3200 Darnell St., Fort Worth, Texas, 76107

The basics

Home to a permanent collection of more than 3,000 works, and a showcase for temporary exhibitions, the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth is one of the Texan city’s foremost cultural attractions. Dedicated to abstract expressionist, pop art, and cubist pieces, as well as works from other modern art movements, the museum also hosts film screenings and theatrical performances. Though its founding in 1892 makes it Texas’ oldest museum, The Modern has, since 2002, been housed in a fittingly avant-garde building by Japanese architect Tadao Ando.

Set in the heart of Fort Worth’s Cultural District, the museum is easy to reach, and tickets can be purchased online in advance.
