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.

The Modern's collection is top notch. There's something for everyone, at least those interested in modern art. My favorites are Sean Scully's Catherine paintings, while my daughter'a favorite is Richard Serra's Vortex sculpture, located outside the museum. Takao Ondo's building is a work of art in itself - mesmerizing, serene and unique.

This is my favorite museum in Fort Worth, and it is in my 10 ten of world-wide museums. The art collection is great, but the just walking around the building is SPECTACULAR. I also love having a cocktail and a cheese on their patio with friends. A must see when you visit Fort Worth!

First, if you don't like or understand modern art, maybe this isn't for you. For everyone else, don't miss it! There are several works of Andy Warhol and at least one Jackson Polluck. When my teenage son saw the Polluck asked the docent if the displayed works were reproductions! When we visited there was a wonderful photography exhibit and a... More

If you have to pick one, go here. Very sleek building. Saw Framing Desire photo exhibit and liked it. A video from The National was a cool addition. Wish I had more time there and hadn't gone to Kimbell first on a rushed day.

Unfortunately, we are not fans of modern art, but we decided to give it a go. The museum has possibilities, and it is laid out well for those in the know. I just don't get it and never will.
