I think they are undergoing some maintenance. All the major modern art pieces are missing. I can see all that from the video downstairs but don't get to see those pieces myself. Even though i had 50% off the ticketed price, there seems to be nicer modern art sculpture on display on the North Park Center and it is free... More

I was there with two kids for the Target promotional first Saturdays geared towards kids. This museum made little effort to make it "kid friendly" however. The building was difficult to maneuver with a stroller and the exhibits inside bored my kids to tears. My kids did love the outside garden though. The cafeteria had very good food though none...

Living in Dallas I had a membership to the Nasher. It is a beautiful museum and sculpture garden in the heart of the city. From the garden you can see the impressing architecture around. The Nasher has a small but very good restaurant - catered by Wolfgang Puck but not too pricey. The exhibits are changing so it is always... More

They were in the process of constructing two exhibits, so the cost was half price, but there was not much to see. The outdoor sculpture park was quite nice and by far the best thing to see. Check ahead but I'm sure the exhibits are now on display.

We decided to go to Nasher at the last minute and loved it! Wish it was open past 5pm we could have spent all night there drinking wine and appreciating the sculptures.

It is located between the Trammel Crowe museum of Asian Art and the Dallas Museum of Art, both free. So all together visiting this area is an inexpensive opportunity to see a lot of interesting art. Its dining room offers a pleasant lunch for a reasonable price. Its indoors and outdoors sculpture are both worth while seeing and provide a... More

They only had a few artists' works displayed. I was expected a bit more, especially outdoors. They had some interesting pieces, but just not a lot of sculptures in my opinion. I had in my mind Seattle's sculpture park, which is an awesome outdoor park so compared to that this is pretty small and not a lot of variety.

One would think these sculptures have graced the grounds for centuries the way the gardens n sculptures entwine. Strolling through the trails, sitting on a bench, or even laying on the grass make this walk through sculpture park a delight for any age. It is truly one of Dallas' greatest gifts from the very generous and caring Nasher family. Dallasites... More

A museum devoted to 3D art is unusual, and this one adds a great environment in the form of an enclosed downtown park. Some of the most provocative sculptures are in the park. Unfortunately, Nasher was such an exceptional collector, many of his best items are frequently loaned out. The restaurant is run by a famous chef. What could be... More
