Renovating Johnson’s Icon

The Amon Carter Museum of American Art has celebrated and showcased American creativity and its power to delight, educate, and inspire for more than fifty years. Since opening the doors to our Philip Johnson-designed museum in 1961, we have embraced change to improve visitor experience and to ensure the preservation of our acclaimed collection. In October 2018, we began a building project to enhance our galleries, to expand our preservation of the photography collection, and to provide a more welcoming and enriching experience for our visitors.

The museum's upstairs galleries are currently closed and will reopen in September 2019. Visit highlights of the collection in the exhibition From Remington to O'Keeffe: The Carter's Greatest Hits, on view through June 2, 2019 in the museum's 1961 building. The museum will be closed to the public beginning June 3 through the end of August 2019 to complete the renovation and add accessibility to the museum's main entrance.
