WELCOME TO THE JESUIT DALLAS MUSEUM

The Jesuit Dallas Museum was incorporated in 1986 as a non-profit institution to enhance the educational experience of students and the broader community through awareness, appreciation, and passion for art. Art from the collection is a creative and enjoyable way to reinforce many classroom concepts. We work with teachers to select artwork, design hands-on projects and create educational programs to enrich a variety of academic subjects from English and History to Mathematics and Science.
