|About these ratings|
Home to one of the more broad reaching collections in all of North Texas, the Dallas Museum of Art can be quite the visit for art fiends. Ancient art from Africa, Asia and the Mediterranean are gallery mainstays. Contemporary additions from artists like Sigmar Polke and Anselm Kiefer give visitors a well-rounded experience.
The Dallas Museum of Art also has a wealth of workshops for kids and special events for adults, but recent travelers highly recommend taking advantage of the free evening programs. Says one Yelp.com reviewer: "I usually go every Thursday when Jazz Under the Stars is going on (FREE)! Great atmosphere." Every third Friday of the month, the museum hosts its Late Nights program, a free evening of concerts, readings, film screenings and tours running until midnight.
Located in the heart of the Dallas Art District, the DMA's general admission costs about $10 for adults. Closed on Mondays, the museum is generally open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. with extended hours on Thursdays. But be sure to check out the museum's website for more details before you go.
