“Great Museum”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

This is a great way to spend a few or more hours in downtown Dallas. This museum has a variety of art and sculpture to interest most anyone. There is the Nasher and Crow museums and very nice park just right across the street as well if your inclined to make a day of it.

“A nice way to escape Dallas summer heat”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

We enjoyed our visit and not just to be cool. They have a large collection covering many areas of art-perhaps too many. There didn't appear to be a lot of focus their collection. Nice items to view, but many WOW ones. Would go again.

“Just right”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

Everything I 'like' about museums. Not too big or overdone or crowded. Wonderful range of work so there is something for everyone. Plus, admission is free in the summer months! The JFK installation was very special.

“Excellent museum”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

Loved everything and spent two days there, because I wanted to listen to all the information they had available at their audio tour (from your smartphone). If you like art, this is your place in Dallas.Nice restaurant try the chef salad (there is a chef, and he prepares your salad in front of you) . Jazz on Thursdays at 6, real fun. Free entrance.
