Beautiful small museum on the campus of SMU. All of the major Spanish artists are represented including: Goya, Velasquez, El Greco, Murillo, and Dalí. Bonus- we nearly had the place to ourselves.

Nice museum but very small. It had several rooms closed so I don't know if they usually have more art or not. I would go if you are interested in a special collection that is there or you don't have a lot of time.
