“Something fun for everyone”

The Dallas Museum of Art (DMA) is a major art museum located in the Arts District of downtown Dallas, Texas, USA, along Woodall Rodgers Freeway between St. Paul and Harwood. In 1984, the museum moved from its previous location in Fair Park to the Arts District, Dallas, Texas. The Dallas Museum of Art (DMA) was founded in 1903. In 1984 the Museum moved into its current location, the 370,000-square-foot Edward Larrabee Barnes-designed building, as the first arts organization in the newly designated Arts District. Today, the Dallas Museum of Art ranks among the leading art institutions in the country and is distinguished by its innovative exhibitions and groundbreaking educational programs. The Museum’s collection contains over 22,000 works of art spanning 5,000 years of human creativity. The DMA is the only "encyclopedic" (art from all cultures and periods) art museum in North Texas. The Museum is especially known for its arts of the ancient Americas, Africa, Indonesia, and South Asia; European and American painting, sculpture, and decorative arts; and American and international contemporary art.The Museum also differentiates itself with its broad array of activities and programs, designed to engage visitors of all ages and experience levels with its collections. The Museum offers eight to ten special exhibitions each year as well as over 2,000 activities and programs, including the popular Late Night program on the third Friday of the month, when the Museum remains open until midnight, and Thursday Night Live!, featuring live jazz music each Thursday from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. In 2008 the Museum opened the Center for Creative Connections, a groundbreaking interactive space to further engage visitors directly in the creative process and allow them to experience works of art in a more direct way.

The activities along the exhibit help keep the museum really engaging! Great for a group of friends or family to visit during the day, and there's a really neat interactive space. Fascinating how many different forms and cultures of art are here!
