I love the Nasher for all sorts of occasions. I have been to a wedding there, which was beautiful, but I would definitely go do their movie night again. They have a band play and then play a movie on the lawn and local vendors sell food/wine. Great date night!

The sculpture garden is a wonderful place to go and sit and spend some time. Don't go there in a rush or on a schedule.

The outside pieces in this location were amazing. So intriguing to see other's talents. They also have some original Picasso pieces. FYI: the location is not that big, but it is worth the fee.

wait until the first Saturday of the month if possible. Admission is free then. I'm not an art aficionado of any sort, but I didn't see anything in the exhibits that justified an admission fee. The grounds are nice and well kept. The center opens at 11, go as early as you can. In the afternoon, sun reflects off the... More

Museums usually are large and you can't get through them in one trip. I will return to the Nasher, but you can get through the exhibits in less than 2 hours. We saw Picassos, Calder, Rodin and Matisse in that time. The outdoor gallery was very peaceful and shady-we were able to enjoy it on a July afternoon. Thank you,... More

The sculptures are incredible. The building itself is beautiful and the gardens amazing. My out-of-town guests were impressed.

The visit to to this sculpture center was, by far, the highlight of my trip to Dallas. The pieces were wonderfully set and spaced, and the environment was lovely and peaceful!

I called The Nasher Sculpture Center to book a docent for my kids. You can do a self-guided tour, however I wanted to get the most out of our visit(the kids don't always self-guide very well). Ester was very accommodating and was able to book us for the date and time I requested. Tom was our docent and was great... More

The Nasher normally charges a fee for admission, except for the first Saturday of each month. Last night was the museum block party so admission was free from 6pm-midnight. They had tons of Picasso's work on display. There are also several sculptures outside in the garden area. They have movie nights on Fridays in the summer so that looked like... More

The location boasts most exquisite collection inside and out! Our favorite is the outdoor 'gardens' and dining. Weather permitting, it provides a terrific backdrop to Dallas. Allow time to enjoy the outdoors and then go across street to DMA for its treasures. Remember to allow time for the Perot Asian collection right across street also. This is a 'hidden' gem... More
