I love going to this museum. The permanent collection is lovely and always nice to look at. The traveling collections are always awesome. The museum has programs/activities available during the summer for kids and adults. The best part about the museum is that it is free to the community to experience all types of art and subjects. Great place to... More

Didn't have too much time before they closed and didn't get to see most of the Remingtons, but the rest of the museum was good. On the smaller side. The string-like exhibit in the "great hall" (that's what I call it) is mesmerizing. Best of all, FREE ADMISSION!

Worth a visit to see the fabulous collection of exhibits by Remington and Russell - surely the finest recorders of the American West

This was an excellent museum experience. My friend and I decided to pop into this museum on a whim the day before I left town and man am I glad we did! The staff were quite knowledgeable and answered lots of random questions I had. The way that the galleries were set up made it a fun flowing process to... More

We visit Amon Carter frequently because this is a family friendly place to go especially on rainy days when we need to get out of the house. The art is always interesting and the history rich. This is a great family spot.

The Amon Carter is a truly excellent museum, but I was very disappointed with the special exhibit "Border Cantos". I am very surprised to find it at the Amon Carter. I would have expected it more at the Fort Worth Modern Art Museum. This is an exhibit which is more folk art in feel. It is professed to be apolitical,... More

A very nice museum. A great space very open and we'll lit so you can see all the exhibits. Friendly staff, eager to answer question and offer to help. The photo exhibit was awesome and the gentleman that was describing the antique cameras was very knowledgeable and friendly.

Went to the Museum during a wedding weekend on the advice of several people. Turns out it was very good advice. The works of Remington & Russell are featured in the permanent collection on the 1st floor & elsewhere. Other art from all of American history are exhibited. I can't say I'm a real art aficionado but all of it... More

I'm a bit puzzled why this Museum gets a Gem rating in the AAA Texas Guidebook. It's collection is good but doesn't hold a candle to the Kimbell Collection. We enjoyed our tour of the Amon Carter collection and especially the show highlighting the Border Wall and the treatment of immigrants from Central America and Mexico. Very provocative and moving!
