I found the Old Red Museum and went inside to the visitor centre. Talked to a couple of lovely people inside who gave me some great information about getting around Dallas and what to see.

We have attended two weddings here. The most recent was my niece's in July. The architecture of the building is beautiful, the views at sunset wonderful, and the location prime.

The Old Red Museum was very interesting. I liked the fact that there were videos in each section so you could watch and then go around and see all the interesting artifacts and information on that section of time.
