The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth is the oldest art museum in Texas and one of the oldest museums in the western United States. The Modern was chartered on April 25,1892 as the Fort Worth Public Library and Art Gallery, but the name and mission have evolved over the years. The 25 women who founded the Public Library and Art Gallery sought to bring a different sort of culture to the historically cattle-focused city.
We celebrate our charter with free admission to the museum for the community.
