Adjacent to the Kimball Museum, you should try to do both if possible. The Amon Carter has a very different feel than the Kimball, but what you will see inside is well worth a visit. The permanent collections offer a great chance to see the work of premier American artists. Highly recommend.

This place is great if you if Iike American art, especially western and cowboy genres. One of my favorite galleries had folk art which included many naive paintings. Best part, it's free!

A beautiful collection of paintings from many different artists. The frames are exquisite and a piece of art themselves! Great presentation of the pieces. Quiet and meditative. An enjoyable art museum. I will definitely revisit.

This was my first visit to the Amon Carter Museum and I loved it! The art on show was wonderful and I really enjoyed the photography. The permanent artwork was such a fabulous surprise of so many artists you know and love! If I lived in Ft. Worth, I would become a member here and attend all the functions and... More

This museum is located in the Cultural district in Fort Worth. On a recent visit to this "no admission '' museum, I feasted my eyes on an incredible exhibition by Norman Lewis. Norman Lewis was an African American painter who associated himself with the Abstract Expressionism movement and who also used representational motifs to focus on black urban life and... More

We attended the weekly Storytime and Craft this summer for two years in a row and really enjoyed it. We even invited our playgroups to join us. They even provided a snack and water to help kids keep up their energy during their stay. Definitely would recommend.

First off, there is no admission price which is awesome! I bought some stuff from the gift shop to support them but you can walk around for free. That's great!! The art is really awesome too. There is alot of cowboy art on the bottom floor but the top floor had much more to offer. There was a photography gallery... More

We spent a good two hours in the exhibit; definitely more than just cowboy art. Unbelievable that there is no charge. Very quiet, not crowded at all on a Friday. Beautiful grounds. Easy (free) parking, and then you can walk to other museums.

I made my second visit to this museum today. I am so impressed with the Norman Lewis exhibit. This artist was unknown to me before I visited today. I thank the Amon Carter for such a wonderful introduction. This museum does have a lot of western/Remington art but it is still absolutely worth a visit even if that isn't your... More

This museum was less impressive than the other museums in FTW. Smaller and quieter, too. Cowboy art just isn't my "thing", I suppose.
