Of course, we all know the museums are a great source of beautiful art, but did you know that on Friday nights, the DMA is open until midnight? Live music, food, drinks, dancing, and crafts, in addition to the exhibits. I recently attended the '20's night. There were more people there in costume in their '20's, then the people you... More

I took my daughter and niece (both tweens) to the DMA while on a trip to Dallas recently as neither had been to a real museum and we loved it! There is a huge collection of art from all over the world, plenty of exhibits to keep you busy looking for hours. Additionally, it's free admission, which makes it even... More

I last visited this museum in January, 2015. I returned to find it as wonderful as it was the first time. They had a great special exhibit, which was different from the last one. The museum is free, but the special exhibits are well worth the few bucks. I went early on a Saturday, following a visit to the Nasher... More

I have always loved visiting art museums and so last year for my birthday my boyfriend took me to the DMA. The idea of being able to visit without charge is amazing and the variety of artwork available to see can match any taste. Going on a night when there is live music is a must!

Visited here whilst on business and really enjoyed the quite varied exhibits. The star of the show is the Reves House collection. The entire contents/ collection from the Reves mansion - what a collection of furniture and particularly impressionist art. The mansion was so tastefully done and this is recreated here (incidentally the house was built for COco Chanel by... More

The art collection covers a long time of art history of diverse countries. The staff is super friendly and entrance is for free! :) Worth a visit!

I very much enjoy this place. The exhibits change every so often but other than that I enjoy the outside setting more than the inside. It is huge and the Jazz nights are great!

Admission to the DMA's collection is free -- a nice perk. Loved both the European and American art collections, especially the mammoth painting of icebergs by Frederic Church. The decorative arts collection is outstanding and really interesting if you take time to read the information.

Such a wonderful museum to spend the day. So many exhibits you can see for free. The place is truly beautiful and easy to get to. The gift shop is a little on the boring side and a bit pricey.
