I came to the Meadows Museum for the Dali exhibit, which was outstanding and enlightening, but was also taken with the museum itself and its fabulous collection of Spanish Art. I will be back.

More people should be aware of this excellent museum and their top-notch exhibits. Love to visit on Thursday evening for free, too! Always some wonderful docents around who can add context and background to what you are viewing.

I'd never paid much attention to Spanish art. My mistake. This museum is a jewel. The richly colored walls of the galleries and the insightful descriptions provided complement the works on display. The Dali paintings were a relevation in how the power of art does...More

This is a wonderful two-part exhibit! Exhibit One: Dali: Poetics of the Small Dalí’s propensity for painting on a small scale. Dalí: Poetics of the Small, 1929–1936, is the first exhibition on the artist to focus solely on his small-format works. This exhibits runs through...More

Wonderful small museum with an impressive collection of Spanish art (i.e., the largest outside Spain), and well thought out exhibits that change regularly. The current Dali exhibit is a treat and there is always more to come.

We went for the 'tiny' Dali collection on this, our first visit to the Meadows Museum and were very impressed! The rooms were beautifully laid out making the work the focus. Easy to navigate and enjoyable!

Beautiful small museum on the campus of SMU. All of the major Spanish artists are represented including: Goya, Velasquez, El Greco, Murillo, and Dalí. Bonus- we nearly had the place to ourselves.
