A Hidden Gem Filled with a Thousand Years of Spanish Art
Located near the entrance to SMU's campus, The Meadows Museum houses one of the largest and most comprehensive collections of Spanish art outside of Spain. Its works date from the 10th to the 21st century, covering a thousand years of Spanish heritage.
The museum has been part of SMU since 1965 when Algur H. Meadows, a Texas philanthropist and oil financier who amassed his collection during business trips to Spain in the 1950s, gifted it to SMU. The museum was even inaugurated with a visit from King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia of Spain when it reopened in its current building in 2001.
It's a hidden gem and one of my favorite spots in the city. And, it's free on Thursday nights!
