Always nice exhibits and displays in this building. I make sure and visit every year during the State Fair of Texas. Old but very well maintained. A must see.

We have lived in the Dallas area for 35+ years and have traveled world-wide (as is apparent from our reviews). We always look for sites which uniquely represent the place we are visiting. The Texas Hall of Fame at Fair Park is the one site in Dallas which uniquely evokes Texas and its history. In addition, the art-deco buildings which... More

I went to hear speaker's at the regular Dallas Historical Society. The auditorium is large and nice, but the exhibits upstairs are definitely sparse and wanting. The front with the golden warrior shooting his bow is a beautiful item to grace the entrance, just not much inside.

My son and daughter-in-law's wedding reception was held at the Hall of State. An absolutely beautiful venue. And it's captivating to recognize all the rich Texas history recorded and celebrated there!

Many interesting things to see regarding the history of our great state! If you are at Fair Park, don't miss it. If you go to the state fair, make sure you drop in to Hall of State, but leave your beverages outside.

Interesting exhibits during the state fair but I'm not certain it's worth the trip if you aren't already there. Its an old building with not much to see if there isn't a special exhibit you are visiting.

Part of the Texas Centennial Fair of 1936, this glorious Deco building was one of the highlights of our trip. We enjoyed the monumental murals depicting Texas history and the wonderful Texas-Deco style details of the building and its fixtures. (As you can imagine, motifs included longhorn cattle and cacti). On the day of our visit there was an informative... More
