Dallas Museum of Art

Do you know where you can see paintings by Monet, Renoir, Rodin, Cezanne, Manet, Pissaro and many many others for free? The Dallas Museum of Art has a few specials that would make any mom on a budget happy. We all know the importance of teaching our children about art and history. Kids tend to learn better when they go experience these things for themselves. The Dallas Museum of Art is an invaluable asset to our community for the education of our children and you don't have to wait for them to have a school field trip to go.
Every Thursday night from 5:00pm - 9:00pm is FREE. During the month of July admission is FREE on Wednesdays (call to make sure this is still going on before you go). The museum also has a program targeted at younger children on the first Tuesday of every month. July 7, August 4, and September 1 from 11:00am - 2:00pm the museum has different kid oriented events with free admission for children and their adult companion.
Normal admission to the museum costs $10 per adult, $7 for senior citizens (over 65), students and military personnel with valid i.d.'s $5, children under 12 get in free. You can also buy tickets that get you into the Nasher Sculpture Center and the DMA which will cost you $16 per adult(save $4), $12 for senior citizens (save $2), $8 for students (save $2), and children under 12 get in free.
The Nasher also has free admission May through July on Thursday nights from 5:00pm-10:00pm.
