We found this Museum's approach to modern art rather conservative when compared to say, Tate Modern (London) or MONA (Museum of Old and New Art, Hobart). For a start, most of the works on display when we visited were framed works, and there seemed to be a lack of the kind of challenging works that we have come to expect... More

We recently visited this museum for the Stella exhibit and were astonished by the beauty of the museum! The exhibit was amazing but who knew the building itself would be so impressive. It, alone, is worth consideration. While there, make sure to enjoy a meal at the The Modern. Few restaurants are as beautiful and the food was terrific.

Delicious Sunday brunch overlooking the museum's water features with gallery view behind. Eat in the restaurant, go to the gift shop, and unless you actually like contemporary art, go to the Kimbell and Amon Carter museum galleries...

The exhibits are extremely well-curated and the museum's architecture by Tadao Ando is itself an artist masterpiece. The museum draws you in with its gorgeous atmosphere, sunshine pouring in from tall vertical window walls, well-lit exhibits, and wide-open spaces. The gift shop offers a good selection of books and specific items from previous exhibits. Free entry on Sundays.

The best part of this museum is the architecture. The shallow pools surrounding the building are incredible. We were interested in the Frank Stella Retrospective. The displays were well-spaced and very interesting. You could easily do a self-guided tour and there are docent-led tours available. Definately worth the time.

Art is in the eye of the beholder. It depends on what you consider art if you will like this or not. It is very different but beautiful in its own way. The galleries change so there is always something new and interesting. The view outside is wonderful. This is a nice place to go and admire the location, surroundings... More

My friends wanted to see the Frank Stella exhibit. I did like the fact that the exhibit was part of the admission price...many museums would've tacked on another ticket price for the privilege. Modern art can be a tough sell if it's the "lines and squares" variety, but overall there were some interesting works. The Banksy piece was the best... More

Maybe I don't understand it, but I am confident that my elementary school kids could replicate this "so called" art. It's a bunch of squares and lines. How is this art? I could do all of it with a ruler and some paint.

My favorite museum in the DFW metroplex! It houses wonderful collections and features ever-changing exhibits, plus the Tuesday night lecture series provides a great excuse for an outing to meet and talk with exhibiting and visiting artists, grab dinner with friends, and enjoy a drink in the lounge.

I have to start by saying that modern art is not my favorite thing. However I can appreciate any type of art and artist. But I was not able to appreciate much of this stuff. Particularly when we got to a video showing a man digging a hole on his ranch. Really! We do that all the time on our... More
