Explore The Ann & Gabriel Barbier-Mueller Museum: The Samurai Collection’s newest exhibition, IRON MEN: The Artistry of Iron in Samurai Armor, Saturdays and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. with free admission.

IRON MEN examines the vital role that iron played in Japanese warrior technology and culture from the fourth to nineteenth century. This exciting new exhibition features over eighty artworks including several masterpieces and many objects that have never before been on display. The armor has been assembled to highlight the ways in which this seemingly unyielding metal gave way to works of protective art.

Located at 2501 N. Harwood St., The Samurai Collection is housed on the second level of a historic Dallas landmark, the St. Ann’s School building, that is also home to Saint Ann Restaurant & Bar.

The Samurai Collection welcomes guests of all ages and is wheelchair accessible.
