    Loved American Art and old exhibits from around the globe. Some special exhibits are available for a fee if you want to go through.  more »

    Unfortunately, my wife and I only had a couple of hours on a Thursday evening to see the museum. (The museum is open until 9 pm on Thursdays.) So, we did not get to see as much as we wanted to. The mu...  more »

    I'd recently had the opportunity to visit the Louvre and Orsay in Paris, and I didn't expect to be very impressed with this Museum. But within a short time period, I changed my mind. The bottom floor ...  more »

    This is a gorgeous art museum! It is very clean and organized. They have 4 floors with very different styles of art. The art is explained and displayed extremely well.The gift shop has items .25 and up. The Cafe has very good food,I bought a cup of chicken and vegetable soup and it was one of the best soups I have ever tasted. Overall this is one of the best Art museums I have been too and I will definitely be coming again.

    This museum is a wonderful experience. First of all, it's free and that's awesome! There's a cafe on the inside and the outside. The one outside is okay. We ate at that one. The only annoying thing is that there are areas that are restricted because it's for members only. I love the variety and diversity of collections they have. I also like the layout of the museum. It's not overwhelming and you can't get lost once you understand the layout.

    It's great that it's free. The museum is large and has lots of exhibits but it lacks collections. The ancient art sections did not really have a lot of pieces. Many areas were empty and it was quick to see. Hopefully they will be able to add to the collections in the future.

    What a wonderful visit! We went for the Mexico exhibit, and were blown away. Not only was that exhibit wonderfully curated, but the other feature exhibits and permanent exhibits were amazing. The helpers within the exhibits were great and had extra tidbits to add. The entire arts district was wonderful. If they say there is a long wait, believe it and buy your tickets ahead of time. But even without tickets the free areas of the museum were great.

    loved the art. very clean appearance inside and out. decent categorization of pieces. especially in the exhibit. staff are extremely rude and standoffish in basically all situations. location is good, food trucks nearby are good, parking isn't horrible because there are elevators everywhere. the staff are just overbearing and awful, and that just ruined it for me. also, could probably use a little more seating.

Where to stay in Dallas

Though the downtown area offers more high-end accommodations, the heaviest concentration of hotels in Dallas is in the northern part of the city. Staying in this area while on holiday allows you to choose from a range of affordable and comfortable lodgings just a short drive from the city's major attractions. Depending on the purpose of your visit, you may find it more convenient to stay close to the airport or near the city's amusement parks. A budget-friendly alternative, the northern suburbs offer decent accommodations and plenty of shops and restaurants.
