dallasmuseumofart.org
Dallas’s premiere art museum and one of the epicenters of classic and modern art in the country, Dallas Museum of Art’s collection is made up of more than 24,000 objects—dating from the third millennium BC to the present day—so there’s always something new to explore on a rainy day.

Dallas Contemporary

Forging the avant-garde frontiers of modern art, Dallas Contemporary is a non-collecting, not-for-profit museum that cycles through experimental exhibitions from local, national and international artists.

Kimbell Art Museum
3333 Camp Bowie Boulevard
kimbellart.org
Finished in 1972, this unique, light-swept building was designed by Louis I. Kahn and is considered one of the most important architectural works of the last few decades. The museum houses a small but selective collection and also features traveling exhibitions.

Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth
3200 Darnell Street

“The Modern,” as it is often referred to, houses one of the most expansive collections of post WWII art in the central United States. With pieces in its permanent collection from the likes of Pablo Picasso, Susan Rothenberg, Andy Warhol, Jackson Pollock and Gerhard Richter, it’s easy to see why this museum is considered a local gem.
