The beautiful building is also a work of art. They have beautiful pond that surrounds part of the building that is gorgeous. The works of art are interesting and thought provoking. They are show movies there. Have been to several -- very good. They also have a café and bar.

By way of beginning - I don't like modern art. At all. However, there are exhibits at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth that are outstanding. My favorite by far is the photographic age progression of "The Brown Sisters" - 4 sisters' progression over more than 30 years, caught by one single photograph per year. Absolutely fascinating. Truly intriguing.... More

Definitely worth the trip. NYC-worthy art on view in Texas-size galleries. Save time for the gift shop.

The Kimbell gets the (deserved) raves but the Modern Art is just as worthy. Sometimes you have to ask yourself "what was the artist thinking ?" and I guess that's just the point. Some pieces are whimsical and some are awe inspiring. Laid out in a building just as special.

To be honest most of the art here is too contemporary for me, however the museum is of incredible design both outside and in, there's an excellent cafe, and the outpost of the Magnolia movie theatre is inside (Magnolia at the Modern) one of the most comfortable cinemas I have been to.

Some museums can be intimidating. While it might take days to explore the Smithsonian or Field museum, the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth can be enjoyed in just a couple of hours. Even small details like being easy to find and having abundant free parking close to the museum makes it easy to see. Once in the museum, it... More

We've been there before, several years back, but we were again pleasantly surprised, by the variety and the inspiring pieces of art. All that with the unique and wonderful architecture that has not changed. Another pleasant addition was the dance performances that were carried out in the main lobby, which you could watch for free and as much as you... More

The building is world class and worth a trip just for itself. The collection has plenty to satisfy any fan of modern art. The lovely restaurant and bar are just icing on the cake. Or, if you are just in need of a great place for meals, especially brunch, it is the cake and the icing.

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.
