The Amon Carter is definitely my favorite art museum in Ft Worth. Exhibits include American and Western artists from the 1700's to current. Docents are friendly and knowledgable and the museum is curated by world class staff. A great place to spend a morning or afternoon in Ft Worth.

This excellent museum contains many paintings by American artists that simply cannot be seen elsewhere in the world. Probably the most interesting museum/art gallery that I have been to around the world.

I was very impressed by the Amon Carter Museum. I knew about their collections of Remington and Russell, and I was not disappointed by their collection fromthe Southwest US. But I was delighted by their great breadth of 19th and 20th century paintings as well. They had many fine works of Hudson River School and other 19th century landscape painters,... More

Awed upon entry, the Gabriel Dawe’s Plexus no. 34 is a colorful unique installation of thread, don't miss it. We were lead on an inspiring tour by our docent Ann, she shared many wonderful highlights of the museum. Some our our favorites were the collection from the Hudson River Valley School of Art, a wood 2D piece by George Morrison,... More

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!

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.
