The only nice thing I can say is that the building itself is lovely. I have been here for two exhibits and a wedding. All three visits were made awful by the staff and volunteers. Their event coordinator has to be one of the rudest people I've ever encountered.

Besides an interesting art museum they also offer children's art classes. The local school district has a large show of student art there each year that is very impressive. The shows change out on a regular basis usually spotlighting individual artists. Free to the public. Check for current shows and hours. Located in downtown Arlington.

Love this museum; its always packed with special history and notable events. Arlington Tx has an abundant of history ...a town with a few previous names, heck this town was once noted for its healing Springs, which was located in the middle of downtown.

The ambiance is beautiful, and the roof top offers spectacular views. Even more, you'll love the price! I do love planning events here.

Had to see the Vivian Maier exhibit while it was here. Museum staff was amazing. Went out of their way to make sure we were well informed and took pictures of us. Enjoyable experience.

Having just watched the documentary on Netflix my children and I were very excited to go see her work. It's a small museum with limited parking spaces out front. When you walk in there is a small table to pay, $8 for adults free for children under 12. It's rather informal, the first level had lots of tables set up... More

The museum was very fortunate to be able display some very beautiful prints from Vivian Maier and it is very worthwhile if you love good, unpretentious photography.

This is a small 2-story museum which appears to host one visiting exhibit at a time. I visited to see the Vivian Maier exhibit which is running here until late August. The setup is a bit informal; there is a table at the entrance and a small museum store in an open area in a far corner of the room--which... More

The Dallas/Ft. Worth area is known for its world-class museums, such as the Kimbell, Amon Carter, Ft. Worth Modern and Dallas Museum of Art, among others. If you are in the area, don't miss these. But Arlington has its own downtown museum, located minutes from AT&T Stadium, Globe Life Park and Six Flags Over Texas. The Arlington Museum of Art... More
