Spent a few hours here while on a campus visit. Needed to kill some time before our flight home. Easy to spend as much or as little time as you like here. Free exhibits were perfect for our time allowance but lots of people were waiting for the special exhibit too. Across the street is a cute park with a... More

Although I haven't had the luxury of being able to explore the museum with plenty of time, each visit I've discovered something new and interesting here. This time it was that they now have an art restoration department where you can watch the restorers at work. An upstairs meeting/reception room has real Frank Lloyd Wright windows that are truly works... More

The DMA is keeping up a regular flow of special exhibits and fun events (often free) that make it a wothwhile stop while in the Arts District. The permanent collection has several noteworthy pieces, and the whole museum is easy to absorb in an hour. Jazz in the atrium and other musical events create a nice relaxing and welcoming social...

The Dallas Museum of Art might not be as well-known or world class as the Kimball over in Fort Worth, but it is definitely worth visiting for the highlights of the collection. A friend and I were there initially for the special exhibit on 20th Century Mexican Art (Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo, etc.), which was very good, but I was... More

The DMA is a fabulous museum. The art exhibits they bring in are well curated, the lectures are fascinating, the music is worldly, and the café has good food.

While overnighting in Dallas after delayed flights and missed connections (thanks for nothing for the appalling service yet again American Airlines), I decided to spend some time at the Dallas Museum of Art. The collection, though small in comparison to that of some others art museums, is superb. An apparent focus on earlier works by leading artists, including JMW Turner,... More

Being a member I'm biased. But its a great place to visit for all the family. And watch out for the special events. We get a view of things you would only expect to see in as big a city as New York.

I visited the Mexico exhibition at this lovely museum. Not only the building is attractive, the permanent collection is also a must.
