A must see in Dallas. Excellent and impressive collection spanning contemporary to the bronze age. Stayed 4 hours until closure and wasn't finished by a long shot. Did I mention entry is free? Street parking is $1 per hour at the meter. Outstanding!

DMA is free. At least the general exhibits are all free. Special/temporary exhibits have tickets though. This begets the question - why wouldn't one go there as often as one can find time to? Some of the exhibits are compelling and the museum is really organized quite well. They have some interesting art organized by artists and geography. Well spread... More

This was a great way to spend a hot day in Dallas....inside the cool air conditioning learning about all types of art, from paintings, to statues, modern contemporary art and everything else you can imagine. It was not crowded and you could easily spend 6 hours reading all the history about each piece. But we only spent a couple of... More

There are many wonderful exhibits. We started at 11 am and did not get to see everything before we had to leave at 3pm. Lunch in the cafe was excellent, reasonably priced, and nice environment. Museum is free, except for special exhibits.

Now that the museum has free admission, there is no reason not to go. World class art! Arts and Letters Live events! If you come to Dallas, make this a part of your visit to the arts district, along with the Nasher Sculpture Center and Crow Collection of Asian Art. Enjoy!

Loved the cubists and the impressionists-- plus the special exhibit of drawings-- the Mind's Eye and the Chihuly glass is lovely.

Somewhat small, but really liked the organization of rooms with art and collectibles. Letters from Winston Churchill interesting.

Lots of art from different periods to see. Plan to spend hours looking. Parking is $10 but underground out of the heat. A fair trade off I think.
