Fort Worth's premier art museum, featuring paintings from international painters.
I may be spoiled by the expansive collection of my hometown art museum, gallery upon gallery. There are basically 6 galleries at the Kimball, 4 of which were closed (in preparation for upcoming exhibit etc.) I did enjoy seeing the collection in the North gallery- a few Picassos, Monets, Matisse and several versions of Madona and child. I did not visit the African art which is housed in the building next door. As this museum is clustered with the Modern Art and Amon Carter, it could be worth your while to visit others if in the area. The coffee shop/Pavillion Cafe offers some good fare.

First off, you don't need to run out to a ticket booth to get a timed admission ticket here like you do in DC, you just walk up and are admitted. Second off, it is FREE. Third off, this was so informative and cool. It is perfect for people of all ages. I learned so much about paper money on this tour. Now I am looking at my bills to see if they were made in DC or Ft. Worth. The tour is self-guided with a hand-held speaker to press at each station, so you can go at your own pace and spend more time observing the areas that interest you. I loved that the employees wave at the visitors throughout the tour too. They were printing $100 bills when I visited so it was cool to see the bills throughout the process and then to see the stacks and stacks of money- WOW! There is a gift shop in the building too with something for everyone, so remember to bring your wallet. There are a few things to take into consideration before visiting though. Because this needs to be a very secure facility, all visitors will go through a metal detector and you cannot bring the following items in the facility, so if you can't live without your cellphone, then you won't be able to visit: Cell phones, electronic equipment, back packs, cameras, weapons (including knives, pellet guns, mace, etc.), explosives, food, and drinks are prohibited, so you will have to leave them in your car. Plan ahead and lock any valuables in the trunk before you arrive to the parking lot just in case. We had no problems and we placed our phones in the glove box.

The GEM is a community center, much like the YMCA. The GEM offers a full training circuit, free weights, cardio equipment, pool, gymnasium, basketball and volleyball, aerobics classes (including water aerobics & ZUMBA) and childcare. We also offer Performing Arts training including Singing, Acting & Dance. We offer cooking classes and seminars, community events (like movie nights & ice cream socials), and much more! Check out our website for the latest on what is happening at The GEM!
We use to belong to the Gem. Classes were great most of those teachers have left. The noise from the children just left there by their parents became so bad we could no longer enjoy Yoga class. The children also didn't wipe down the machines and were a distraction to those of us who were trying to use the gym. Cost is to high for what you get. They are supposed to be a church and non profit but I don't believe that is there goal. The machines have become broken down and are not fixed. They go through employees very quickly and it has just become a drop off for people who want their children watched why they do other things

Designed by renowned architect Philip Johnson, the Amon Carter Museum of American Art houses a preeminent collection of nineteenth-and twentieth-century painting, sculpture, and works on paper, and it is one of the nation's major repositories of American photography. It is also home to nearly 400 works by Frederic Remington and Charles M. Russell, the two greatest artists of the American West. Museum Hours: Tuesday-Saturday 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.; Thursday 'til 8:00 p.m.; Sunday 12:00 to 5:00 p.m.; Closed Mondays and major holidays
Lovely museum. Really enjoyed the photography exhibit by Rania Matar.
This exhibition is described as "bringing together four bodies of work by the Lebanese-American photographer Rania Matar that trace the development of female identity through portraiture. Depicting transitional moments of life, from young girlhood to middle age, Matar’s works address personal and collective identity through photographs mining female adolescence and womanhood. Photographing girls and women in both the United States and the Middle East, the artist shows how the forces that shape female identity transcend cultural and geographic boundaries."
Each girl photographed is as individual as the room she calls "home". The colors in each photo, whether of the individual, or the "stuff" in the room, are dynamic. Interesting to see how they each live, whether they have a little or a lot.

The museum only charges $6 for adult admissions. It is a very complete collection of guns, knives, artillery, uniforms, etc.... best I have seen. They also have a separate collection of 19th century women's dresses, which my wife enjoyed. The staff and docents are very friendly and clearly love their museum.
The museum focuses on the war and reconstruction in Texas and gives an insight, I suspect, few consider. Did you know there were naval battles?
I spent about two hours and that was about right.

Home to cowboys in addition to historic hotels and western-style shopping.
Yes, it's very touristy - but then we're all tourists aren't we. The general appearance of the town is pleasant and there's some localish retail if you're interested, but of course the main draw here are the Texas longhorns. The 'cattle drive' of ten or so cattle down the main street is a good photo opportunity and you can then go back to the pens and look at these remarkable creatures. If you're staying an international tourist visiting the Metroplex it's probably worth a few hours of your time. Parking is plentiful at a standard charge of $7.One tip: this is a coffee wasteland; we were directed to the Hyatt for their 'Starbuck's products'!

This site focuses on Fort Worth's role in the cattle business.
Nice little museum to visit about local history. Plenty of souvenirs to choose to bring to your little ones as well

Peaceful nature reserve located just ten miles away from downtown Fort Worth; amenities and attractions include 20 miles of hiking trails, a resident bison herd and prairie dog colony, a marsh boardwalk and the Hardwicke Interpretive Center. Professional naturalists offer a wide variety of programs, classes and guided hikes each week.
OK sometimes you make a mistake this was one of them. You
drive through most of it but see very little or any wildlife. They
advertise Buffalo but I've seen more in Cleveland than here.
Small shop hidden back in woods as visitor center. This is
lacking any appeal to me and wife who have visited 14 National
Parks in US to date.

Spring-fed lake with sandy beaches, lifeguards and picnic areas.
We've been going here every year since I was a young child - my dad went as a teenager. It's very relaxing, shady, clean & great for all ages. You can bring in food, drinks, grill - just no glass, alcohol or loud music which keeps the place relaxing and fun! We'll be back soon!!!
