Updated: Mar 3


The holidays are upon us in the DFW area. We want to wish everyone safe and happy holiday plans. If you have people coming to visit or you are looking for something to do in the metroplex, check out these local architectural highlights!

In Fort Worth:

The Kimbell Art Museum

This amazing building was design by architect, Louis Kahn, and is a local gem. Wandering around inside or outside, this is a great place to spend a few peaceful hours. Come explore the Kimbell collection with free admission. https://kimbellart.org/


Water Gardens

Located right next to the Fort Worth Convention Center, the Water Gardens are an architectural surprise in the downtown area. This is a great spot to walk by and down into as you explore the city. https://www.fortworth.com/listings/fort-worth-water-gardens/2989/


Sundance Square

If you get hungry or looking for some entertainment while exploring downtown Fort Worth, you can come check out Sundance Square. There is plenty of food, drinks, shopping, and music to fill your day and keep you going into the night! https://sundancesquare.com/




The Modern Art Museum

We are lucky to have another great building in Fort Worth. The Modern Art Museum is a striking steel and glass building designed by Tadao Ando. There is free admission on Fridays! Come check it out. https://www.themodern.org/



In Dallas:

The Nasher Sculpture Center

If you have some time to kill in Dallas, go see the sculptures at the Nasher. They have quite a few different featured artists and exhibits to explore. The Nasher hosts a lot of activities, events, and lessons, so plenty of ideas for a day out and about. https://www.nashersculpturecenter.org/


The Perot Museum of Nature and Science

A visit to the Perot Museum is an adventure for all ages. With 12 permanent exhibits, films, and events for kids and adults, there is always something exciting to come see here.

Klyde Warren Park

With your time off from work or school, sometime you just want to enjoy being outside. Kylde Warren Park is a great place to do so! This amazing urban park is in the heart of Dallas, and sits directly over Woodall Rodgers Freeway. Hang out in the sun in this cool creative green space. https://www.klydewarrenpark.org/




Wyly Theatre

Come see a show at the Dee and Charles Wyly Theatre. This architectural marvel does a lot with sound and light. Enjoy a night at the theatre! https://www.dallasartsdistrict.org/performing-arts/wyly-theatre/
