    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.

    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!

    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.

    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?

    Thursday nights are real good cuz of the live jazz they host. U must see the paintings of “Iceberg” by Fredrick Church, and the “Peaceable Kingdom” by Edward Hicks!!

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

    You need at least 3 hours to enjoy it... But you could spend an entire day here. Much bigger than we had anticipated.
