The museum is very modern, well organized, and with plenty of things to see, from different cultures, and great collections. I personally was amazed to see things, that I had never seen in other museums.

Helpful and courteous staff, well arranged artefacts and the variety in the collection makes this museum and interesting place to visit. This may not be one of the biggest collections, nor an esoteric one. But if you are at Dallas and have a couple of hours to spare, it is worth visiting the Museum.

I was so impressed by this museum!!! You could not beat the price! It was free! Free! I couldn't believe that. You had to purchase a ticket to the special exhibit, but that ticket was only $8. I was so presently surprised. And the museum is so big. There are floor large floors with many impressive collections. There were many... More

The museum is free but there is a charge for the featured exhibit. We saw "Bouquets" which was beautiful but limited. The artists were famous but the paintings themselves were not well known. The other collections held at the museum weren't particularly interesting. There is an outdoor display area as well. If you have extra time or are interested in... More

We decided to take a trip to DMA. It was free admission...can't beat that! The cost for the special exhibit (floral still paintings) was $8. It was an incredible retrospective to see floral paintings through the decades, centuries. The other exhibits were very well done. I think it's a good collection of different periods and regions. There was a replica... More

DMA is a decent art museum and I've hear that some people are surprised by this. I've been a few times and have found that their displays do not change quite as frequently as I would like them to. I highly suggest DMA for a date night.

I love museums! DMA is amazing, great variety of art from all ages and parts of the world. On Thursday, museum is open late, and the fact that it is free ( just pay $10 for parking) makes it a must to visit when in Dallas!

I love any museum that makes its permanent collection free--charging for special exhibitions is only fair and this one, "Bouquets: French Still-Life Painting from Chardin to Matisse," was simply marvelous. It closes on 2/8/15 so if your read this review any time soon, get yourself over there ASAP. One thing that amazed me was how many works in the permanent... More
