We visited the museum on a Sunday. While there were a lot of people, it did not seem crowded. We were impressed with the vastness of the collections. We spend approximately two hours and did not see even half of the exhibits. Plan at least...More

Excellent artwork where you would expect it least. Super diversified - so many mediums and cultures represented. Several Monet, Manet, Picasso, Thomas Cole, Georgia OKeefe.... List goes on and on. Great museum - take your children as it’s as good an introduction to art as...More

This made it interesting, the rest is ok but not outstanding. We love art and therefore enjoy anything but there is nothing that would make me want to come back.

I love that DMofA is now free because I think children should be exposed to museums early and when it’s free you can go for just a little while at a time before they get bored and want to move on to something else.

I’ve been in museums around the world, and can’t believe I hadn’t been to the DMA before. It is world class! In addition to European and Early American Art, with works by famous artists, they have amazing exhibits of African, Asian, and Pacific art. Extensive...More

Good place to visit if you are on a relaxed weekend mood. It is a free entrance place. Worth to put it on your list.

Small, simple and free. This is what all museums should be like. I'm not the museum type, in fact, I stay as far away from them as possible (if you're seen well, I think you've seem them all) but this one is different. Take the...More

Great museum. But make sure you have enough time, it's bigger than it looks from outside. As the saying goes...Everything's Big in Texas! Great collections!

This art museum was very neat. Lots of variety, from ancient artifacts to very modern body part art. Very unique pieces and lots to see

I'm sorry, but I really don't know the answer to that but they are very helpful so I would think if you call the museum they could let you know. :)

Cab from Dallas Love Field to Dallas Museum of Art (2 Replies)
Our flight gets in Dallas Love Field about 1:00 p.m. on a Friday (this holiday weekend), and, since our friends won't get in for a few hours after, my husband and I are thinking about taking a cab to the Dallas Museum of Art while we wait. Google maps tells me it's about a 15 minute drive. Will this be an expensive cab ride (particuarly since we're coming from an airport)? I am also considering taking the bus and DART. But that trip will take about 45 minutes, and I'm concerned that any...More

Assuming you'll have luggage(?), you might want to contact the museum to see if they'll hold it while you visit the museum. Or maybe your luggage is checked through elsewhere with Dallas being a simple layover.....

Recently spent a week with my daughter in the Dallas area and for a bit of culture, we visited the Dallas Musuem of Art. The collection is decent, nicely laid out, nothing special, had a nice time...... but.... the current Jean Paul Gaultier exhibit is outstanding,. I am NOT a fashion person at all, but even if you know nothing about him, or haute couture designers, the staging of the exhibit is truly something to see. We were mesmerized once we walked in the door. His designs were unique...More

Did you tour the Reves Collection? It is one of the most outstanding displays I've seen. I rate the DMA very highly. Glad you enjoyed it overall.

Off the beaten track, interesting things to do in Dallas? (2 Replies)
I am very much looking forward to spending about three days in Dallas in late November. I have a few things lined up to do, including the Dallas Museum of Art, the Sixth Floor Museum and other such places. I was wondering if any locals could recommend somewhere to visit that isn't 100% aimed at tourists... I am particularly interested in art but would love to do something outdoorsy so I can see more of the area... even a bit out of Dallas would be okay as long as its easy enough to...More
