Traveler experts refer to this collection of Spanish art one of Dallas’s best-kept secrets, and they have good reason. Meadows Museum of Art is home to one of the premier collections of Spanish art outside of Spain. The collection grew out of oil magnate Algur Meadow’s personal collection of Spanish art dating between 15th and 20th centuries. Today prized possessions include works by Velázquez, Goya, Ribera, Murillo, and Zurbarán.

Located on the Southern Methodist University campus, Meadows Museum is a resource for both the university and a broad, international audience. The museum engages with its extensive community through exhibitions, publications, workshops and educational programs. A spot for unique souvenirs, the museum gift shop sells memorabilia as well as books on Spanish art and culture, jewelry, decorations and more.

Check the website before you go for offers like free admission Thursdays and free lecture series.
