Full of modern, eclectic artworks such as paintings and photography, the Amon Carter Museum is open to the public free of charge and its aim is to inspire the new generations to express themselves in art.

The exhibitions feature photographs depicting every day life moments, artists and the painting collections take you to another realm, where imagination reigns and you have to open your mind in order to understand the artists feelings or message.

It is a truly interesting museum with a wide collections of modern artworks. I can only recommend it.
