Dallas Museum of Art

Museum in Dallas

This museum is a high-caliber world tour of decorative and fine art. Among the many treasures are Edward Hopper's enigmatic Lighthouse Hill, Frederic Church's lush masterpiece The Icebergs and Rodin's Sculptor and his Muse. Other highlights include exquisite pre-Colombian pottery, carvings and tapestries from Oceania, and a villa modeled on Coco Chanel's Mediterranean mansion (where you can see paintings by statesman Winston Churchill).

Thursday nights feature live jazz in the atrium and cocktails in the DMA Cafe. Kids (and parents) will appreciate the Young Learners Gallery, with fun projects for budding artists.
