By and large, the cultural center of Dallas lies in the Dallas Arts District. This section of the city is filled with attractions that will appeal to budding artists, collectors, families and those who are looking to explore their new interest in art. At Magnolia Hotels, we recommend the following things to do and see at the Dallas Arts District:
Explore the Crow Collection of Asian Arts
Throughout the country, there are only a few museums that are entirely dedicated to works of art from Asian countries, such as Japan, China, and India. This is a peaceful and calm spot in an otherwise busy city, and visitors will find that they have a chance to see rare works and authentic pieces from these cultures.
Visit the Perot Museum of Nature and Science
The Perot Museum of Nature and Science is perhaps the most family-friendly attraction in the Dallas Arts District. There are many exhibits within the museum that are interactive and engaging for children, but they aren’t only appealing to the youngest visitors. Those who simply love to learn new things will enjoy spending hours exploring the 11 permanent exhibits at this museum. This is also one of the best places in the city to catch a glimpse of the gorgeous Dallas skyline.
Relax at the Klyde Warren Park
In between visits to the various museums, you will find that Klyde Warren Park is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the gorgeous outdoor weather. This park is a green space located in the heart of the Dallas Arts District, and it features a dog park and a children’s area. You can often find food trucks parked here, making it an easy spot to get a delicious lunch.
Dine at One Arts Plaza
At the end of your day in the Dallas Arts District, head to One Arts Plaza where you will find several award-winning restaurants to choose from. Regardless of which restaurant you choose, you will be able to enjoy the gorgeous basalt log fountain that anchors this destination.
