  • I love to come with all ages to this museum. Their tour guides are knowledgeable and friendly. There is something here for all ages of art lovers. 
  • 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. 
  • What I love about this museum is that there's so much to see. It is definitely a world class museum! They do a terrific job at breaking it up into sections. If you like a specific type of style, artis...  read more »
  • 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.
  • Awesome. Museum! World class location. And best place to see the histories of the world. Amazing collection of Asian, African and others from all around the world make this one of the best place to visit in Dallas!
  • 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.
  • Not sure how you can give this place anything less than 5 stars. First off its FREE. It is also huge and has all kinds of different interpretations of art. Some of it I wouldnt say is art, but more of a mess someone made. I dont really understand how some things get called art, but it was interesting to look at none the less. Some of the paintings and sculptures are very impressive. There are some very old and very expensive pieces in this Museum. I would absolutely come here again to look at some of the paintings etc. There is a lot to look at and it is right downtown. Not a whole lot to be upset about with this place. I would highly recommend it, especially if you are looking to pass some time without spending a penny.
  • A FREE museum! Loved the place - currently has an amazing Irving Penn exhibition. Head out to the Crow Collection of Asian Arts, the Klyde Warren Gardens or just walk about. Great place for the family as well. What's there not to love!
