The Dallas Arts District and the Dallas Center for Architecture are proud to present an architecture walking tour of the largest urban arts district in the United States.

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 buildings present at the turn of the 19th century when the neighborhood was the poshest residential district in town on one end and a vibrant African-American settlement on the other.

Our 90-minute 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.

Tours are held on the first and third Saturdays of each month, beginning at 10:00 a.m. at the ceremonial entrance to the Dallas Museum of Art (Flora and Harwood).  The tour lasts approximately 90 minutes and is held rain or shine.

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.
