We have been family members to this museum for over 30 years. We visit often and are always seeing something new. My 92 year old mother was amazed by "Red on Canvas". There was something about the simplicity of the work that she found captivating....More

….they have made in rebuilding and then displaying the collection. It is hard to imagine a worse installation of what is probably a fairly encyclopedic collection, as no overall concept, neither chronological, by material and techniques, styles or other usual paradigms for museological presentation is...More

The train stop is about 2 blocks away and is convenient to travel there. The Nasher sculpture museum is very near too.

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
