The Fort Worth Botanic Gardens fill one-hundred-nine acres of land with beautiful and fragrant flowers. There are fourteen gardens as well as the Compost Outpost, the Native Texas Boardwalk, and the Rain Forest Conservatory. People can either venture through the gardens on their own or they can take one of the numerous tours that are available. Throughout the year, the Botanic Gardens offer special events that can enhance a person’s experience at the gardens.
The Fort Worth Water Gardens are next to the Convention Center and they can be enjoyed every day of the year. Inside the 4.3 acres, people will see a meditation pool, an aerating pool, and an active pool. People are allowed to walk down the terraced steps of the active pool while listening to the sounds of water in the background.
Post-World War II art is displayed inside the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth and while they have almost 2,600 pieces of art in their permanent collection, they do not have the space to display it all at once. Therefore, the permanent collection is rotated just like their temporary exhibits.
Inside the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History, people will find themselves exploring not only the exhibits, but the innovation studios, the Omni Theater, and the Noble Planetarium. There are multiple shows throughout the day and people will love the opportunity to see more than one of them during their visit.
The Sid Richardson Museum is located in Sundance Square and the museum features art work from Western artists. Quite a bit of the collection was purchased between 1942 and 1959 by Sid Williams Richardson, however this museum did not open until 1982. Sid Richardson loved paintings that depicted action or suspense, so people will see many of these throughout the museum.
