Stuck in Dallas because of Sandy? Visit the Meadows Museum for free
It's better than sitting in the airport.
DALLAS Hurricane Sandy is the hot topic this week on the news. But Hurricane Sandy won't come close to DFW, so what can we say about it? Well, plenty: Flights from Dallas are being delayed or canceled, and the Red Cross needs your donations to combat this storm that will cause $20 billion -- with a B -- in economic damage.
For tourists stuck in Dallas, Southern Methodist University has a plan: Visit the school's Meadows Museum for free. According to Meadows officials, if you can show ID from one of the states affected by Frankenstorm, they'll let you in to peruse their mostly Spanish art exhibitions at no charge.
The big exhibit on display right now is Diego Velázquez: The Early Court Portraits. It includes Velázquez' first painting of Philip IV.
The museum is located on SMU's campus and is closed Mondays. It's open late on Thursdays, until 9 p.m.
