The Old Red Museum
The Old Red Museum Dallas Reviews
Landmark Building in Dallas Aug 01, 2008
One trip to downtown Dallas and you can see a lot of historical sites including the spot where Kennedy got shot, but if you are like many, you may not even know where to begin. Recently, the old Red Museum which is actually the old Dallas County Courthouse renovated.
This historical Old Red Courthouse building is located in the heart of Downtown Dallas, occupying the block bounded by Houston Street, Main Street, Commerce Street, and the JFK Memorial Plaza. It is a site that can’ be missed.
Inside this building you will find the Dallas tourist and information office. They have information about things to do and places to see in the Dallas area as well as surrounding areas as far away as San Antonio. They have three public computers available free of charge. It is a clean spacious place to come and visit. There is also a very friendly staff willing to help out and give some suggestions on how to spend a few days in the Big D.
Also house in the building is the recently renovated museum dedicated the history of the Dallas County community. They have a lot of educational programs for various ages. The Neon Pegasus has to be one of the most famous residents in the museum. An afternoon of exploring here takes on a new meaning when you follow the renovations and the history of this building. You can also check out their website and see a lot of the things that are available. We tried to get a few pictures of that neon icon whispering in our ear. It is a great place to take children, or just a place to come in and cool off from the heat of the hot Dallas heat.
