    The Museum houses the works of artists from every continent - many of which tell stories from thousands of years ago. Public admission to the Museum is complimentary to all.

    Free jazz Thursdays from 6-8pm. Go early to grab a seat. Museum also has free general admission to most exhibits. This is one of my fav spots in Dallas. Great place to take pics.

    Take your time and keep track of what you've seen as it's easy to get turned around. Very clean and staff is friendly and helpful. Very nice free museum.

    Nice permanent collection but the temporary exhibitions are the best and always surprising: Pop Art, Pollock, Irving Penn, I'd recommend'em all!

    Free admission, get to make points easily when you're a DMA member to get free parking on your next visit. Good for a date.

    The real highlight was the Emery and Wendy Reves collection, incorporating elements from Coco Chanel (for the fashionistas) and Sir Winston Churchill (for the conservative political buffs)!

    This is such a great way to spend your afternoon! If you need a break from walking check out the movie theater in the kids arts and craft section!

    The general admission displays are worth it, let alone the special exhibits. I'm particularly a fan of the paintings.

    I liked the place, but hall monitors follow folks around like gestapo. The exhibits are not Vatican or Louvre quality or age, and 95% of exhibit can be photographed. So, what's the big deal @ photos?
