While in Dallas for the weekend to see UFC 211, my boyfriend and I wanted to use our limited time to see some sights and decided to visit this museum. While there were some notable pieces and interesting exhibits of art from around the world, the layout was a bit confusing. Despite that, I would put it one my list... More

Parking at the museum is a flat rate of $12 and easily accessible since it is right under the museum itself. The museum features amazing art for free, as well as, a special exhibit (but that cost money). I found it to be a well put together art museum with friendly staff members. The art museum is in a prime... More

This is the best ever place to quench our thirst for Arts and aesthetic sense. A huge collection of all kinds of arts are on display. The best part is the free general admission. There are enough chairs and cushioned seating to rest. Make sure to spend atleast 3 hours to enjoy.

I go to this museum once a month. It has a great collection of European art; Picasso's paintings, Kandinsky's, Monet's... Right now, they have a special exhibit of Mexican art: Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera, Siqueiros.. The museum is free.

I can't believe that the DMA is free! It was such a fun surprise and my kids loved the art room. I really liked that they have an entire area dedicated to letting people of all ages create art. It is pretty big and can get crowded on the weekends so take your time looking around.

We used to go to the DMA on a regular basis, for their special events and the art. After the last experience, I am not sure we will ever go back. Where has the art gone? I guess they have it in the basement for safekeeping because it is certainly not out for display. To me, HUGE expanses of blank... More

In town for business, we were looking for a park to walk around. Trip advisor suggested Kylde park. After a quick trip around this fun little park we decided to check out the art museum directly across the street. I was surprised there was no admission to get in! Great little gem! I wished I would of found it sooner... More
