It was nice of the Nashers to share this with us. It is best to visit during cooler weather and not at the height of the sun

I was so thrilled to be able to visit the Nasher Sculpture Center in Dallas, Texas last week. I had not been in a museum of this contemporary artistic content and caliber since my time in New York City. I used to be a member of the Museum of Modern Art years ago and the Nasher Sculpture Center is the... More

The Nasher Sculpture Center doesn't yet have a massive collection, but its 300 plus works of art paint a broad spectrum of 20th century sculpture. It is all housed in a marvelous work of architecture by Renzo Piano, who designed an egg-crate & glass roof to enhance the light in the galleries. In addition there is a relaxing garden with... More

We had not planned a visit there, but rather we stumbled upon it. While everyone raves about it, we were pretty divided on this because we don't 'get' modern art. However it was the things on the inside that was more fascinating. Interesting sculptures nevertheless. I wouldnt go in if I have to pay, but it's free so why not... More

It's not even the sculptures that make this place do great, it's the entire experience. First the building is a magnificent creation and utilization of space. That is one part that makes the experience, it's not crowded and your able to easily navigate between at pieces and exhibit rooms. The building has such a bright and modern look a very... More

The Nasher offers so much, inside and out. But it's the outside that will stick with you. Stroll among the amazing pieces of art and be sure to go into the little building at the far end of the garden. On a day with fluffy clouds and a breeze, this is about as close to peace as you'll find anywhere.
