The neighborhood has a variety of cozy cafés for savoring your immersive artistic day. Round out your itinerary with a tour that includes the Arts District in addition to other Dallas hot spots.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • Most of the art venues have gift shops—consider taking home a one-of-a-kind souvenir.
  • Turn your day at the Arts District into an interactive adventure by booking a Scavenger Hunt or Outdoor Trivia Race.

How to Get There
The Dallas Arts District is bordered by US 75 to the east and St. Paul to the west, Woodall Rodgers Access Road to the north and Ross to the south. The closest DART is Pearl/Arts District. The free McKinney Avenue Trolley (also known as the M-Line) stops at the district.

When to Get There
There are no set hours for the Dallas Arts District. Check each venue for hours and days of operation, as well as upcoming special events or closures. Generally, museums will be busier on weekends and school breaks. The Dallas Arts District Block Party is a signature event series that runs at various times throughout the year and is worth checking out.

America’s Finest Opera House
The Winspear Opera House has been called “America’s finest opera house” by Opera magazine, in part because of its unique 21st-century design, which is a takeoff on the traditional opera house “horseshoe” shape. The building’s facade is 60 feet (18 meters) of glass revealing a vibrant red interior. The venue hosts opera, musical theater, ballet, and other performances.
