This museum by one of America's greatest architects, Philip Johnson, has long been overshadowed by Kahn's Kimbell, its Cultural District neighbor. But Johnson's hilltop loggia for the Carter Museum is one of his earliest musings in the postmodern vein; Johnson also oversaw a major expansion, which was completed in 2001. The Carter has acquired one of the finest collections of American art anywhere, ranging from 19th-century landscape painters like Thomas Cole and Albert Bierstadt to 20th-century masters such as Georgia O'Keeffe and Stuart Davis—as well as Western favorites Frederic Remington and Charles M. Russell. The museum also houses one of the largest and best collections of American photography extant.

Open Sundays noon to 5 pm, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays 10 am to 5 pm, Thursdays 10 am to 8 pm.
