We visited the Nasher Museum a few months ago and had dinner as well. Great museum, free after 5pm on Thursday nights too. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The gift shop is small but has some neat things in it. Dinner was very good and fairly priced. We are considering becoming members because it is a great museum. It can be a bit of a hike from the parking lot, just an FYI.

This small museum, housed in a modern state of the art building, is a pleasure. They sponsor some exhibitions that are very good/interesting- not everything will be from their collection. One can spend an enjoyable morning or afternoon browsing the exhibits and the small store. Try to include a meal while here, because they have a very good restaurant that uses local ingredients in good ways.

This is a beautiful building, inside and out. They regularly have world-class exhibits that are well-curated and interesting. Plus the rotating works they bring from their own collection are often great, too.
The cafe is my favorite place to eat outdoors because the food is good and you look out over an expanse of grass dotted with cool art.
The only down-side (for people over the age of 35) is that Duke students can eat here with the food card. It's a little disconcerting for someone who ate ramen in college! :-)

The museum is a must-see. We have gone when they have had exhibits that were in only two places in the United States and the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University was one of them. You have got to see it!
