  • Great museum located in downtown Dallas. Economically convenient because you can look at art work for free. They sometimes have special events or artwork that you actually have to pay to look at but its not too much. They have a cafe outside and inside with lots of tables and seats to use. A creative workshop for kids (also free) is offered within the museum so that kids can also have fun at the museum. Great tourist location if your looking for something to do during your time in downtown.
  • Great museum overall, and FREE! The Keir Collection of Islamic Art was very interesting. The placard notes were very well written; compliments to the author. They were interesting, easy to read, and great use of the Oxford comma. The Ancient American Art exhibit was nice, but the maps were not shaded to show the applicable region. The curators should check out the Bush Presidential library for how they display their maps. Overall a fun and enjoyable experience.
