Great museum

This museum is downtown and is walking distance from everywhere. I was impressed with the collection of art work. It is a very relaxing place for everyone.

My fiancé lives in Dallas and on one of my many visits, we decided to come here. It was great and fun way to while away the day. The staff were beyond helpful and the exhibits made you feel as if you were traveling the world. We loved it.

The Museum of Art was just the right size for me.It is large enough to offer a good variety but not so large that you can't get through it all in a few hours. Art is nicely displayed, not too crowded together. Written info on the pieces was informative and easy to understand.

It was a place for a first date that end up as long term relationship. For both of us it was extremely boring experience. We both expected more from a major Dallas Museum. If you are not a fan of modern Art - find some other place to see. I heard that it has days, when you can visit it... More

Fabulous collections, well presented in a great location and staffed by angels, who can't do enough to help and answer any questions. I loved my afternoon here

I wanted to see the Dallas Museum of Art's famous Jackson Pollack, so I was kind of disappointed to hear it wasn't on display during our visit. We were pleasantly surprised by a small exhibit on Islamic art (who knew we'd find that in Dallas?!) Their modern collection is quite nice, but we didn't have time to see it all... More

This was a wonderful place to get some culture and "take in" Dallas. I am still very impressed that this museum is open to the public at no charge. Beautiful facility and grounds. The staff is a little rough, but most of them were very nice.

By making general admittance entry free, you can stroll the DMA whenever you please. Their permanent gallery is amazing. Touring exhibitions are reasonably priced. The cafe food is delicious. I like to go here and just enjoy the beauty and quiet. You should too ;-)

My 14 year old son loved this place. Mainly because he liked laughing at some of the modern art (he's decided he wants to be a modern artist and make bizarre sculptures...preferably ones that look like they could be made in an afternoon), but hey, art is supposed to engage you, right? There is a lot of traditional art here... More
