  • This place will love. It has unique paintings from the colonial era. Also, has relics of the Spanish who arrived in this region.

  • 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.
  • Fantastic art museum on SMU's campus. They have a wonderful collection of Spanish artists and even a few Picasso sketches when we were there.
  • This is a very nice museum in Dallas within walking distance from the George W Bush Presidential Library. It hosts the largest collection of Spanish art outside of Spain. Really nice and peaceful museum covering 2000 years of Spanish art. I really recommend it.
  • Gorgeous collection of Spanish art! I really enjoyed this gem of a museum.
  • The very best museum in the US for Spanish art. It is big enough to have many spectacular pieces, but small enough to not feel overwhelmed. The staff is knowledge and incredibly helpful. Their special exhibits are some of the best in the US.
