This is an intimate museum that offers a glimpse into the world of modern sculpture. The works were very accessible and of excellent quality. The staff was pleasant and helpful. It was also nice that some of the collection is outdoors, but mostly viewable from indoors.

The gardens and the museum proper have an amazing collection that makes one think of the long time away when we had all the famous benefactors of the arts in the great cities. We seem to not get collections like these any more.

My favorite part of the Nasher isn't even inside the walls! It's outside! Peace and calm in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the City! Amazing collection as well!

Stopped by the Nasher last week to take in the David Bates exhibit. Thoroughly enjoyed his works and was fascinated by how the viewing experience changed as we walked around the museum and looked up close vs. from a distance. The outside sculpture garden is so tranquil and a wonderful oasis hidden in the city under the high rise buildings.... More

A lot of interesting art, as well as some that was not so great. I'm glad to have done it once but probably won't bother again any time soon.

Dallas is a boring city, and when you read about it and see the brochures etc, you can see they really struggle to list places of interest. In this cowboy, carnivore heartland of Texas, there is not much beyond the rodeo and slaughtering cows. But Nasher Sculpture Center is an exception. It is an oasis of serenity and beauty. The...

If you are in the Arts District of Dallas, the Nasher Sculpture Center is a must see. This is modern art with intriguing works. You'll enjoy the stroll through the outside garden area to view the amazing sculptures scattered throughout.

The Nasher Sculpture Garden is a wonderful escape into culture for about an hour. It is not very large as result the indoor collection can be seen in about 1/2 hour and another 1/2 hour for the outdoor collection. There are many examples of sculpture from very famous artists around the world here. Many are a Must see for once... More

On a cold wintery day we went out of our way to visit and found that half of it was closed because they were setting up a new exhibit. What we saw was interesting; but not worth the money. The Modern Museum in Ft. Worth was also partially closed due to setting up a new exhibit; but they discounted the... More

Our family did our first visit to the Nasher on the Target First Saturday program. That was great since it was FREE admission for everyone. It was a beautiful March day in Dallas and the Gardens were a perfect setting for the sculpture of Texan David Bates, Miro, Picasso, and other modern artists. Even though it was a free Saturday...
