Dallas Museum of Art

I found myself planing a last minute trip to Dallas for a belated birthday celebration.  One thing about me is that I’m a planner.  I like to have an idea of what I will be doing when I’m traveling somewhere.  While I’ve been to Dallas many times, I usually don’t spend a lot of time out exploring the area….usually I’m just there to see someone or do something (like the SGK 3 Day walk).  This particular weekend was chilly in Dallas, which I was definitely not expecting!  There are many things to do and see in Dallas but most involve being outdoors.  So we found ourselves looking for something to do on a windy and dreary Saturday.  I saw in my search of ideas that Dallas has quite a large art scene.  So we opted to check out the Dallas Museum of Art (DMA for short).  The DMA is one of the largest art museums in North America.  And to our surprise, it also boasts free admission so nothing to lose other than time to go and check it out!  While I will admit I’m no art buff, I thoroughly enjoyed myself at the museum.  There are 9 unique collections and the building itself is large and airy so you don’t feel overwhelmed even with all of the other visitors.  If you ever find yourself in Dallas on a bad weather day (or you just want to expand your culture), I definitely recommend the DMA!  It’s a gem!
