Art Museum Day is an international initiative to highlight the value of museums in society.
10 am-5 pm
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.
Take advantage of family programming at the Modern over the course of the week while your school-aged children are on Spring Break. Each session is led by a docent and includes a gallery project designed by the education department. Both the tour and project focus on selected works in the Modern's collection. Arrive early, this program fills quickly. Attendance is limited to 45 children per session; admission is free.
Two sessions each day; 11-11:45 am and 2-2:45 pm
