Crow Museum of Asian Art | Directions

Start at the Crow Museum of Asian Art for a quiet reflection in a serene atmosphere, marveling at centuries-old artifacts or gazing at unique works of art. Located in the center of the Dallas Arts District, the museum features permanent and rotating exhibitions of arts from China, Japan, India and Southeast Asia. Look out for the wellness classes, yoga and meditation, lectures and gallery talks, frequent events and docent-led tours. The gem of the museum is the breathtaking sculpture garden, home to 15 contemporary and historical pieces peppered throughout an intricate garden of bamboo, maples, azaleas and pine trees.
