Dallas, believe it or not, is a hub for artistic activities such as a world-class creative community, innovative fashion, and some of the top restaurants in Texas. It makes sense that Dallas has a strong cultural presence as well. Many of Dallas’ architecturally spectacular attractions are located downtown, making it convenient to see many in a single day. Are you hoping to explore culture in Dallas? Read on for the top museums in Dallas, TX.
Crow Museum of Asian Art
The illustrious Crow family first presented to the world a magnificent collection of Asian art in 1998, which now resides permanently in Dallas’ Arts District. This museum has always been free to enter, which is a humbling gift given how much cultural knowledge it has poured into the city’s artists sector over the years. Check out the museum’s blog for event announcements, since many of the artists whose work is on display here also hold events outside of the venue.
Texas Discovery Gardens
There are several exhibits in the Texas Discovery Gardens. The Shakespeare Garden brings literature to life as you meander among a variety of flora featured in the famed playwright’s writings. In the “Snakes of Texas” section, you’ll see 20 distinct snake species. If writhing snakes are not your thing, travel to the two-story Butterfly House, a tropical setting filled with real butterflies.
The Perot Museum of Nature and Science
This stunning downtown museum, created in the shape of a slate-gray box with a glass-enclosed escalator protruding from its exterior, is an interactive experience for both adults and children. Geek out with exhibitions covering energy, space, sports, and dinosaurs. The museum also has “Thursdays on Tap,” an event featuring live music, food trucks, and liquor.
Frontiers of Flight Museum
For the avid lovers of all things related to flight, pay a visit to the Frontiers of Flight Museum, which is just a short distance from the airport. Nothing else in Dallas compares to this aviation-and-space nerd haven, with 30 distinct types of aircraft and galleries that are dedicated only to rockets.
Dallas Holocaust Museum
The Holocaust and Human Rights Museum in Dallas presents the history of the Holocaust, the postwar human rights struggle, and the evolution of civil rights in America. Exhibits include video testimony from genocide survivors as well as information about other genocides and human rights violations. Without a doubt, this is one of the more depressing museum stops, but it is also one of the city’s most critical museums.
