We stepped inside just before close to get out of the Texas heat. Even with just 30 minutes left in the day we left changed. To stand so close to such magnificent works of art is such a privilege. And because the majority of the exhibits are free, you don't mind stopping by for a short visit. We plan to... More

Everyone will find something they love here. It is a large museum with all kinds of art. They have a children's section and a beautiful store within the museum.

We came here on a night where it was opened late and it was so worth the trip. We tried out the scavenger hunt with the codes and by the end of the night we ended up with a loot of 2 reusable DMA bags and 2 DMA rulers. We would have gotten the free parking pass too if only... More

A museum with some stunning art especially by the Spanish artists that decorate its walls. A museum where one has to spend time and discover all the beautiful gems

We loved it & what a terrific collection. Unfortunately the African Art collection is being renovated presently and off view. ...but this... More

What could be better for summer? Free admission, air condition, exhibits for kids, and exhibitions that are reasonably priced for admission. Food trucks are right outside and the park makes a great next stop.

This is not a large art museum by most city standards, which makes it manageable and really fun. Good restaurant. Outstanding permanent collection and very special traveling exhibits. Fun for a couples outing, but I've enjoyed girl trips there the most! Good for all ages.

The DMA has a public Friday night once each month with special presentations, bands, lectures, and more along with food available both inside the museum and outside from food trucks. The range of art available for viewing is great, but the ambiance with literally thousands of people their enjoying the DMA and the museums around it all at the same... More

I did not expect to see Monets and Van Goghs in Dallas.... but there you go! A pretty good museum, found the contemporary pieces quite dull but it may be personal choice
