    Dallas Museum of Art/Tut Exhibit

    I will be going to the Tut Exhibit in the next few days. Does anyone in Texas know if the Dallas Museum of Art is posted with a 30.06 sign?

    Thanks

    It hasn't been in years past. I've not been in a couple of years.

    Parking tip:

    Don't pay for parking accross the street at ground level. Park under the museum and get it validated when you leave. I had to go there for an art class assignment. I didn't go to the tut exhibit, but I really enjoyed the rest of the museum.

    I went to see this exhibit over Christmas, and had the same question. This is the response I got when I asked their public relations head.

    http://www.defensivecarry.com/vbulle...t-ccws-ok.html

    Short story is that they are not posted and do allow CCW. I carried through the exhibit without incident, and there were no metal detectors or signs anywhere. The rent-a-cop at the front glanced into my girlfriend's purse, and that was it.

    Is this hard to understand? Then why does it get unintelligible to some people when 5 little words are changed?

    A governing entity can not use the 30.06 restriction. If the building is owned or leased by Dallas County or the City of Dallas they can not post under PC 30.06

    Dallas Museum of Art

    My family and I are planning to visit this weekend. I emailed ahead to find out about their policy and I didn't receive a response so I called and talked to a woman who was polite but said "Leave it in the car there are signs posted on all our doors. " I'm still planning to visit so I'll check out these signs.

    Last time I went to a Tut exhibit, there were armed guards to protect the items. Don't know if they'd have protected the visitors...

    Museum Rules (email response from DMA)

    I was curious about this since I will be going there with my family soon so I emailed them to see what the official rules were. Long story made short, you cannot carry concealed in the building because it is considered an educational institution. They have classes for teachers and what not available according to their website. Posted is their response that was polite and informative, just an FYI.

    Email:

    Thank you for your email and for your upcoming visit to the Dallas Museum of Art.

    The DMA, in accordance with Texas 30.06 code (gun carry), falls under the educational institution guidelines which prohibits guns on the premises. I have listed this code below, it is also posted on the entrances to the Museum.

    Concealed handguns are not permitted:
    (1) on the physical premises of a school or educational institution, any grounds or building on which an activity sponsored by a school or educational institution is being conducted, or a passenger transportation vehicle of a school or educational institution, whether the school or educational institution is public or private, unless pursuant to written regulations or written authorization of the institution;

    I hope you and your family enjoy your upcoming visit and thank you again for emailing.
    Sincerely,
    Kimberly

    I did too, back in the 80's. It was funny - I had seen the exhibit in NY at Metropolitan and the lighting was dramatic and the exhibit was magnificent. Then I went to Cairo and in a dusty museum, they had all the same artifacts stuffed in one little room. Presentation, people, presentation!

    Yea that's when I was there also. The hodgepodge kinda way they had all the artifacts just kinda strewn around the entire museum was pretty amazing actually. Still was a neat place to visit nonetheless.
