I really enjoyed walking through this extensive collection of Asian art, which included pieces from all over the far east. From paintings and costumes, to carvings, sculptures and even furniture, this museum has got it all.

Stumbled across this small but outstanding museum while visiting Dallas. The museum is free, but they do accept donations. There are three levels. Each has unique pieces from all of Asia. We spent about an hour and a half looking at the collection.

Civic Center
Civic Center is the seat of power for all things
government and performance-related in the city.
Although its streets are best walked during daytime,
numerous cultural gems are within close proximity to
one another. The symphony, opera, ballet, and jazz
center offer year round entertainment within the
shadow of the city’s Beaux-Arts crown jewel: the gold
tipped dome of City Hall.
