We viewed the Trammel Crow Sculpture Garden when our son was visiting. The Crow Collection of Asian Art is located to the rear of Trammel Crow's garden area.

An immense Buddha overlooking a sparkling fountain seemed to reign over the museum's entrance.

Inside, the Spinnaker Collection of Chinese Snuff Boxes was on display. These tiny creations were just gorgeous!

Other pieces were ethereal watercolors; carved jade; bright, examples of textile art and massive architectural pieces. Please see my additional pictures for these (pictures 2-5).

Picture 2 is a facade of a residence constructed of red sandstone in Rajasthan-style from the Mughal Period (1526-1756).

The museum, a project of the Crow family, is located in the Arts District of Dallas- a 17 block area in the northeast area of the city. Hours are Tuesday-Sunday from 10 am-5pm, Thursday evening until 9. Closed on Mondays, January 1, July 4, Thanksgiving and December 25.

If you visit on Thursday at 6:30 p.m. or on Saturday at 1:00 p.m. you can receive a free guided tour of the center. A sculpture garden tour is also available on Sundays at 1:00 pm.
