Many museums and attractions have safely reopened their doors and are happy to welcome you back! Check out a new exhibit or visit one of your favorites for a fun outing in Dallas. Grab your friends, and of course, bring your mask and remember to practice social distancing!

Nasher Sculpture Center
The Arts District oasis reopened in August with enhanced timed-entry ticketing and several exhibitions in place. See Barry X Ball: Remaking Sculpture, a presentation of sculptures created out of rare and delicate stones with the help of 3D scanning technology. The museum also has a variety of programming and events you can find here. The Nasher is open Thursday and Fridays 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Dallas Holocaust and Human Rights Museum
The state-of-the-art museum opened last fall and is dedicated to teaching the story of the Holocaust and advancing human rights to combat prejudice, hatred, and indifference. Enjoy an interactive and thought-provoking experience that is sure to leave you inspired. The museum is open Wednesday-Sunday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Another Round Mini Golf
Book your quaran-tee-time at Another Round, the newest mini golf destination in Dallas. The best part? It's all indoors and there's a bar with golf-themed drinks to sip on while you play. You can also bring the kiddos along for family-friendly fun before after-dark hours (it's 21 and up after 8 p.m.) Tee time starts at 3 p.m. Monday-Thursday; 12 p.m. on Friday; and 10 a.m., on Saturday and Sunday.

Dallas Museum of Art
The DMA's newest immersive exhibit, For a Dreamers of Houses, explores the significance of the spaces we inhabit and how they represent ourselves, values and desires. The museum is open Friday to Sunday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., and you can purchase your timed tickets online here.

AT&T Stadium
Take a tour of one of the largest NFL stadiums in the country and home of the Dallas Cowboys. While fan attendance is likely to be at a lower capacity (or sadly, not an option at all),  a stadium tour is the perfect remedy for all the die-hard fans out there. Check their website for availability and times to book your tour here.
AT&T is a member of VisitDallas. 

African American Museum
Showcasing one of the largest collections of African American Folk Art in the U.S., the African American Museum offers a variety of exhibit halls of artifacts, paintings, and contemporary art. Check their website for updated hours.

The Sixth Floor Museum is now open with new hours, Wednesday to Sunday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Timed tickets must be purchased in advance here.

Perot Museum of Nature and Science
