I love the museum, it is always a treat to visit. My granddaughter was impressed with the Churchill Collection. She is 13 and although we breezed through a lot of the exhibits, Churchill and modern art were her favorites. I was disappointed in the cafe, the food was mediocre at best.

Very nice, large museum. It does have a bit of a confusing flow and you often have to double back to see everything.

Great place to go. I've gone with family and taken clients here before. Be careful if going during the school year during the day. Sometimes it can get packed with younger school children on field trips, but most of the time they are well behaved.

Living in the DFW area I had never visited here. It was a wonderful way to spend a Sunday afternoon. So much to see and a great collection of art. Beautiful area.

First of all it's free to get in!! I couldn't believe it but it's true. We went on a Thursday evening & the restaurant has free jazz. It was packed, and there were no seats so we didn't sit & enjoy the music but you could hear the music as you walked thru the museum. My favorite was the jewelry... More

We went on Thurday night and the admission was free (except the special exhibits). While we were there there was a blues band in the cafe, and the exhibits were outstanding. The layout is a little maze-like, but it was fun to wander around investigating the different locations. We also wandered around the sculpture garden, which was impressive, but seemed... More

Great museum - really nice space outside too with gardens and restaurant/cafe. A bit of an oasis in the city. The museum had some very good contemporary art and the building was beautiful. The Rachel Whiteread is a close walk to here as are lots if nice dining options. Parking was tricky but found a place eventually for $10 nearby.

We LOVE this museum. We have been several times and they have great special exhibits (KingTut)! The staff is always very informative and knowledgable about the exhibits.
