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.

This place was exactly as i intended an art museum to be, It had some wonderful pieces and was interesting to say the least, When it comes to kids though i wouldn't bring them.. its just not a kid friendly environment.

My husband is a big fan of Remington bronzes, so we decided to check out the Amon Carter Museum. He was happy to see the numerous Remingtons there, as well as a short lesson on how the bronzes are created and the different methods used. It is a lovely and well curated collection with numerous paintings, sculptures, photographs, etc. We... More

Yes, Amon Carter Museum specializes in western US art, and you will see sculptures and paintings of cowboys and Native Americans and cactus, but if you don't think that's your cup of tea I still highly recommend you visit. There is so much more to see and the museum is a perfect size for a one or two hour visit.

Amon G Carter is a lovely small museum at the top of a hill overlooking downtown. It has a nice western art collection and some special exhibit space. The museum and parking is free. It was a nice break from the heat of the day but not worth a special trip. Recommend visiting both this one and the Kimble Art... More

The Norman lewis exhibit was amazing. Beautifully exhibited and good explanations. We were impressed with our first visit to the Amon carter, usually choosing the Kimbell.

This is my favorite museum in Fort Worth. Always free, friendly, with a wonderful collection. A real old fashioned museum, events, gift shop and restaurant not the priority here.
