  • Our primary reason to visit was the temporary Van Gogh exhibit (which was awesome). That said, the museum’s standing exhibits were also amazing. We could have spent multiple days fully exploring...

  • I loved this space! Super beautiful. 4 floors of exhibits. It is free for the family, unless you want to check out on of the specialized exhibits for a low cost. Detra was fantastic, I had a lovely conversation with her. She made my experience there even more lovely. Fantastic collection of rotating pieces. There is also an incredible park space out front with tons of food trucks & vibrant people to grab a quick lunch on the lawn! Would recommend a few hours here at least!!!!
  • I loved going to the Dallas Museum of Art. I can not believe so many time I was in Dallas and I finally made it couple of weeks ago. I had high hopes for it and mfa didn't disappoint. The sculpture of outside of the museum building is so original, made the building very contemporary and exciting. Their collection is huge!!! I was so excited about the Chinese and Japanese hall. There are some interesting piece I had never seen anywhere else. The display of the entire museum is so artistic, the color of each collection room is unique and trendy. The flow of each section is so smooth and soothing, just makes me want to stay longer lose myself in these art works. They also have a section outdoors displaying sculptures, we spent about 3.5 hours in there and barely finished it. I definitely going back there to study them more and in details. Most important the entry fee is FREE!!! Dallas museum of art really have a way to spreading art! Bravo. Highly recommended will have to go back again.
