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

This was my first modern art museum - where the museum is dedicated to only modern art - and it was very good. Large spaces with a variety of interesting art. Ate at the museum restaurant which had a very cool view but the food was just average. Had the veggie sandwich and while it was tasty, it was very... More

Always interesting art. And great place for special events. This museum hosts movies that make a difference - cultural issues and the latest releases - with discussion group to follow. You meet some very interesting folk here…..

The support provided to this museum is impressive and it shows in the art displayed for public view. There is a small charge for access to some displays but the majority of the museum is no charge and you can also enjoy a nice meal if you find yourself spending more time than you imagined. It's possible!

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! We had breakfast inside before heading to the museum and it was wonderful (the food, the atmosphere, the view) - so I would recommend eating here... More
