Fort Worth is known for its western charm, but the city’s 120-acre Cultural District is filled with unexpected opportunities to experience art, history, architecture, science, and even space. Best of all, each institution is just a short walk away from the next.
A quick trip from just about every city in Texas, Fort Worth brings together a rich scene of art and entertainment in one convenient place. The Cultural District, which gently
overlooks the Trinity River, boasts three of the most well-designed museums in the
nation, making the buildings a work of art in their own right. Architecture lovers will
appreciate the iconic lines of Phillip Johnson’s Amon Carter Museum of American Art,
Louis Kahn’s Kimbell Art Museum and the Renzo Piano-designed Pavilion, as well as Tadao Ando’s Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth.
Don’t be afraid to work up an appetite while you explore; the Cultural District is home to
a delicious array of culinary experiences you’ll want to sip and savor. From burgers with
unexpected toppings and funny names to a sustainably-sourced Beetroot Panna Cotta,
you’ll find something tasty to satisfy your craving.
And if nature is your thing, then you’ll want to make it a point to wander the grounds of
the Fort Worth Botanic Gardens. It is the oldest botanic garden in the state, with over
2,500 species of plants, and 23 specialty gardens, including a European-style rose garden
where the aromas are as vibrant as the rose petals. While you’re there, stroll through the
world-renowned Japanese garden, set amid koi-filled pools and the sound of rushing
waterfalls, this serene environment will draw out your inner zen.
From museums to galleries, gardens, and more, the Cultural District offers something for
everyone and so much to explore that you can return again and again. Perfect for families and fun for friends, plan your visit to the Fort Worth Cultural District today!
