Paid a visit here after the nearby park and really enjoyed looking at all the exhibitions in a lovely airy and spacious place. Loved the layout. This is probably more suited to older children and adults as you relinquish your bags on entry. No food or drink allowed. I asked to bring water and wasn't allowed. So small children needing...

This is a free and wonderful museum. Well worth the stop. It has many pieces that one does not see all too often including furniture, silver pieces, one of Monet's Lilies and several other masters'. The museum is large and well organized. My son and I actually went one day and it was not enough to cover it all and... More

This is a must see. I really enjoyed the visit. The site was more than what I imagine it to be and the tour guide really explained things in detail as she walked with us.

FREE!!! Yes free and just fantastic. What a great place to visit with the family. It's huge so it can even be a visit that's broken out into a couple of days.

Made it through about half the exhibits in the time I had. Clean modern architecture - no charge when I was there on Sunday. Cafe on site.

Lovely spot to walk around. It's not large so it is easy to see the whole museum. Variety of art forms, including furnishings, dinner ware and personal belongings of Coco Channel.

This museum is free and has a wonderful collection of art. The Jazz on Thursday evening was wonderful too. Great to be able to view the artwork while listening to the jazz as well.

If you have read anything about the Dallas Art Scene, you will know that Dallas has the biggest Arts District in the US. This includes the Dallas Museum of Art. This attraction is much bigger than it looks from the outside. There are always cool events going on including special night events. The Museum is also now free.

We went on a Friday night and the place was packed. Lots to see and do a course as there are many sculptures and paintings to look at and admire. The parking was $10 at the museum and we didn't know so we parked in one of the place is about a block away and it was the same price.... More
