The Dallas/Ft. Worth area is known for its world-class museums, such as the Kimbell, Amon Carter, Ft. Worth Modern and Dallas Museum of Art, among others. If you are in the area, don't miss these. But Arlington has its own downtown museum, located minutes from AT&T Stadium, Globe Life Park and Six Flags Over Texas. The Arlington Museum of Art... More

My friend and I went because we got a Groupon for it. It was a pretty small museum but it had some interesting pieces. We only spent about 30 minutes there and saw/discusses everything. The staff was very friendly.

The museum is small and doesn't have a permanent exhibit. I went to see the exhibit on Toulouse Lautrec and other contemporary French painters. I thoroughly enjoed it. The all-volunteer staff were very friendly and knowledgeable of the exhibit.

Well staged, wide range, a pleasure to view in a smaller museum,film was an added extra. Walking up the curved stairs while viewing was a little disconcerting.

This museum leaves a LOT to be desired. I have a membership and attend all events but always am disappointed. They try to make the exhibit sound good but when you get there, it is so 'not worth it'. The Christmas Tree exhibit was so trashy. The trees were 'kind of' decorated with old, terribly used ornaments. Some had only... More

Recently visited the Toulouse-Lautrec exhibit with friends. It was a neat exhibit and a nice way to spend a couple hours out of the sun. The museum is reasonably priced as well as has discounts for students, librarians and military. The museum is 2 floors with a movie/film area on the first floor. There is a small gift shop counter...

Saw a poster for a traveling exhibition here, and stopped in about 2 hours before closing. It was a very nice exhibit, but was really surprised that the staff did not quite realize how nice. Yes, it is a city museum in a suburb right between Dallas and Ft. Worth. Yes, either of those towns easily dwarf Arlington in terms... More

So my art was displayed here as a child in the AISD, and I took art classes here in the basement. It's a great community venue. I also brought my daughter for Halloween. She had so much fun! it was the highlight of our trick or treating.

Arlington isn't a world renowned metropolis. There's no MoMA, but that doesn't matter. I saw an AMAZING Ansel Adams exhibit, here. A wonderful installation, and a great docu. Everything I've seen here, has been delightfully surprising. This is also a great wedding/reception venue
