We are excited to welcome you to the DMA!
Please find information to plan your visit to the Museum below and read our Notice to Visitors About COVID-19 and FAQ page for details on how we continue to ensure a safe and comfortable experience for all.
Tuesday–Sunday: 11:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m.
Closed Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year's Eve, and New Year's Day
Free general admission entry to the DMA requires a ticket secured for entry. Visitors are encouraged to reserve tickets online in advance. Walk-ups are welcomed and will be accomodated, but please note that you will be directed to the Guest Services desk at our Ross and Hamon entrances if you do not have a ticket.
General admission includes viewing the Museum's collection galleries and most exhibitions.
If you would like to visit any special exhibitions requiring a paid ticket for admission, you must reserve a separate ticket once you have secured your free general admission ticket for the same date. A special exhibition ticket alone will not permit entry to the DMA.
DMA Members can reserve free tickets online.
- Children 11 and under are free but still require a ticket.
In accordance with CDC recommendations that include Dallas County, we are recommending that all Museum visitors and staff wear masks or face coverings while inside the Museum. If you do not have a mask or face covering, and would like one, the Museum will provide you with one upon arrival. In addition, Dallas County’s threat level was recently moved to orange, or “extreme caution,” and officials advise everyone to take extra precautions, such as wearing a face mask indoors and socially distancing.
Visitors must have a general admission ticket for entry.
Photography without a flash is allowed in the galleries unless otherwise indicated. To protect the artwork, tripods, monopods, and selfie sticks are not allowed.
Smoking and vaping are not permitted anywhere in the DMA, including outdoor Museum spaces, the DMA parking garage, and in front of the entrances.
Outside food and drink are not permitted in the DMA galleries, in the DMA Cafe, or at Socca. Visitors may bring picnics to eat on the lawn of Eagle Family Plaza, in the Sculpture Garden, and in Fleischner Courtyard. Please be considerate of those around you, and keep personal belongings, feet, and legs off seating. Outside alcohol and glass containers are prohibited.
Sketchbooks and pencils (no other art supplies) are permitted in the galleries.
For safety and health reasons, visitors should wear attire appropriate to a public facility, including shoes and shirts.
Please do not touch any work of art, including outdoor sculptures. When visiting the galleries with small children, please maintain supervision.
Fragile objects are often placed behind Plexiglas or ropes. Please refrain from touching the Plexiglas casing. If you see tape on the floor near a work of art, the tape indicates how far away you should stand from the object. A good general rule is to stand at least three feet away from a work of art.
For outside spaces:
Pets on a leash are allowed on Ross Avenue Plaza and Eagle Family Plaza. Please clean up after your pet.
Sports equipment, including soccer balls, footballs, and Frisbees, are not permitted on Eagle Family Plaza or in the Museum's outdoor gallery spaces. The use of bicycles, skateboards, and rollerblades is prohibited except on perimeter sidewalks.
Please keep the Eagle Family Plaza clean. Place all recyclables and waste in the appropriate receptacles.
We appreciate your help in protecting the art for future generations to enjoy.
As a public museum, we reserve the right to use photography of any individual in our education or promotional materials displayed in print or on the internet.
