The Crow Museum of Asian Art is a museum in downtown Dallas, Texas, dedicated to celebrating the arts and cultures of Asia including China, Japan, India, Korea, Nepal, Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand, Indonesia, Myanmar and the Philippines, from ancient to the contemporary. The Crow Museum opened to the public on December 5, 1998, as a gift to the people and visitors of Dallas from Mr. and Mrs. Trammell Crow. The museum is a member of the Dallas Arts District. The interior was designed by Booziotis and Company Architects of Dallas.
Trammell and Margaret Crow bought their first piece of Asian art in the mid-1960s. The Crows have traveled extensively throughout the world, but Asia was a favorite destination. Pieces from Southeast Asian countries such as China, Japan, and India were added as the Crows' travels continued, evolving into a distinguished collection featuring artwork spanning 3500 B.C. to the early 20th century.

This place is awesome! Total hidden gem, and way more worthwhile than the Dallas Museum of Art nearby. It's free, has excellent staff and some really cool pieces. The only drawback is that it's fairly small and most of the exhibits above the ground floor are closed.

Highly advised, especially if you have a serious interest in asian artifacts. Nothing but high quality pieces here. It's a family friendly environment as well and never too crowded or anything like that. The fact that it is indeed "free" makes it all the more enjoyable.

The crow museum is a hidden gem in Dallas, often over looked by museum goers headed next door to the Nasher and DMA. If you're in the area take the time to stop at the Crow! It has great exhibits, a wonderfully preserved collection, and pieces that you can't see anywhere else. Be sure to walk down the street a bit to their gift shop too, because they sell all kinds of goodies there including relatively cheap pieces by their up and coming artists in residence!

Their hours changed so we showed up about 30 minutes before closing, but we still had time to go through the museum. One floor was closed for renovations, so I took my time on the first floor while my kids and husband rushed through the first and third floors. In 30 minutes, I got to read most of the plaques for the items on the first floor, which was Japanese art. The employees were very friendly and it was free to get in. So, even though the museum is small, it is a must-see and good experience.

With the renovations, there really isn't a lot there. I'll admit it was interesting, but wait until they open the upper level back up
