Free Thursday night?

Thursday nights at the DMA are so fun. They have free live jazz music and it is so fun to go hand out and walk around looking at beautiful art!

There was so much to see and we hit it perfectly on Thursday night when the museum stays open to 9 or 10 pm. There was live jazz music in the restaurant the whole evening. We enjoyed the pottery, glassware and paintings. The artist list was very diverse and included Dali, Rembrandt, Tiffany, Henri Moore (sculpture), Whistler, Monet, Van Gogh,... More

Today a few friends and I explored the Perot museum . This building is very cool itself but there is lots to see and do inside. I suggest anyone check it out for yourself. The cost was 17 each but worth it.

The DMA is a wonderful museum that is now free to the public. Exhibitions may still require a fee, but they are often well worth the price.

free unless you want to see the current traveling exhibition, $10 to park. The permanent collection includes work by Rodin, Degas, Pisarro, Monet, Manet, and other well known artists. Well worth a visit. We just grabbed a bite to eat at the food truck vendors across the street by the park!

One of the best art museums we have been to. Just an amazing experience in a very manageable and beautiful building. Incredibly friendly staff. A must.

She and I had been told about DMA, well before the time of our visit. It is right up there with the best galleries of the world, with so many masterpieces to see. We especially liked the third floor reproduction of the villa in the French Riviera first built for Coco Chanel, and later acquired by Wendy and Emery Reeves,... More

We spent an afternoon sightseeing downtown, and this museum was one of our stops. It was free to my surprise, so it's a good value. Well maintained inside and out. It's a bit eclectic, seems to me it was put together based on collections it received, so it's a bit scattered. It doesn't have a niche. Nothing really stood out... More

The museum is free now, so I like to stop in from time to time and relax. Plenty of quiet spots, serene paintings, and solitude.
