The curators of this museum do a very good job of rotating the exhibits. It's well done and offers enough of the big name artists to make it worth your wile. Even if some of the older docents ladies at the entrances are a bit crabby :)

Lots of walking and lots of things to see, can't believe this was a free museum. Very enjoyable afternoon on a very hot day.

DMA is an excellent museum. Admission is free! It will take a good three to four hours to see the all of the art. DMA does charge for parking, but it is reasonable. One of the best Dallas attractions.

We always eat breakfast here before we go on our tours. Surprisingly the food is good. But of course the exhibits are always great I have been coming here for 15 years and I never get tired of it.

If you like a specific type of style, artist, period of time, etc. you can find it here! As with everything in downtown Dallas, you have to work to... More

Amazing experience to see my fave artists in one gallery! I love the variety of stuff they have there. It's also very easy to navigate around as they split the sections by continent..

Very much enjoyed the collection. Museum was not crowded, and was very clean. It is located in the Arts District and within walking distance to Klyde Warren Park, the Sculpture Garden and other arts venues.
