Fort Worth's Cultural District is a world renowned area of museums and public buildings.  The centerpiece of the area is the Will Rogers Memorial Center, constructed as a part of the 1936 Texas Centennial Celebration.  Over the years, many of the city's museums located to the district with buildings designed by Philip Johnson, Louis Kahn, Tadao Ando, and David Schwarz.  New museum buildings have now been designed by Legorreta+Legorreta and Renzo Piano.

The area included in the Cultural District by both forks of the Trinity River on the north, east, and south,  Montgomery Street and an irregular boundary on the west back to the West Fork of the Trinity River.
