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

Detailed, immaculate, textured, and calming describe this must-see in Fort Worth. Step inside and you'll be torn between the external/internal beauty of the building, and its contents. Fabulous art by famous names adorn the refreshing corridors. Come hungry to enjoy Cafe Modern and its view. NO REGRETS. Beauty. Reciprocal membership = free Admission fee is reasonable otherwise.

Modern Art is not my favorite. Still, this museum is excellent. The architecture is amazing and there are many pieces of are that are fantastic. I would say one of the best Moderns I've seen.

While not as large as the MOMA in New York, or the Tate Modern in London, its exhibitions are in the same class. The building and grounds are also a work of art.

We had been anticipating this museum for some time and the best part about this museum was the ticket taker. He was very jovial and fun. The exhibit was lacking.

This must be one of best modern art museums of modern art that I have visited for many tears, The building and grounds are a work of art too with large glass panes, large and smooth concrete blocks and a water feature where the ripples supply a living art feature. There are many works from many artists throughout the 20th... More

For not being the metropolitan in New York City, this place was fun, educational and enjoyable. The I-max was killer and parking is very sufficient. Overall a good way to spend three or fours hours on a rainy or boring day!

The building itself is a work of art, filled with fun modern art. It's a moderate sized collection, but with some interesting pieces.
