  • Fabulous collection of Spanish paintings and a treat to anyone who loves art. The staff were so nice, polite and helpful. Definitely a place to be visited whilst in Dallas. I spent a couple of hours and it was an unforgettable experience.
  • Yes, I indeed went to this fine museum with a woman named Tammy Mangum in 1995. I had driven from Ruston to Shreveport to meet her for this our first date. Now, the museum has/had a very large beautiful painting of Jesus looking up into the heavens, surrounded by a few children. Jesus appeared to be feeling a great deal of pain and hope. Amen.
  • Meadows Museum boasts an extensive collection of Spanish art spanning centuries of master works. The museum is smaller than expected and consequently very manageable. Free to students, it is a great resource for the community.
  • The focus of this museum is on art from Spain. Visitors are treated to works of art throughout the history of Spain, from the Middle Ages to the present. The museum isn't enormous, but the works of art which are present are some of the finest that the world possesses. There are two primary galleries and both of these are on the second floor. In each of these galleries, there is a mixture of works of art throughout Spanish history. This is a bit odd; I would think one gallery should focus on older art while the other focus on contemporary art. So to me, the chronology doesn't make sense. But having said that, the overall experience is transcendent. HIGHLY recommended.
  • Some beautiful art pieces here. Not the biggest selection in the world but definitely worth admission. If you're in town, this is a must visit.

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.
