When Algur Meadows went to Spain to search for oil, he had no idea what his quest for oil would unveil. Whilst he was there, Meadows decided to visit the Prado Museum and so began his love for Spanish art. On the campus of the Southern Methodist University, lies another spectacular place worth a visit- the Meadows Museum of Art. The museum showcases works of art that Algur Meadows himself began collecting from the 15th to the 20th century. The collections cover almost a 1000 years and are grouped chronologically to add effect. The Meadows Museum of Art is the biggest collection of Spanish art outside of Spain.

  • A larger exhibit space than I expected. They focus on Spanish artists which is interesting. The space is lovely, the Dali exhibit we saw was nicely curated. Don't miss the art outside. They do not have a secure coat/bag check so consider leaving laptops etc at home.

  • The museum is not large, so don't expect a giant display but it definitely has an interesting collection and the staff do not hound you like many other museums these days. The only improvement I could suggest would be to hang some of the paintings a little lower or otherwise deflect the ceiling lights as, for shorter people like me, the glare from the lights reflects strongly off the paintings to the point where you have to stand over 10ft away and thus can't fully appreciate the detail in some of the pieces.

  • The artwork in the permanent collection is beautiful. Thursday evenings are free admission and a tour starts promptly at 6:30. I have always found the docents fairly knowledgeable of the works.

  • Lovely little place. We visited for the Salvador Dali exhibit, but there is so much more here. Really enjoyed our visit!

  • Loved the visit. Found an out-of-the-ordinary internationally famous artist's painting, Esteban Vicente. Hard to find! Overall exhibits, outstanding!!!!
