“best museum”
Reviewed June 16, 2014

I feel this is the best museum Ive visited so far. 4 good hours and Im not done yet! There was so much to see, and many artworks are so beautiful. The staff there were proactive and were very helpful. There was an extra exhibit I had to pay to enter, so I didn't. It is free admission and I only paid for the parking $10. Even the children section is happening for adults to try too!

“Asian Exhibit was awesome!”
Reviewed June 12, 2014

We went on 'family' day which meant there were lots of various activities to witness. Including a traditional tea with women dressed in formal Chinese clothing. Origami instruction was fun - we made cranes together. And the artwork and different pieces that they had on display were fascinating. It is difficult to find such a large collection of art and artifacts of this type in one place. Such a wonderful experience.

“Amazing!!”
Reviewed June 9, 2014 via mobile

Great art exhibitions from all around the world and free! This will be one of the first places i visit next time i return to DAllas. It does take a whole day or two to enjoy every section of the museum. MOndays closed and on thursdays opens till 9pm. I fully recommend it to everyone who appreciates art :)

“One of the best free attractions in the city”
Reviewed June 9, 2014

You can't see the special exhibitions for free but the permanent collection is outstanding and well worth your time. The museum is open late on Thursdays and is within walking distance to other attractions, including the new Klyde Warren Park and the incredible Nasher Sculpture Garden (not free but worth seeing).
