If you have been keeping up with my YouTube channel, you may have seen my vlog of how I spent my August. It was during this month that I started to think more about how I can make the most out of my time since we will be in this for the long haul. I recently wrote a post reflecting on quarantine as one does after realizing it’s been six full months, and I talked about the weird tug-of-war of wanting to live life to the fullest but not knowing what that looks like during a pandemic. Even though there are certain things I am not interested in or don’t feel safe doing, I know it is impossible to find 100% enjoyment from being in the house 24/7. So, I have researched some socially-distanced and mostly free things to do here in Dallas that I think will be even more enjoyable as we settle into fall.
- Dallas Museum of Art (Downtown)
I am a museum person through and through and I think it has been amazing that so many of the most coveted museums around the world have managed to make their exhibitions virtual. Dallas Museum of Art (DMA) is one of my favorite art museums and it re-opened in August to limited capacity, hours, and days of operation. Knowing how easy it is to socially distance yourself in a museum, I decided to check it out and see how this experience has been updated. Masks are required, there is only one entrance and exit out of the museum, and the check-in process for ticketing is completely contactless as tickets have to be reserved online in advance for a specific time slot. General admission is free, but you have to pay for special exhibitions.
