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

A free art museum, what a great distraction from the 100 degree heat index of Texas days! My husband doesn't care for art museums as much as me, but after walking around the city he suggested we stop in to cool off. I got to look around and see everything I wanted. I love Chihuly and was pleasantly surprised to... More

This museum is so unique in it's own little way. It's centered in Downtown Dallas creating it's own downtown museum district, perfect for strolling through on any good afternoon. The exhibits were free the last time I was there which is always an added plus. The parks right next to it also have sculptures and art forms worth taking your... More

We walked in knowing that the museum was free and started off on the 1st floor thinking how nice, but by the time we got upstairs to see all of the collections we were wow'd... especially because entrance is free! Love it.

It's in the Arts district, where you can visit very good museums. A very good and intresting museum, where you can see not only paintings but also very interesting pieces of different cultures. It's easy to visit as it has different floors and you can go easily from one to the other. One of the best museums in USA. It's... More

DMA might not be as famous as the Kimbell, but it is a lovely museum and I always have a great time when I go. Jazz on Thursdays is a staple and I love that they continue to showcase local jazz artists. No matter what the weather, you can always enjoy a fabulous evening of jazz and meet some fun... More

Small but interesting. It has everything, but it is easy to see in a day. Good collection of European paintings and decorative art.

Beautiful museum of Art, great exhibits, all free. Other Special Exhibits from time to time have a small fee , but well worth the price. Museum has a restaurant in side, good general Americana food.

The Museum is free unless you want to see special Exhibits which in my case YES Please!! I spent most of my afternoon looking at some wonderful art from some great masters such... More
