The Ann & Gabriel Barbier-Mueller Museum: The Samurai Collection has been selectively amassed by Ann and Gabriel Barbier-Mueller and their children over the past 25 years. The museum is located in Dallas’ district of HARWOOD at the historic St. Ann’s School. Centuries of craftsmanship are represented in the collection, with objects dating from the seventh to nineteenth centuries. Samurai masterpieces, including suits of armor, helmets, masks, horse armor, and weaponry, are on display in the museum, within a traveling exhibition, and in the lobbies of Harwood International developments.

Open Tuesday through Sunday, The Samurai Collection is always free to the public. The Samurai Collection also features two regularly recurring events each month - Family Day, hosted every first Saturday, and the After-Hours Cocktail Tour every last Thursday. On your next visit, be sure to ask about The Samurai Collection's collaboration with French fashion house Hermès. 

Through July 16, 2017, The Samurai Collection's traveling exhibition will be on view at the Phoenix Art Museum. Samurai: Armor from the Ann and Gabriel Barbier Mueller Collection features more than 140 objects of warrior regalia, with full suits of armor, helmets and face guards, weapons, horse trappings, and other battle gear. It traces the evolution of the distinctive appearance and equipment of the samurai through the centuries and examines the warriors’ history through works of consummate craftsmanship and exquisite design.
