The DMA is free for all entrants all day every day! This is a must see attraction if you are visiting Dallas. As a Dallas native we take our kids to the kids part of the museum at least once a month. It is highly interactive and engaging for youngsters. The standing exhibits are good and there is at least... More

I live in Dallas, but grew up in Houston which has an amazing art and theater district. Moving to Dallas, I was happy to discover this museum stood up to my expectations. Exhibits have a nice range and the space is new and unfussy. Definitely check it out along with the Nasher Sculpture Garden (basically connected to the museum).

Well staffed museum runs special exhibits efficiently! Since the exhibits the DMA receives are usually world-known, there is always a line, but never a long wait! Make a day of it! See the DMA then head across the street and see the Nasher Sculpture Center! Make sure to take advantage of discounts for students and seniors!

I've seen art shows there and that's fine, but the restaurant is terrible, and the inside of the building is really Ugly. I come from New York and I'm use to the "MET" and this in no Met. Gray concrete walls in a museum makes me want to go to sleep.

Love the DMA, have been a proud supporter for years. Lots of fun family activities or wonder around by yourself. Great programs for adults with late night events, guest speakers and jazz on Thursday night, I visit often. Admission is now 100% free. Nice cafe with typical museum fare, sandwiches, salads. Great gift shop with sales items so you have... More

We took our kids here recently while visiting Klyde Warren Park. The museum is free (!) and has a delightful kids' area. My three boys (10,9,6) enjoyed viewing and making sculptures out of materials provided. We stayed for one hour and it could easily have been two.

For a "city" as opposed to a "state" art gallery, this place has an amazing display in terms go both quality and diversity. Well worth the visit.

We visited the museum during our Spring break trip and really enjoyed it. My son (15) and daughter (12) had a good time. There were several interactive things for them to enjoy. His favorite was the African exhibit with all of the masks and bead work and she liked the ancient Greek and Roman section. A fantastic bonus was the... More

The layout of the museum and the space is just perfect for viewing all the pieces. There is a very wide and excellent selection of exhibitions . Staff are really friendly and helpful and the facilities for a bite to eat or drink very good. I would visit again and recommend it to others .
