FORT WORTH, Texas---The Amon Carter Museum is excited to introduce its latest activity for visitors: the Postcard Tour. The Postcard Tour is a free family activity that both adults and children can use to better connect with the museum’s collection of American paintings and sculpture.

Seven popular artworks are presented in the Postcard Tour. Each card features a color reproduction of the work of art along with questions that adults and children can use to interact with the artwork and with each other. Sets of the Postcard Tour are available at the Information Desk. The first 450 Postcard Tours are free for visitors to keep; additional copies will be available for free checkout and use while at the museum.

“It is my hope that the Postcard Tour will inspire children and adults alike to make discoveries and participate in great discussions that help them connect to our collection in meaningful ways,” says Nora Christie Puckett, the Carter’s student, family, and adult program manager.

This activity is made possible in part by a generous grant from the JPMorgan Chase Foundation.
