|"Amazing Place For Those Who Enjoy Art", An Eventective User from Fort Hood, Texas|
|Being stationed in Forth hood with the army. A good escape with the family every once in a while is mandatory and great. The trip to Fort Worth's Modern Art Museum was a amazing experience. The modern look of the place and the structure was simply a dream. Even I would want to live there. They offer many services as well including catering by Cafe Modern. The dishes where simply one of the kind even the food looks beautiful on the plate. From what I can remember they have many displays including Chinese styles. Basically there is a little bit for everyone here when it comes down to it. I happened to get a chance to go there on a weekend with a bunch of army friends and we filled up the whole place about 150 of us. So the Museum can hold a lot of people. From what I can remember going through the paintings with my friends there was plenty of WWII paintings and sculptures. I was in love with a lot of the abstract art they have there. Rumor has it that many people have held weddings there as well. Which would be a beautiful place to hold weddings. The lobby was huge I remember it being called the "Grand Lobby" for a reason. If you are in the area it does not hurt to spend a few bucks and drop by the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth you really will not regret it! Especially those in the Army stationed at Forth Worth!|
