Do Dallas: The Women's Museum
Thursday, June 22, 2006
Fair Park is one of my favorite Dallas locations. Mainly, it's because of a few bars in the area. However, across the street from the wonderful Meridian Room sits The Women's Museum, an equally remarkable venue, or so I hear. Every time I walk from the Meridian Room to the Fallout Lounge, I see it looking at me, wondering when I'm going to visit it. I try not to look it in the eye, because I'm ashamed of myself for not yet taking a walk through one of Dallas' top attractions.

The Women's Museum: An Institute for the Future is a Smithsonian affiliate and is the United States' only comprehensive women's history museum. Opening in 2000, the museum chronicles the lives of more than 3,000 U.S. women using interactive exhibits to explore their contributions throughout U.S. history, and to examine the similarities and differences among women's lives across time. The museum offers educational and enrichment programs, group tours and school tours.

The museum is located at 3800 Parry Avenue in Fair Park. Currently through Sept. 10, the museum will host a special exhibit: Women Photographers at National Geographic.
