  • Van Grow Studio of the Arts
    Owners Maarten and Hanna Vanderstoel created Van Grow Studio of the Arts to promote creative thinking and problem solving in children through artistic crafts. Boasting degrees in fine arts and studio arts, respectively, Maarten and Hanna teach most of the classes and prepare the curricula for all of the studio's camps. TCU graduate Alma Worrell manages the open studio and paint-your-own-pottery rooms, which are also accessible to adults. Van Grow's upbeat instructors nurture creativity and confidence across three age groups, offering classes, parties, and workshops to pique a wide range of interests. Courses foster each student's individual vision, rather than a mastery of technique, and help to develop motor skills, self-esteem, and the ability to sculpt gummy-bear replicas of Rodin's The Thinker.

  • Amon Carter Museum
    Amon Carter Museum of American Art Since opening in 1961, the Amon Carter Museum of American Art has built up a world-class collection of more than 200,000 pieces, including 19th- and 20th-century canvases from Winslow Homer, Thomas Eakins, and Georgia O'Keeffe. Those masterworks share space with works by artists Frederic Remington and Charles M. Russell, among others, a collection of American photographs, and one of the country's earliest daguerreotypes. Special exhibitions delve more deeply into such styles as American modernism, abstract art, and landscape photography. The museum also strives to educate visitors through children's programs, book clubs, and lectures by artists and scholars on topics such as why it is unsafe to eat the fruit painted in still lifes.

  • Texas Civil War Museum
    Shingled peaks and a lofty white balcony greet visitors as they stroll up to the Texas Civil War Museum, where more than 15,000 square feet of exhibits and collections work together to educate present generations on The War Between the States. The museum's themed sections weave a visual trek through time with artifacts preserved from both sides of the conflict, including infantry, cavalry, and artillery remnants. Medical relics and musical instruments supply additional glimpses into the war zone, and a collection of more than 300 Victorian dresses, which rotate on exhibit, showcases the style of women and celebrity cannons from that era. In addition to escorting guests through history, the museum also plays host to frequent events, such as monument ceremonies and live musical acts.
