“A World Class Museum”
Reviewed July 8, 2014

I have visited all the museums of Europe and New York. None are any better than the Amon Carter. It has the best collection of western art anywhere I have been, but also other great American art. It also houses a huge and diverse photography collection.

“A Great Place - Even For Non Art Lovers”
Reviewed July 4, 2014

I have enjoyed visiting the Amon Carter Museum for years. The artwork is very interesting.

I am not a big art lover but walking through the galleries looking at the sculptures and paintings is always a great way to spend a few hours.

“Free, well organized and excellent works of art!”
Reviewed June 13, 2014

Amon Carter is a well laid out museum with easy access, ample parking, elevators and a beautiful lawn for picnics! If you are looking for a free outing in an air conditioned environment, this is a pleasant experience. We enjoyed the sculptures as well.
