Amon Carter Museum has a generous display of western art, as one would expect. Tremendous detail brings the ruggedness of cowboys to life. But there are also more classical art exhibits with excellent briefs to explain the depth of the art. A true learning experience....More

Took my parents here during a recent rainy day. The string art, Polaroid and Alderon exhibits were very cool to observe, as is the entire facility. Definitely recommend to visitors as wells as locals who haven't visited recently.

We have visited the Amon Carter for many years and again were not disappointed. The traveling exhibits are exceptional and one of those drew us to the museum again this visit. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The facility is architecturally interesting and clean.
