The Amon Carter Museum is often overshadowed by its two neighbors but don’t make the mistake of skipping it. This museum is home to Russell’s and Remington’s and SO much more. I am always surprised by the selection of art on view and the building is gorgeous. Plus the museum has a nice patio area to sit, visit & enjoy the Fort Worth skyline. The only real con is that the parking lot is tiny but there is street parking and other surface lots in close proximity.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the Amon Carter. Loved the letters Charlie wrote to friends with illustration upstairs in the drawers, and the photos of mothers and daughters as well as young women as pre teens and teens. Also enjoyed the string installation near the gift shop.

Many pieces of two of my favorite American artists, Frederic Remington & Charles M. Russell. Their iconic depictions of the American West are so detailed and lifelike. If you are into Western Art, you have to make a stop here. Amon Carter started his collection with these two artists but expanded to include still lifes, expeditionary art, landscapes, modernism and photographs.

Free. Easy parking. Not crowded. Small enough to see a lot in a short amount of time. American art only-painting, photography, sculpture. Not great for young kids, but they had some activities (books, seek and find cards) to encourage kids' participation. Outside area nice with tables and a view of downtown.

Even if you know nothing about art, this is still an entertaining and educational experience. Employees are very knowledgeable and nice. Very nice that the other museums are so close and an enjoyable walk between them all. Even the grounds have great art and architecture.
