Very well thought out and laid out museum. A lot of interesting art spanning many diverse cultures. The exhibit staff were amazingly friendly. Had several pleasant and informative conversations initiated by museum staff that added to an already very enjoyable experience.

A topnotch city museum that compares favorably with the best in the world. Though not as colossal as the Louvre or extensive as the Met, it covers many areas of World Art - Greek, Roman, Western European, Early American, Asian, Pacific, African, Impressionist, modern. And it has trophy pieces by many diverse masters - Sargent, Lawrence, Tiffany, Picasso, Moore, Rodin,... More

Interesting Gallery and is free to see for the permanent collections. Well spaced out and very accessible. Certainly great if you have an interest in art but certainly not at the level of MOMA or Tate galleries.

The first time I was here it was a date, and on this second time, it was with family and it was just as great. This round I was able to look around more with leisure and interest. Not much has changed but I do feel that the exhibits have gotten grander. I was amazed at the added features and... More

The building is impressive and the guides are friendly and helpful. I am not well enough educated on art to judge, but there are several different types and areas. Give it a try.

I was very pleasantly surprised, after spending an couple of enjoyable hours there I felt that I'd like the chance to return. There are a variety of different exhibits. I visited the Jackson Pollock exhibit, the Asia Africa and Pacific, an Islamic art... More

Particularly enjoyed the Jackson Pollock special exhibit. Focused largely on his dark period and included quite a few pieces that had never before been shown together. It was a true treat, well worth visiting.

We visited the Dallas Museum of Art last week and were very favorably impressed. Their collection is wonderful and extensive and the physical building is quite large and user friendly. The staff is very helpful. A wonderful place to visit if you are in Dallas.

While stranded at DFW International Airport during Snowpocalypse, we went to Dallas to its art museum. The collection isn't strong in any one category, but it is diverse, eclectic, and built around several individual collection. Unlike other museums, the guards are uniformly helpful, and eager to point out the highlights of the areas they're protecting.
