The Nasher is unique and therefore worth a visit simply because of that adjective. But it's more than unique. It combines cutting edge modern art w/ cutting edge modern architecture w/ cutting edge modern landscaping. It's the total package and you won't see anything remotely similar (except in Bilboa Spain at the Guggenheim). It is well worth a visit and... More

The Nasher has a great collection of art and sculpture and should not be missed especially the garden in the back. There usually is a great traveling exhibit there too in the main building. Nice gift shop too. It is right next to the Dallas Museum of Art. Great cultural district right in downtown.

This is one of my favorite museums in Downtown Dallas! I love their beautiful sculpture garden it is always stunning. I really enjoy the interactive art as well! Everyone year they display an artist's work that is interactive like the spinning chairs that they had in January, or the room filled with balloons, and even the musical staircase that played...

The Nasher is one of the premier attractions in Dallas! It is 100 feet from the Dallas Museum of Art, another gorgeous building and art center. The collection is first class and consists of a large and diverse class of well known modern era artists, including Brâncuși, Gauguin, Giacometti, Matisse, Miró, Henry Moore, Picasso, Rodin, and David Smith. Plan to... More

Spent a wonderful afternoon relaxing here; felt worlds away from the hustle and bustle outside. Visited with my young children, who also enjoyed it.

It was more of a modern art museum than classical sculpture. Not that there's anything wrong with that.... They seemed to have had most of the museum dedicated to one artist on this viewing A Melvin Edwards, whose medium appeared to be found art metal welded sculpture. As with anything, I have an eclectic interest in art, and some of... More

An exquisite collection and beautifully designed indoor and outdoor space makes the Nasher Dallas' best museum. The permanent collection consists of Ray Nasher's collection of primarily 20th century sculpture. The galleries are well-designed, and the amount of art is digestible and enjoyable. There's no sensory overload and no need to feel like you are rushing from piece to piece just... More

Perfect stop for an afternoon art indulgence. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. The Garden was superb!!! If you are in the area for a trip, be sure to go and take some time to meditate and relax. The sculptures are so interesting, the water feature and thick green grass only adds to the experience. We did not eat at... More

Beautiful sculptures, landscaping is zen, lovely, relaxing. This is an incredible oasis in the heart of downtown, near the Dallas Museum and the new elevated park with its wonderful food trucks. Come to downtown Dallas, there are lots of reasons, Nasher Sculpture Center is just one of the best!

I only visited the outside of this museum's sculpture garden. It was a sunny beautiful, warm day and perfect to be in the garden. The sculptures were impressive, especially the headless figures lined up in rows.
