We are so lucky that Raymond and Patsy Nasher loved Dallas so much and decided to donate the most amazing museum to the city. They build a gorgeous museum with the most fantastic sculpture art. What a legacy they left! The museum is fun and offers many programs to bring folks in. Don't miss it - it is truly a... More

We attended with a fines arts group visiting the area art museums and private collections. This is a terrific collection in their permanent works and worth seeing on its own.but we were particularly impressed by the temporary show of architecture. The way it was presented and the innovative design elements justify why architecture is sculpture. Terrific. If you are in... More

For me, it was only okay. The art is mostly contemporary and so for me it lacked personality. The garden is not that big and takes only a short time. The inside of the museum is only okay too. But this is from a person who prefers more traditional works of art.

The Nasher is a teriffic, beautiful, and world class sculpture center - an oasis of peace, calm, and civility in busy downtown. Admire the sculptures inside the aesthetically designed buiding and then move to the maticulous zen like grounds outside displaying some marvelous, jaw dropping sculptures....a wonderful space for a spring or fall stroll. Fantastic!

I took a group of 10 senior citizens to the museum and we were very disappointed. I have always loved the Nasher but this time it was a little run down. In the garden area most of the grass was gone and left with muddy areas. The once beautiful sculptures were covered in bird poop, leaves and just plain dirty.... More

A specific exhibit (David Bates) drew me t to the Nasher Sculpture Center. I loved my time there. I received a private tour by a museum ambassador who was fabulous. If you like to learn about art with an extremely knowledgeable and approachable person, request a tour. She helped me appreciate the phenomenal lighting provided by Renzo Piano's architecture and...

What you see may not necessarily be to your taste, but you'll find unique and interesting challenges for your esthetic perceptions, along with many traditional "old favorites" from many perspectives for enjoyable indoor and outdoor pleasures.

I have visited the Nasher numerous times and never tire of it. The architecture of the museum is itself an inspiring work of art, and the sculptures it showcases are beautiful and diverse. Each lecture and traveling exhibit I've attended has been illuminating. It is a perfect outing for a solo stroll or for large multi-generational groups, including those with... More

If you want to see Rodin, Picasso, Modigliani, MIro up close come here. We are fortunate to have some of those pieces here in Dallas and while not expansive it does save you a trip to France if you wanted to see Rodin's work up close. Love the ambiance and the light. The garden is so enjoyable but do go... More
