste! Don't procrastinate for another moment! Make your way to Fort Worth's Modern Art Museum! Once there, allow time to stand still and savor both the permanent collection and the extraordinary current exhibition of David Bates. Featuring Bates' paintings of New Orleans, and in particular many reflecting his views of Katrina devastation, the exhibition is extremely relevant and hauntingly... More

Really enjoyed the art in this museum. Although it's quite small, there is a good range of works. There are lots of twists and turns and things round corners, plenty to explore in the space there is. It was only $10 to get in as well, which was definitely worth it. Would recommend

I am not an art expert and have my own taste in art. There are some things I say "this is art?" It's up to your own interpretation. There is a fee to get in and is worth visiting.

I was very impressed with this art museum and how they displayed art collections in their impressive building. As a disabled tourist using a small electric scooter, I found the museum easy to explore. The staff were very helpful. It would have been helpful if there were more lengthy written descriptions of the art available.

I have only been to a handful of art museums, as this is not really one of my interests. But I wanted to visit while the David Bates exhibit was there, as I love his paintings. (until May, I believe). His exhibit was absolutely wonderful, but besides that, they have many interesting and unusually exhibits that most people would enjoy.... More

This is a great place, the building is wonderful and the some of the external pieces beautifully set, loved the 'trees' outside! Get there while the David Bates Exhibition is still on (finishes May 11th 2014). This is a totally stunning exhibition, we both loved it and spent ages looking at these paintings. They are wonderful. The Fred Tomaselli exhibit... More

Entering the museum, you immediately realize the structure itself is a piece of art. Tadao Ando’s use of concrete creates space and order for a pleasant viewing experience. Ando designed the galleries with a natural flow, leading from one piece of work to the next with frequent connections to the world outside. The collection features modern art, which may challenge...
