Many facilities in one location, parking was convenient and available and free. Some museums are free, check on the websites. I saw construction on the Kimbell, and anticipate the expansion.

Fort Worth has the plastic arts covered so much better than Dallas, and better than many other much bigger American cities. Three great museums line up in a picturesque row overlooking downtown. The Kimbell has an eclectic but very strong collection of paintings and artifacts in a treasure of a building by Louis Kahn, no being added onto by Renzo Piano. Adjacent to the west is the extraordinary American and Western art and photography collection of the Amon Carter Museum. Just next door to the east is the Tadeo Ando-designed Modern Art Museum, with a small but widely ranging collection (the building alone is worth the visit). Cheek-by-jowl with these are the Cowgirl Museum, an excellent science museum, the Casa Mañana Theater, and the Will Rogers Coliseum complex. If you can't entertain and educate yourself amongst all these offerings, there's no hope for you!

...but on a per capita basis for art wealth, it kicks some butt. You will wonder how so much good stuff found its way to Cowtown. Start with The Modern and work your way North.

My very favorite part of Fort Worth. There's a treasure every direction you look. Museums, restaurants, gardens - a great place to spend the day!

This is not NYC or Chicago, but for a Texas city the Cultural District is great. Check the Botanic Gardens and especially the Japanese Garden; the architecture of all the museums is very interesting, and Kimbell Art Museum is probably one of the best small museums in US.
