Didn't do the full tour, thought it was too expensive, has a good gift shop and gives a feel for the TV series. Not too pushy.

If you are coming here looking for the sets from the show you will be disapointed. The only think they used Southfork for were the outside shots by the pool, driveway, and some scenes from the last season of the "New" Dallas. Everything else was shot on sound stages in Los Angeles. That said, the experience was worth it for... More

I was overwhelmed by this place. Coming from the UK I didn't expect the tour to be so hands on! There is a small tram ride from the museum to the house through the grounds and then you are given such a wealth of knowledge from your guide on absolutely anything to do with the Tv series and more. We... More

Good to see the home of the Ewing family being a fan of the original Dallas. Smaller than expected especially the pool area. The guide was excellent, giving a lot of information without being boring. Left much to ourselves to explore the house but guide was very approachable at all times. The JR murder room was a bit ghoulish but... More

I agree the prices are steep and the whole surface is touristy. That said the staff made the whole experience one to remember. My wife and daughter took a horseback ride on the property and the handler was a friendly and excellent instructor for my two brand new cowgirls. The photographer answer a ton of questions as did the other... More

Time it was closed! Well overpriced for what you get. Very dated, no one there, cafe was poor, few animals left anymore, house in disrepair - balconies not safe etc and hence not allowed onto them. It brings back fond memories of watching Dallas but really not worth the money or to be honest the time!! I would avoid if... More

Had some extra time in Dallas and decided to visit the Southfork Ranch. I only had a certain amount of time to spend and arrived before the 9 am opening time. However, their opening time was 10 am, not 9 as stated on Tripadvisor. Very disappointed as I could not wait an additional hour waiting until they opened, plus spending... More

I was a massive fan of Dallas back in the '80s. It was one of the TV Programmes that brought the U.S. into our living rooms! On arrival, we headed into the Southfork Visitor Center and Gift Store. There are plenty of souvenirs to be had here and there are also tea and coffee making facilities and cold drinks for... More

Silly me, I managed to stop my tear upon reaching the location that started it all!!!!!!! My parents would have loved it. After passing the gates, where lots of work was being done, you reach the Visitor's centre where you pay your fee and visit the little museum until the tour guide, with his amazing Texan accent that sounds as...
