This is a free museum, except for its special exhibits, but who needs those when the permanent collection is so large and excellent. The sculpture garden is lovely but has fallen on hard times. Nonetheless, there is so much to see inside and it is quite diverse. I was particularly amazed at the quality and depth of the Ancient Americas... More

A nice collection comprising all regions of the world. Worth dedicating 2-3 hours to see most of the exhibits. Free for all but the featured exhibit. Safe parking in s secured lot below the museum for $12.

It is a well designed museum. You can get free bus transportation to this area. You can see a home owned by Coco Chanel. Right outside, you can find many food trucks for a great lunch.

Spent a wonderful evening here when they had an opening for a new exhibit. The permanent collection is vast and impressive. The layout of the museum is a bit unusual and not so user friendly but it is well worth the visit. A nice cafe is in the front of the museum. There is also a sculpture garden worth visiting.

First time visiting and could not believe the museum has Free general admission. It is clean and bright with beautiful artwork. It is a great way to spend a few hours.

This art museum certainly has an impressive collection of fine paintings and art from various parts of the world with special exhibitions. Great place to stay during a rainy day, too. You can easily spend a couple of hours here.

We visited the museum during a very quick trip to downtown Dallas and loved it. Lots of great modern art and beautiful installations. And it's FREE!

A small, but well appointed museum with excellent permanent collection and visiting exhibits. The recently expanded eatery options indoors and outside allow to make it a day at the museum, and the monthly late night Fridays are perfect for the art lovers' date night.
