Come Inside and Appreciate the Cultural Treasures of Texas.
Looking to enjoy a little culture while living in Texas? Major cities like Dallas, Fort Worth and Houston each offer unique cultural experiences, but Texas museums aren't only found in the big cities. Here's a sample of what you might find on and off the beaten path:

Dallas is home to a world-class symphony, a renowned art museum, a sculpture center and an iconic opera house. Here are some of the top spots to visit:

  • Dallas Museum of Art — Founded in 1903, this city treasure contains over 24,000 works of art spanning 5,000 years of human history.

  • Nasher Sculpture Center — A quiet oasis in an urban setting, the gardens and building contain stunning displays of pre-Columbian art and American modernist works. 

  • Winspear Opera House — In the heart of the Dallas Arts District, the striking red façade of the Dallas Opera’s new theater is a must-see. So are the world-class performances!

  • The Trammell and Margaret Crow Collection of Asian Art — Also part of the Dallas Arts District, this beautiful collection from China, Japan, India and Southeast Asia spans the years from 3500 B.C. to the early 20th century.

Fort Worth, Dallas' sister city to the west, also has its own world-class symphony and a number of fine Texas museums waiting to be explored, and all within a few blocks of each other:

  • The Kimbell Art Museum — Right in the heart of "Cowtown" is a museum that has played host to numerous exhibits every year, from Picasso to Early Christian Art and everything in between. The building itself, in fact, is a must-see work of art.

  • The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth (or "The Modern") — After you visit the Kimbell, pop next door and step into one of the foremost collections of modern and contemporary art in the central United States, all housed in a breathtaking building designed by Japanese architect Tadao Ando.

  • The Amon Carter Museum — Near both the Kimbell and "The Modern," this tribute to American Art draws thousands of visitors each year.

  • The Fort Worth Museum of Science and History — A great place for kids and adults alike to explore the worlds of science through hands-on exhibits, outreach programs and even a "Museum School."

Houston is rich in museums, theater companies, musicians and visual and folk artists. Here are a few spots to visit:

  • The Byzantine Fresco Chapel — Visit the only intact Byzantine frescoes of significance in the west.

  • Houston Museum of Natural Science — This wonder is home to the Burke Baker Planetarium, Wortham IMAX® Theatre, Cockrell Butterfly Center and many fascinating permanent exhibits.

  • Children's Museum of Houston — Explore an array of exhibits that engage kids with many hands-on learning experiences.

  • Contemporary Arts Museum of Houston — As one of a few non-collecting Texas museums, it features visual arts of the present and recent past.

  • The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston (MFAH) — Easy to find because it's right in the heart of Houston’s Museum District, the MFAH has two gallery buildings, a sculpture garden, visitors center, library, café, movie theater, two art schools, two house museums and two gift shops. It houses 63,000-plus works of art from cultures that span the globe, dating from ancient times to today.

Elsewhere in the state, you can experience equally enriching Texas museums like these:

  • The Art Museum of Southeast Texas (AMSET) — Located in Beaumont, hosts exhibitions from all over the U.S. and includes a permanent collection of 1,000 works.

  • The Ellen Noël Art Museum — A Smithsonian Museum affiliate tucked in Odessa, Texas, it provides access to fine art from around the globe via exhibits and its permanent collection.

  • The Art Museum of South Texas — A landmark of architectural beauty on Corpus Christi Bay, this facility hosts engaging exhibits and an extensive permanent collection.
