Wonderful space, easily accessible modern art...

Maybe I just don't get modern abstract art and installations, but the works exhibited here, and there isn't that much to see, is underwhelming. Technically subpar photography that also doesn't evoke any emotions, abstract paintings that are little more than horizontal and vertical lines. Expected more. Exterior of the building is very nice though with a reflecting pond.

I know what you're thinking...or many of you are thinking..."I don't 'get' modern art". Well, maybe you don't, but this is THE best collection of what I think of as accessible modern art. There is truly something for everyone. Will some of the pieces leave you scratching your head? Yes. Will some pieces possibly offend you? Well, I'm good with... More

This is a great museum to visit for a nice exhibit before catching up with the Ft. Worth night life. They have some really nice art work that is worth seeing that you won't find any where else and get some great exhibits in.

Free admission on Sundays, at least for this month...we stopped in for a brisk self-tour through the MAMFW...lots of interesting pieces, and far-ranging subject matter...worth the visit!

We love the Modern Cafe for all the different dinners and events they have. The regular menu is also very creative and good. So relaxing and beautiful to eat there anytime of day!

We prefer to visit the Cultural District when there are events our whole family can enjoy. I find The Modern, as well as the other museums nearby, are great for children during "Day in the District" in September. The Modern hosted "Spring Break Wonders" in March and opened on a Monday (normally closed) to welcome children for special tours and... More

This is one of my favorite art museums in America. The Tadao Ando designed building is phenomenal, their rotating permanent collection has always surprising pieces and the temporary exhibitions are usually great. Make sure you visit the Kimbell (just across the street) and the Amon Carter (2 blocks away).

My review is based primarily on the museum as it was advertised in the FW family magazine for families with young kids. The ad specifically used a photo of kids engaged in art of some sort. I should have checked online first, but they have no kids program nor kids area. False advertising. Worse, they do not allow diaper bags... More

I have been to this museum several times. It never disappoints. The building's architecture is beautiful and modern. The art displayed is vast. Solo, with a date, with the family or a friend ... Definitely worth it.

Only one exhibit was open when we were there, so it seemed a little expensive. But...the grounds and pool are lovely. We did enjoy the exhibit we saw. Also, fyi - the tickets are half price on Fridays.
