The Old Red Museum is a fascinating landmark for anyone interested in the history of Dallas. The museum is located on top of the beautifully restored Old Red Courthouse, and it is filled to the brim with artifacts and literature about Dallas’s past. Each room in the museum is dedicated to a different time period, so walking through the exhibits feels like walking through the city’s history. To add to the experience, 41 touch screen computers allow you to view photos and videos and listen to interviews with prominent residents, and many include narration describing the artifacts in the room.
The Old Red Museum asks a modest admission price of $8 for adults and $5 for children, with a $5 Early Bird special on Sundays. It is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, and a list of upcoming exhibits is available on the museum’s website.
