  • This Museum is wonderful and has a large and impressive collection of artwork from all over the world. The main collections are free to the public, and special exhibits are fairly priced. I also love that they have a children's area and often pair with community partners to offer programs for children, such as sensory friendly days. I was fortunate enough to volunteer for one of these events and it was such a blast. I would recommend this museum to anyone.
  • Wonderful place for the whole family. Staff is wonderful and very informative. I had one gentleman tell me all about this really awesome cat painting and fish painting. Super friendly and informative. Great staff and great art. All of the people at the front desks were even nice when giving me directions, I get lost pretty easy in big buildings and they were all more than happy to help. Always a blast when I come to the DMA.
  • This museum is absolutely incredible. A place where I can walk in for free and see Picasso and Pollock is a great place indeed. There is so much variety from different art movements and the lighting in this building is amazing. I loved every minute of being in here. I would highly recommend adding this to your itinerary when visiting Dallas!
  • I love the dallas museum of art! Best parking is on the south side where you can pay at the parking meter or across the street on the west side where you might be able to park for free. Unless you want to par $15-20 to park underneath. Love the exhibits and they have a great mosaic out front that is great!
  • Absolutely stunning displays of cultural art with ample historical context, all in order! Plus, it's free!!! It was one of the best art museums that I have ever visited. I'm taken aback that a free museum would posses such a large and diverse collection. Carve out at least 2 hours for this experience. Oh and the gentleman with the dred locks, guarding the African exhibit is quite knowledgeable on the artifacts! He is also a pleasure to converse with.
