    This is a fantastic museum and seems to be a hidden gem. Free and one of those places that is laid out so that there are treasures round every corner. Start at the top floor and work your way down.

    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)!

    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?
  • Kurt von Schleicher w.
    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.
