This is exactly what an Art museum should be all about! Set in a lovely building with outdoor spaces to complement the interior, the DMA is part of the very fabric of Dallas. The collection is outstanding - don't miss the Picasso, Monet or Van...More

Huge museum- plan for plenty of time or break it up into a couple of days. Helpful staff and nice cafe on the main level. Best part- most of it is free.

I am very impressed by the holdings at the DMA. We went expecting to visit for an hour and spent 2. It holds a surprising amount of masterpieces. Will be back in June to visit the 2nd floor and the sculpture garden!

I’m not an art expert, but I do enjoy wandering around an art museum occasionally. There were definitely some exhibits and pieces that were just...strange...to my non-cultured eye. But there also were several pieces by artists whose names I knew (Monet, O’keefe, Picasso, Van Gogh)....More

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
