If you're staying in the arts district definitely worth a walk here. I believe it's open late on Fridays also.

This museum is really beyond my expectation. I didn't expect such a large volume and high quality collection in an EVERYDAY FREE art museum. Apprently it's not a rival of Met or Chicago museum of arts, but it's better than some other art museums which charge an admission fee (say, Houston museum of arts). We stayed there for 2 hours...

I come from Chicago, home to TripAdvisor's #1 Museum in the World for 2014. I've been there several times, and it's darned impressive. How does Dallas stack up? Well, it's free, which is fantastic. What better way to foster a love of the arts than by sharing them with the public for free? I loved that. Parking was $10, which... More

They even do a late night event each month that usually has with a lot going (bands, speakers, art, etc.) We've gone to... More

Free admission! One of the nicest collections of pre-Columbian art from what is now Peru, Mexico I have seen, great installations. Also a reconstruction of a villa in the south of France originally owned by Coco Chanel with fantastic art on the walls- Monet, Renoir- you get the idea.

I had the best time at this museum. It's free to get in, and there was a free lecture by one of the curators that day. The lecture was well-attended (mostly by locals) and I learned quite a bit about several pieces in the collection.
