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

Being born and raised in Dallas, Tx and having traveled across the US and Europe to some of the best art districts and museums in the world, I can honestly say that Dallas comes no where close. And this is for many reasons. For starters, a majority of what is currently the Dallas Art District, has only been constructed and... More

Loved walking around the Dallas Arts District, especially looking at the interesting skyscrapers and visiting the Nasher Sculpture Center and the Meyerson Symphony Center for an evening concert. Two places that I want to return to again and again! There are also attractive shops down here too, especially the ones operated by museums, such as the Crowe Collection and the... More

Love the Arts District with my favorite museum, the Nasher Sculpture Center and the Meyerson Center. Nice to have all the major cultural centers close together. Very special!

The Dallas Arts District is incredible, ecclectic, convenient, and constantly growing..it has to be one of the best and most comprehensive in the country. The epicenter is the Dallas Museum of Art and in the immediate vicinity of this is the Nasher Sculpture Garden, The Winspear Opera House, The Crow Collection of Asian Art, Meyerson Symphony Center, Dallas Theatre Center,...

Downtown Dallas is the wrong place for such great attractions. The social structure in Dallas made the downtown a ghost town starting in about 1964 and it remains so. yet these wonderful attractions that one simply must attend regularly are forcibly located there.
