  • Lots to see and do...not far from the Book Depository. This is in a very pretty area with other things to do too! 
  • This is one of the most beautiful buildings I have had the pleasure of seeing. The details are amazing on the outside so make sure you really look at it. The inside is filled with interesting history ...  read more »
  • Nice facility. Located right down from the Texas Book Depository; across from Deally plaza. We did not have a lot of time. Seemed to have lots of Dallas history. 
  • One of the most architecturally attractive buildings in the city. I learned a lot about Dallas history in this well-curated museum. The exhibits -- four of them, each corresponding to a particular time period in Dallas's past -- featured interesting short films, detailed displays, and plenty of historical artifacts. For reduced parking fare, park in the garage below the museum and ask the front desk for a parking pass to give the parking guard on your way out. Another suggestion is to call ahead and ask whether a school group will be visiting. When we arrived, raucous noises from a large group of school children greeted our ears, so we left to grab lunch. When we returned awhile later (after the kids had gone), the museum was very quiet. Recommended!
  • Such a great building and a wonderful place to learn a little history of Dallas. Have to check out the museum, has some great stuff there. There is also a visitors center located inside.
  • There is so much to learn about Dallas. There is a dark past that doesn't get talked about, but the museums exhibits do a great job framing the history of this storied city.
  • Very nice, well organized storehouse of Dallas County history. Perfect for children with lots of activities and interactive exhibits.
  • This is a absolute jewel to go into. This takes you all through the city's history and culture that makes the city up. It was absolutely neat to go back into time and see the culture that was on display. Would highly recommend this if your looking for something to do.
