Worth a Stroll Ever So Often, Especially with a Date

The foliage from the deciduous tree, the green lawns, and water fountains provide a very pleasant milieu to enjoy the lovely sculptures.

This was really fun and we took lots of photos. I enjoyed the outdoor area much more than the inside which was more like a museum. Very shady so a good place to go on a sunny, hot Dallas day!

Early spring is an excellent time to enjoy the sculptures in the garden or sit outdoors and enjoy lunch. The exhibits are quite relaxing and one can walk among the different museums in this location

It is a very nice and relaxing place to walk or just to seat and enjoy. It has very nice sculptures and the park is close to downtown so you can program several activities.

The Nasher is across the street from the Museum of Art and well worth the trip there. It is a small museum with an outdoor permanent collection and a changing indoor exhibit. Every time I visit Dallas I look forward to a short visit in their gardens. It is inspiring, relaxing, and just beautiful.

The Nasher family collected the best art and gave it, in a sense, to the residents and visitors to Dallas. Renzo Piano designed the museum. Unfortunately, a nearby high rise has ruined one of the best outdoor installations. Still, a lovely visit.

Beautiful sculptures and lawn. Giacometti, Calder, Ernst, Matisse, Moore, Serra, Gauguin, Rodin, Long, and Picasso among many others are part of their permanent collection. I am heartbroken that the James Turrell installation has been permanently closed.

Fantastic place to visit after the fine art of the Dallas Museum of Art. Modern and contemporary sculpture at its best. There's also a charming film about Mr and Mrs Nasher which should be seen before going around so that one can put the collection in the context of their marriage and interests. What wonderful people they must have been... More

Although there is an admission charge for this museum, it was a bargain! Rarely can this much amazing, accessible, interesting and stirring art be found in such an atmosphere. Make sure you see the introductory film in the ground floor theatre. And then go outside and take your time strolling, enjoying and drinking in the fine pieces. The interior art... More

The interior gallery is an architectural beauty; you feel as though you're on the deck of a massive ark surrounded by living and breathing objects. Getting 360-degree views of different types of constructions and materials offers a focus that one may not experience at a typical art museum. While I did not like the Giuseppe Penone exhibit, the sculptures in... More
