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.

I grew up near and was in Chicago alot through my early 40's. So when I moved here, I knew nothing about Ft. Worth's Museum district. If you are visiting, take a day, and go to all three. Open your mind. It is significant. Parking ? easy. Traveling Exhibitions ? world class. Architecture ? beautiful. Museum owned and borrowed pieces... More

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

You must see this museum yourself... The art is wonderful but the site is fabulous. Even if you are not a huge fan of modern art this place may convert you. While viewing the collection you feel as if you are walking on water. The stainless steel trees are incredible but don't miss the on site restaurant - it is... More

This museum was interesting and intriguing. Although we aren't modern art lovers, necessarily, the collection varied in style and interested all in our party. We visited on Sunday, so admission was free. That was a nice surprise.

A friend and I attended what is known as First Friday at the Modern. This is an event that is pretty much every month. We arrived to gorgeous surroundings and a wonderful Jazz Trio. It was honestly quite difficult to find a seat so we walked around and ended up in the gift shop. Many intriguing little items are to... More
