Are you looking for something fun to do on a Saturday?
Why not visit the city's specialty museums where you'll discover a variety of unique exhibits?
Those not to be missed include:
African American Museum
The African American Museum was established in the early 1970s, and it's dedicated to the preservation and presentation of historical documents and visual art forms of the African American community. The museum is the only one of its kind in the southwestern region, and it calls a seven million dollar building inside Fair Park home. Visitors can see one of the country's largest collections of African American folk art, and highlights include masks, sculptures, and textiles.
Frontiers of Flight Museum
The Frontiers of Flight Museum celebrates some of the greatest achievements in aviation and space flight. Established in 1988, it spans more than 100,000 square feet and allows visitors to explore the chronological development of human flight from the Leonardo da Vinci parachute through space exploration. Some of the most popular collections include the early biplanes and historical military aircraft, and the museum is open daily.
Dallas Heritage Village
The Dallas Heritage Village strives to collect, preserve, and teach the history of North Central Texas. The museum sits on the land that was once the site of the city's first park, and both its collections and historic buildings represent the period between 1840 and 1910. Highlights include medical tools, clothing, and homemade frontier chairs.
The Village also offers exciting adult programs such as the Farina Lecture Series and blacksmithing classes, as well as guided tours for groups of five or more.
