We brought our kids here and they loved it (well my daughter did and my son tolerated it). The engaging game of tracking the different art pieces kept the kids involved and we made it through a lot of the exhibits. The DMA has some great pieces and we will be back and hope you will too!

Admission is free, so I can't complain too bad. The exhibits were enlightening, the place was clean and well lit, and the craft activities were fun. I just wish there were a place I could go without hearing a child scream hysterically.

This is a great museum. The people who work here are very friendly and helpful. They have a great variety of art. We visited the 3rd and 4th floors first to see the 1700s-1900s. Then we visited the modern art on the first floor. It is amazing that this museum is free, too!

I was amazed at how large the museum is and that it's FREE! How awesome is that? Love that they make it easy for those who may not be exposed to the arts to be able to enjoy and learn. Great mixture of pieces from modern to classic from all over the world. The staff is warm and welcoming. The... More

As a lover and student of art, I was really, really excited to visit this museum. For such a large city, I knew it would be great. I was very sorely mistaken about that... The collection itself has some highlights in the European art division- Manet, Monet, Picasso, Van Gogh, Pissaro to name a few. All are much lesser known... More

This museum is free to the public and a beautiful way to spend a day. In the middle of Dallas surrounded by plenty to do. There is a park across the street for a leisurely stroll and lunch at one of the food trucks. The day I was there 8-10 food trucks lined the road with shaded seating comfortably located... More

We have visited art museums all over the world and this one is not an impressive collection. We paid to see the two exhibits that required that and were so disappointed with what was included. Everything should be free. The only part we really enjoyed was the impressionist area and the collection of items like furniture, glasswork, etc. For our... More

DMA general admission is free (excepting special exhibits). Not bad for a world-class art museum. It runs the gamut of artistic offerings. My favorites include Pollock, Frederick Church, Van Gogh, Monet, Cezanne, and more. Great place to bring the family, a date, or enjoy a personal stroll through everything from Ancient Mediterranean Art to European masters.
