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.

Glad you enjoyed Dalí, we hope you'll be back again in the spring for a show on Mariano Fortuny!

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.

Nice museum but very small. It had several rooms closed so I don't know if they usually have more art or not. I would go if you are interested in a special collection that is there or you don't have a lot of time.
