I'm not a big fan of art museums so I'm not qualified to comment on the quality of the art. It appeared they have an impressive collection and if you are a fan of art a visit would probably be time well spent.

We arrived later in the day and were wishing we had set more time aside for this museum. It is well put together with a widely varied collection of art. Free admission, nicely spaced, comfortable flow.

When we got to the museum the man at the entrance gave us a run down of what to see on what floor which was really nice. The museum has a wide range of art from areas across the globe and it is laid out in an easy to follow design. There was a good variety in types of art... More

This DMA gallery has a very interesting mix of art forms. I been here a couple of times and impressed with the buildings design and the art it houses. There's a very nice outdoor space that's also part of the plan. I've seen grand masters, Rodin, Picasso's and contemporary artists. It's a beautify mix of art, architecture and landscape design...

We didn't have a ton of time, but we enjoyed the art and the interactive creation area. It's a great place for art lovers of all ages.

The DMA is right across the street from Klyde Warren Park, and about 5 blocks north of the Sheraton. Their regular exhibits are impressive, but they also have special exhibits that come through. They also have special events on certain Thursday and Friday evenings during the month, which are free. You may want to check ahead online to see what's... More

This is a very underrated collection. Thanks to donations from local corporations the museum has expanded their collection, the top floor with the ancient pieces is outstanding, and, even better, it's free to the public. I would still visit the Perot museum or Dallas world aquarium ahead of it, but add it to your time in Dallas.

This is a great museum, especially with children. Different rooms with artistic activities according to various age groups. A great sculpture garden as well. While I visited the Jackson Pollock exhibit was ongoing.
