We were primarily interested in their Remington and Russell art but we walked by a lot of other really interesting art and it's all free.

Good art museum if you’re a fan of Western art such as Remington, horses, cowboys. Miscellaneous displays of other American art lack focus. Not enough of any one type of thing to make up a whole room. The building itself lacks interesting architectural features and is reminiscent of state university buildings of the modern era. Veranda area seems empty and wasted but useful for events. Beautiful view. I got the impression the Carter museum lacks support, big donors, or direction. But maybe they have plans. Perfect location. Easy to get to on the culture trolley.
It's a great place to visit with/ without kids. The entrance and parking is free. We loved the exhibit, they have a small library and gift shop. The kids also loved their grounds. I would definitely recommend a visit.
Fascinating experience with all of the artworks. It has a family room for meditating and enjoying being an artist with all drawing supplies. Suitable for family and kids who are ready to dive into the world of knowledge and art.
Beautiful museum and collections. On the day I went to see the BLACK EVERY DAY exhibit. Sit was amazing to see black people shown in the excellence of everyday life. It’s inspiring in my own quest to photography life in America. Many of the other collections drew my attention also. I learn about Amon Carter, Remington, Lachaise, Steele, and many more.
I've been enjoying this museum since my first trip in 1970 when I was in elementary school on a field trip. And when I think about the Amon Carter museum I immediately think about the painting Parson Weems' Fable" by Grant Wood. I also enjoy the perfect placement of the museum to where you can stand on the steps and look out at the beautiful view of downtown Fort Worth from an elevated point. The placement of the sculptures "Upright Motive No. 2, 7, and Glenkiln Cross by Henry Moore in the eastern edge of the plaza even adds to the beauty of that view! In 1976 Henry Moore visited his work and said "I love to see the sky as a background for my sculpture, it's often a better background than any other."
