Top FIVE Museums in Dallas Fort Worth
We often get asked all kinds of questions about the usual things a Texas REALTOR® gets asked...is it the right time to buy a house in Dallas? Or, should we sell our Frisco home and move to Highland Park. You know the usual real estate questions. That being said, today is not about that at all! We wanted to share with you the Top FIVE museums our clients voted for in North Texas!
#5 Nasher Sculpture Center
Last on our list but definitely not for any specific reason! The Nasher Sculpture Center is a museum and shady park all combined into one oasis right in the art district of Dallas! The outdoor exhibits rival museums around the world and is a must see for anyone new in town...or, bring visiting family there to impress them with our North Texas culture. We promise they will be impressed!
#4 The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealy Plaza
According to Wikipedia The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza is a museum located on the sixth floor of the Dallas County Administration Building in downtown Dallas, Texas, overlooking Dealey Plaza at the intersection of Elm and Houston Streets. Dallas residents this is the place that will ever be remembered as a somber reality to our history. The Sixth Floor Museum is the old book depository, where the shot that killed JFK was fired. Dealy Plaza is the location that JFK was driving through when he was fatally shot.
#3 Perot Museum of Nature and Science
Number 3 on our list is the place where you take the family for a true hands on experience! The Dallas Perot Museum brings the mysteries of science and wonder together for an experience the whole family will enjoy. If racing a cheetah, visiting prehistoric artifacts or the science behind our local tornados is something that interest your group then book a trip to the Perot Museum! Bring the whole family, it's never too late to learn!
#2 Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth
Located in the heart of the Fort Worth Cultural District The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth is a leader in interpretive, collecting, showcasing art from the 1940s to the present.
