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.

This museum is a real modern architecture beauty. At the building's edge is a large reflecting pond. You will have a feeling that the museum rises from the water. Strange, beautiful trees around... Inside, I've seen the works of some of the world greatest artist, such as Andy Warhol's self portrait, works of Jackson Pollock and fascinating sculptures of Ron... More

The FW Modern Art Museum is simply outstanding. One would not think that "Cowtown" would have anything that would rival some of the best modern art museums in the world. But this museum does that and then some. The building itself is phenomenal. The displays of modern art are a wonderful juxtaposition to the classic art of its neighbor museum,... More
