About the Tour

The Arts District has been a thirty year plan in the making and now boasts buildings by four Pritzker Prize-winning architects within a span of several blocks. The district’s architectural richness extends beyond that, however, with examples of significant buildings erected as far back as the late 1880’s, just 40 years after Dallas’ founding. We will explore the history of the buildings and the culture of one of Dallas’ most interesting neighborhoods.

Our 90-minute outdoor architecture walking tour is led by a trained tour guide and will examine buildings from the 1890’s to the present day. You will explore the architectural detail of the district as well as the institutions, individuals and visionaries who are a part of this fascinating story.

Reservations and payment must be made in advance. Due to the necessity of scheduling docents, we are unfortunately unable to accommodate walk-ups.

Cancellations must be made 24 hours in advance of the tour time in order to receive a refund.

The tour does not include the interior of any of the buildings in the Dallas Arts District. For tours of the interiors of the buildings, please contact the individual venues. For tours of the AT&T Performing Arts Center Winspear Opera House and Wyly Theatre, please contact Charles Moore at charles.moore@attpac.org.

Parking

You may park either at the Dallas Museum of Art Parking Garage or at the Trammell Crow Center Parking Garage (entrance on Olive Street on weekends and pay the guard at the desk on the ground floor before you leave) or at a nearby surface lot or meter. This is an outdoor tour and includes both historical and architectural information about the venues and organizations in the Dallas Arts District.
