The African American Museum in Fair Park is an often overlooked cultural jewel in Dallas. If you are an art lover then this museum can't be missed. Currently, they have a can't be missed exhibit on the famous Mahalia Jackson. I recently visited this exhibit and couldn't believe the number of art mediums used to pay tribute to her. There are 51 contributing artists offering their artistic vision of the Queen of Gospel. Art lovers will love this gallery.
There is also gallery featuring local artist's art work, a gallery dedicated to the story of the Freedman's Cemetary which is very interesting, and then there are several sculptures on their patio. It is a small museum that takes about an hour to see, but it is a perfect Bohemian event!
