Because I once told a docent at a museum of modern art that some people "could trip over the yellow water hose on the ground" not realizing that it was the "object de arte", It would not be right for me to offer my critique of the wonderful display offered here. However it was enjoyable to walk through this magnificent... More

We came here for Sunday Brunch and to tour the museum. The brunch was fantastic, although if you're in a hurry you should arrive early--we waited about an hour for our table. Since the museum is right there, though, this wasn't an issue. Brunch was fantastic, and the exhibits are great. Some are "modern" in a way I find mystifying... More

One of the best art collections in the United States. The atmosphere is very peaceful and quiet. It's the perfect place to think, to remember, nourish the soul, even write. The coffee area also has a wonderful atmosphere. The staff is friendly and the prices reasonable.

I am a huge fan of Tadao Ando (the architect of this building) so I was very excited to come see this museum and I definitely was not disappointed. The building is absolutely amazing!

Detailed, immaculate, textured, and calming describe this must-see in Fort Worth. Step inside and you'll be torn between the external/internal beauty of the building, and its contents. Fabulous art by famous names adorn the refreshing corridors. Come hungry to enjoy Cafe Modern and its view. NO REGRETS. Beauty. Reciprocal membership = free Admission fee is reasonable otherwise.

Modern Art is not my favorite. Still, this museum is excellent. The architecture is amazing and there are many pieces of are that are fantastic. I would say one of the best Moderns I've seen.

While not as large as the MOMA in New York, or the Tate Modern in London, its exhibitions are in the same class. The building and grounds are also a work of art.

We had been anticipating this museum for some time and the best part about this museum was the ticket taker. He was very jovial and fun. The exhibit was lacking.
