What You'll Get
Museums, like high school yearbooks, provide glimpses into the past to remind onlookers how much better life is without the threat of dodgeball matches with Mongol upperclassmen. Enjoy eastern artifacts with a relatively low risk of ball-induced nosebleeds with today's Groupon, which gets you membership at the The Crow Collection of Asian Art, located in the Dallas Arts District. Choose between the following options:
- For $29, you get the Magnolia Circle membership, good for all the active membership benefits for two adults (a $65 value).
- For $55, you get the Pearl Circle membership, good for all the active membership benefits for two adults plus opportunities to join interest groups (a $125 value).
Highly recommended by Frommer’s, The Crow Collection of Asian Art spans thousands of years with a gallery that boasts Chinese jades, Buddhist sculptures, and Japanese screen paintings. The upcoming "Soaring Voices" exhibit features a contemporary collection of ceramics from the clay-covered hands of women artists, and a current exhibit entitled Mighty Meiji Metals: Sculpture from 19th Century Japan depicts themes from Japanese history through ornate metallic artifacts. Both the Magnolia and Pearl Circle memberships include announcements of exhibitions, invitations to members' previews, free or discounted admission to special events, and a 10% discount in the Lotus Shop. The Pearl Circle membership additionally gets you access to interest groups like the North American Reciprocal Museum Program, which provides discounts on admission, gift shops, parking passes for dragons under 23 feet tall, and concert and lecture tickets in over 300 museums in North America.

- Fronted by a serene black fountain with a sculpture of a Taoist deity in the center, the Crow Collection has incredibly unique designs to its galleries that cater specifically to the origins of the art housed in each room. – D magazine
- This is a "full service" museum offering a lovely postmodern open glass and stone space that houses a permanent rotating collection, private collections, touring exhibitions, events, lectures, and classes. Zen meditation, yoga, and thai chi are practiced here by experts and beginners alike. – Christopher H., Yelp
