|About these ratings|
The Dallas Museum of Art houses a collection that spans artistic eras and continents: On gallery walls and behind glass display cases art aficionados will find ancient works from Africa, Asia and the Mediterranean; European art spanning the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries; and contemporary pieces by such artists as Mark Rothko and Roy Lichtenstein. The museum also plays host to various traveling exhibitions, which have in the past included works by Georgia O'Keefe and Vincent Van Gogh.
If you can, recent travelers recommend taking advantage of the various educational programming offered at the museum. For example, the third Friday of each month features a "Late Nights" session that can be anything from a lecture to a film screening to a family game night. And speaking of families, the Dallas Museum of Art also runs a host of kid-friendly activities such as art classes and workshops.
Sitting across the street from the Nasher Sculpture Center in downtown Dallas' Arts District, the Dallas Museum of Art welcomes visitors Tuesday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.; on Thursdays, it stays open until 9 p.m. To get there, take the M-Line Trolley to the intersection of North St. Paul Street and Woodall Rodgers Freeway, or to the corner of North St. Paul Street and Munger Avenue. You don't have to pay to visit the general collection, and some special programming is free as well; however, you will need to pay $8 to tour any temporary exhibits.
