Imagine Your Gallery Here

This Week at the Dallas Museum of Art

Holidays are a great time to visit museums and galleries. Always keep in mind that most museums and galleries will close early or completely the day before a holiday and closed completely for the actual holiday. Check the venue’s website prior to venturing out for an art rendezvous.

Below is a two week schedule for the Dallas Museum of Art (DMA). The DMA has a lot to see right now and we highly recommend a visit.

If possible, we suggest taking DART Rail. A $2 rail only pass sure beats driving in holiday traffic. Get off at St. Paul Station and walk north on Harwood to the Dallas Arts District.
