“Beautiful architecture”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2012

Museum discusses Dallas history, which was more interesting than I expected. Building was a former Victorian-era courthouse and has very interesting detailing. The lighted Mobil Oil Pegasus sign is not to be missed. Walk around the exterior of the building for views of its architecture and other downtown Dallas buildings.

This museum preserves historical documents and photographs and has quite a few interesting displays relating to Texas and Dallas area government and "era" events. Parking available underground.

Great architecture. Nice to be earning an income and still improving. A good museum to start your tour of Dallas and to learn some historical facts.
