Dallas Museum of Art
The cornerstone feature of the Arts District, this museum holds a renowned collection of treasures and timeless exhibits. Permanent collections include Ten Treasures, highlighting the key areas of the museum's interests and the Wendy & Emery Reves Collection, a personal gathering of quality pieces from their mansion. A multitude of temporary exhibits travel into and out of various galleries, such as the Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs. Previous exhibits have included Degas to Picasso: Painters, Sculptors and the Camera, Watch the Skies! The Art of David Weisner and Art in Post-Revolutionary Mexico. A restaurant and cafe are located in the museum to quench your appetite. Extensive selections of books, posters and designer items are available for purchase in the Museum Store.
The Dallas Museum of Art if one of the best museums I have ever been to. The Museum has a wide variety of art from Historic treasures to Modern paintings. The Museum covers African Art, American Painting & Sculpture, Ancient American Art, Ancient Mediterranean Art, Asian Art, Contemporary Art, Decorative Arts and Design, European Painting & Sculpture, Pacific Islands Art. Every Thursday night free admission from 5pm – 9pm., and live Jazz music. Also the DMA is right next door to the
Nasher Sculpture Center, and Trammell & Margaret Crow Collection of Asian Art Center.
This art museum displays several different exhibits frequently, meaning you're guaranteed a new experience every time you come in. Most exhibits are free, and you only have to pay for parking, making this attraction very affordable.
Took our son their this summer, although the life size statue, art outside were marvalous,
the price was not worth it. Too hot in the summer. Parking was not great, but would be great for a day in downtown, with drinks to follow.
Everyone who visits or lives in Dallas should visit the DMA at least once. It has quite a collection and you can spend the greater part of the day wandering the halls.
There is an admission fee (it used to be free) but it's still worth it. The only negative thing I could say about this museum is what I call the DMA goons. Yes, the people in white shirts and dark jackets leering at you while you are trying to enjoy the art.
They aren't very helpful or knowledgeable and I would assume their purpose is to make sure you don't touch the paintings. But they can kill a great afternoon at the museum with their uneducated, annoyed stares.
A trip to the museum is still worth it, you get to view the masters as well as some very amusing, modern, temporary exibits.
The Dallas Museum of Art is one of those select "comprehensive museums," meaning they have "something from everything" - nearly all eras and styles of world art are represented, and with pieces strong in quality and historical significance. The galleries mix painting, sculpture, and decorative arts - one comprehends the total aesthetic milieu of each period represented. Particular strengths include United States, and indigenous Western Hemisphere, but there truly is something for all interests and tastes. Plan to be there from the moment they open until closing - trying to see everything can be exhausting, but is not impossible.
Whether going for a special exhibit or the regular venue it's a great place to be. I have certain paintings that I love to visit often. As an artist the museum keeps me in touch with what is important in the world of art. Also there is no place like it to do studies of others work.
Very cool and interesting. It would be a fun place to take a group of people, but also a nice place for a small group. I took some out of town relatives and they loved the local art section. Closes early so start in the morning.
My son and I went to the museum. There were a lot of nice multicultural pieces and exhibits upstairs. You can also go to the Nasher sculptural museum across the street. The staff is helpful and the food was good. They are hosting the King Tut exhibit beginning in October. It was pretty cool inside, so wear layers!!!
