Take the word of this Fort Worth lifer who will always be a little rough around the edges. This is another one of those places in Cowtown you should make it a point to visit. Enough said!

We walked in and around the museum. Great viewpoints, including a pond and metal trees. Very striking building.

Great eclectic collection. Quite an excellent variety of artists in a lovely architecturally interesting building. There were many local artists I had not seen before ( that is the beauty of visiting museums in different cities) and I was duly impressed by the originality and beauty of their works.

This art museum has the ambiance of a parking garage. One has to cultivate a taste for modern art and the exhibits at this museum are not of the quality to encourage one's sense of appreciation.

I have been here a few times now and I have enjoyed my experience. It has never been overly crowded...and the building has a great open and modern feel that I love! Its a good drive from Dallas but if you like modern Art this building and the art itself are both a must see in Ft Worth.

Well worth the trip out of town a few miles as they had the Impressionists exhibition in town. That was not free but worth seeing. There is an e tensile art book shop in the museum.

The architecture is befitting a modern art museum, with the reflecting pool around part of the structure. The collections were intriguing as were the use of polished cement walls.

Attended a conference reception held at the foyer of the museum! Nice! Beautiful location for any celebration. Loved the outdoor water view! There were 500+ people networking comfortably!

Not really a lot to see here. Liked the other art museums better - try Amon Carter Museum. Just not my type of art.

Not a bad museum after you have seen the truly remarkable Kimbell and the surprisingly good Sid Richardson. Here’s what you need to know: It’s all modern art, some interesting, some boring. Some too hip for you to decide $10 general admission. $4 for seniors 60+ and students. Half price on Wednesday. Free on first Sunday. But it’s hard to... More
