Late Nights at Dallas Museum of Art

July 9th, 2015 by admin

Dallas is rich with history and culture, and no place captures the essence of the city quite as well as the Dallas Museum of Art does. You can join hundreds of visitors from all walks of life and artistic backgrounds, but who all have one thing in common—a love for the arts. The Museum opens up to the public and provides visitors with a variety of activities to suit all interests. The Museum hosts public readings, family events, museum tours, local performances, and film screenings for all. Stay up late and spend the evening at the DMA. Cost to Get in The events, including late nights, are free to the public. General Admission is free every day, and it permits visitors to see the galleries and select exhibitions. Some special exhibitions do require the cost of a general admission ticket, which is $16. Tickets can be purchased online, but again, it is only for special exhibitions. When are Late Nights? The Museum hosts Late Nights on the third Friday of every month. The events begin at 6:00 pm and last until midnight. The next event is on July 17th. Come out and check out the busy night.
