The Christian Arts Museum, nestled in the Fort Worth Museum District, at 3221 Hamilton Avenue, is one treasure not to be missed. The museum itself is small, so depending on the depth of your interest in the relics and artworks, one can pass an informative and fascinating hour or handful of hours here.
Open Wednesdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., this museum is free and photography is even encouraged. The staff is proud of their exhibits and eager to discuss their origins and the donors of such eye-pleasing pieces. The art ranges from the enormous, life-size wax recreation of the Last Supper, complete with an audio description of its creation, to a collection of crosses, to sculptures created from stones collected from Fort Worth's less positive past. Each piece has an enthralling story to tell.
Such unique niche museums deserve some attention as they contribute to the lesser-known flavor of the city. So if you are spending a day in Fort Worth, make sure to make a stop at the Christian Arts Museum.
