Should really rate higher than eighth on the list of things to do in Dallas. Some most interesting exhibits and an excellent Museum Shop...so necessary for the general souvenir hunter and the more scupulous collector.

The museum is a modern concrete minimal building with some patio areas with sculpture. A little bit of everything from several centuries of art, Chinese relics, Egyptian relics to some 50's fun. A little of lots.... but nothing memorable.

The DMA is free for all entrants all day every day! This is a must see attraction if you are visiting Dallas. As a Dallas native we take our kids to the kids part of the museum at least once a month. It is highly interactive and engaging for youngsters. The standing exhibits are good and there is at least... More

I live in Dallas, but grew up in Houston which has an amazing art and theater district. Moving to Dallas, I was happy to discover this museum stood up to my expectations. Exhibits have a nice range and the space is new and unfussy. Definitely check it out along with the Nasher Sculpture Garden (basically connected to the museum).

Well staffed museum runs special exhibits efficiently! Since the exhibits the DMA receives are usually world-known, there is always a line, but never a long wait! Make a day of it! See the DMA then head across the street and see the Nasher Sculpture Center! Make sure to take advantage of discounts for students and seniors!

I've seen art shows there and that's fine, but the restaurant is terrible, and the inside of the building is really Ugly. I come from New York and I'm use to the "MET" and this in no Met. Gray concrete walls in a museum makes me want to go to sleep.

Love the DMA, have been a proud supporter for years. Lots of fun family activities or wonder around by yourself. Great programs for adults with late night events, guest speakers and jazz on Thursday night, I visit often. Admission is now 100% free. Nice cafe with typical museum fare, sandwiches, salads. Great gift shop with sales items so you have... More

We took our kids here recently while visiting Klyde Warren Park. The museum is free (!) and has a delightful kids' area. My three boys (10,9,6) enjoyed viewing and making sculptures out of materials provided. We stayed for one hour and it could easily have been two.
