A lovely, refined, serene museum directly across the streets from both the DMA and the Nasher. From the gracious welcome by the desk/host to the docents in each room, this museum provides a refuge from the sometimes busy streets and guests at other museums (and the deck park). Admission is FREE, with donations politely suggested. Asian art of course, jades,... More

The outdoor exhibits are lovely. The grounds are very nice. The quality of the museum is very much driven by the temporary show. The first we saw in Jan was lovely and interesting. This last one was not worth the admission.

Crow collection has a wonderful permanent exhibit of jade pieces from Southeast Asia. Not only these pieces are beautiful, but the exhibition is organized in a way to help visitors understand what is jade (jadeite and nephrite stones) and what is not. There is a full spectrum of jadeite and nephrite colors, as well as items that are sometimes are... More

I've been to the Crow collection of Asian Art several times and I have found it to be a wonderful place every time. The building is stunning and newly remodeled so it is a piece of art in itself. The collection of Asian art is small, however, never seizes to entertain me. I would recommend visiting the Nasher and the... More

When a museum has free admission (donations are accepted but absolutely not required) it's nice to pop in and enjoy a few treasures. The current Japanese fashion exhibit is eye-opening and fun. There is also currently a full suit of samurai armour that is fabulous. The permanent exhibits are interesting and well displayed. This is a small and very peaceful... More

The Crow Collection of Asian Art is a free museum (donations are accepted and graciously acknowledged) where you can learn about jade/jadeite, see stunning examples of Asian art & a samurai suit, & a stone house facade, along with the Krishna paintings of B. G. Sharma (which remind me of Moghul art), then stroll thru a wonderful, peaceful sculpture garden.... More

I'm fascinated with the big egos in Texas ...... but its nice to put your art collection on the sidewalk around the building named after yourself .......so many can enjoy! Early for a business meeting in the building at was a nice way to spend a little time .....with no cost of admission .....very peaceful environment.

The Crow Collection of Asian Art is one of the finest museums I have ever had the pleasure of visiting. This smallish museum is in the heart of downtown Dallas, located in the Arts District, the museum consists of over 600 pieces of fine art, and you can also enjoy it's fine sculpture garden. Admittance is always free, although a... More

I've sampled many meditation venues and this place is top-notch. You can't beat the setting. The instructor was the very best I've ever had. Try it!

For a free entrance fee, it's a great deal and a less crowded location. Wish they had more interesting exhibits though.
