From the stellar permanent collection that I never get tired of, to the great new art in several special gallery spaces DMA is one of my favorite arty spots in Dallas. And it's FREE! Their weekend events with live music are also fun. While you are in the area, make sure you also hit Klyde Warren Park and the food... More

For a free museum, it really did have a great selection! We took a lazy Sunday and strolled through the museum which was relaxing and quiet. There weren't very many people which allowed us to take our time and enjoy each exhibit. Definitely a perfect place to beat the Texas heat and enjoy some beautiful pieces of art. I will... More

Had less than 2 hours to spare before we had to head to DFW airport so my local friends suggested to check this place out. It's free afterall - why not? (Note: Paid $10 for garage parking. We didn't attempt to look for street parking so there may have been free parking out there. ) It was a great recommendation.... More

A long time member of this museum. We try to take in most of the exhibits when we can. The staff are always so helpful and friendly and there is a feeling of “this is my museum”. Great place to eat for a fast easy lunch. The placement and lighting of the art work on exhibit makes each piece stand... More

With all the exhibits you have to stay all day. There is just so much to see that you should plan a long trip. Modern, classical, neoclassical, Egyptian, colonial, there is something for everyone here.

I love any museum that allows me to enjoy works by the brilliant Impressionist artists. DMA contains paintings by Renior, Monet, Degas, Van Gogh, and more. General admission is free, but if you want to see the exhibit on display, you have to pay extra. We did and it was well worth the $8.

Absolutely fabulous and diverse collection of amazing art and artefacts. There was Mexican pottery, French impressionism, American masterpieces all in a fabulous air conditioned building. I had not expected such quality and variety 10 minutes walk from the Zaza. I had 90 minutes to spend and would have loved to spend the whole day there. There is no fee for... More

Not impressed comparing other museums in big cities. May need variety of different artists. Entrance free.
