  • The Dallas Art Museum has a small but nice collection of contemporary art. It was fun to tour the galleries and find a familiar artist at every turn, Gilliam, Rothko, Pollock, Rauschenberg. They have ...  more »

  • I came to the night at the museum for the first time, and loved it. There's enough in the museum to keep you busy for a couple of hours, but during this night they offer an additional agenda with live music, movies, guides, dances.... we also had a light dinner at their cafe and some drinks (I was doubtful at first, but ended up enjoying it very much) . I totally recommend the museum, but even if you're not so much into it, you should give it a chance to those nights. I think they make them almost every month.
  • Love this place. Admission is free of charge and there are activities for the whole family. The restaurant is also pretty good for a museum. They host a lot of fun events, including Midnight at the Museum the third Friday of the month. They bring in a wide range of authors, including some very popular ones.
  • I didn't get a lot of time here because I showed up a few hours before closing time. The art was incredible to look at. It wasn't just paintings but also sine very well done furniture. The woodwork was spectacular. Watch out while taking pictures! Make sure you don't back into or bump anything else.
  • Really cool place right by a great park. Free admission. Premium exhibits on rotation. Great Asian art.
  • I am 17 and went with a bunch of my friends for 3 hours one day this summer and had a fantastic time! There were plenty things to look at and read and we could talk and catch up at the same time. The interactive section was also really cool for us even though we are older we still had a great time creating stuff. The only issue is that we went because we are broke teenagers and that is why we choose to do a free activity and the snack bar was SUPER expensive. So my suggestion is eat before you go or plan on going across the street to the food park.
