Established in 1965 by Texas philanthropist and oil financier Algur H. Meadows, the Meadows Museum is one of the southwest's leading art institutions. After many hours spent at the Museo Nacional del Prado in Madrid on business trips to Spain, Meadows started collecting his own art. After starting The Meadows Foundation (a foundation started in 1948 to raise money for a wellspring of resources to benefit the people of their state of Texas) with his wife, Meadows gave Southern Methodist University funds for a museum to house his Spanish collection. Since its opening in 1965, the Meadows Museum has received numerous donations and funding to expand its collection, serving a broad domestic and international audience as well as the university community.

Outstanding venue and service
We had our reception in the Great Jones Hall at the Meadows Museum, and it was the ideal venue for our wedding of 60 guests. Its elegance was the most outstanding quality. The exterior of the museum is stunning, set on the gorgeous SMU campus, and the interior is impeccable. The logistics were very easy to navigate--from parking for guests (EASY) to the use of an SMU caterer (YUM!) There are also great hotels within easy walking distance for out-of-town guests. I highly recommend this venue!Sent on 02/02/2019

My daughter’s wedding day was magical in large part because of this venue. We highly recommend the museum. Robin and Pam were simply the best in regards to planning, communicating and being there hands on. We can not recommend the Meadows Museum to host a wedding. We had everything there. We had the ceremony in Gates Hall and a sit down dinner/reception in the Jones Hall.Sent on 07/16/2019
