Love to go down to the arts district for many occasions, the symphony, plays, musicals, the museums, great restaurants. Impromptu art and music. Plan on spending some time if you take the architecture tour. The arts houses are pretty incredible, designed by world renowned architects all in one place. Great architecture, great art, great performances all together within close proximity.

What a concept...locate the various arts enterprises all in one place. You can walk from one to the next. The Dallas Museum of Art is free of charge (thanks to Ross Perot). When in Dallas, spend a day here.

We enjoyed The Dallas Museum of Art and the Nasher Sculpture Gallery Museum in a very efficient way thanks to the art park. You can see many different venues and only park once or walk here once! Loved it!

The Dallas Arts District is a place you can now go and spend an afternoon enjoying the museums, parks, and restaurants. Very nicely done.

We visited the Dallas Arts District for the Spring Break Kickoff Block Party and had a great time! The event was in conjunction with the Target Family First Saturdays, and there were special activities at each museum specially geared toward children's interest. All the activities encouraged family participation, and it was so nice to bump into several families we knew!... More

I was lucky enough to visit Dallas on the first Saturday of the month so signed on for the $5 guided walking tour of this interesting district. Our guide, an architect, was informative, patient, witty and provided wonderful facts about the stunning new and fascinating older buildings. {Tour provided by Dallas Center for Architecture - you can book on line]....

Visited several spots on foot. Art Museum was free and lots to see. The food trucks line up at Hyde park. Lots of variety. The Baptist church is a site to see. Taking the dart or TRE train is super cheap. $5 a day!

Amazing combination of art disciplines with an innovative park that connects the "2 sides" of Downtown Dallas. The DMA, Klyde Warren Park, the new Perot Museum, Opera House, Nasher Sculpture Center, Winspear, Crow Museum all in one central location, with the book end of One Arts Plaza that has plenty of places to fine dine or grab a bite at...

It probably takes about 1 hour to walk around the entire neighbourhood, but it is a nice walk. It was especially beautiful with the autumn colours mixed in with the modern steel-and-glass architecture. If you have extra time do visit the museums.

One after the other, the opera house, the symphony hall, the art museum, the sculpture center, and the theater create an impressive campus of palaces of the arts. I don't recall any such concentration of so many arts facilities anywhere. In sheer number of buildings dedicated to different artisitic disciplines, I don't recall such a campus. Not even Lincoln Center... More
