The Dallas Arts District is the largest arts district in the nation, spanning 68 acres and 19 contiguous blocks. The district is comprised of museums, performance halls, corporate offices, residences, restaurants, churches and even a school.
The Arts District has been a thirty-year plan in the making and now boasts buildings by four Pritzker Prize-winning architects within a span of several blocks. The district’s architectural richness extends however, with examples of significant buildings erected as far back as the late 1880’s, just 40 years after Dallas’ founding. We will explore the history of the buildings and the culture of one of Dallas’ most interesting neighborhoods.
Our 90-minute architecture walking tour is led by a trained tour guide and will examine buildings from the 1890’s to the present day. You will explore the architectural detail of the district as well as the institutions, individuals and visionaries who are a part of this fascinating story.
Tours are held on the first and third Saturdays of each month, beginning at 10:00 a.m. at the ceremonial entrance to the free Dallas Museum of Art (Flora and Harwood). The tour is held rain or shine. Click reservations to reserve your spot.
