Great museum that is well designed and curated. Good variety of art spread out in different areas of the building. Definitely worth the visit. One additional note is that they provide a guided tour on Sunday and Thursday. We happen to have arrived 5 minutes before a tour was starting, so we decided to try it. We did not feel the person giving the tour was very good and only focused on a single work of art in each room that we entered. Room for improvement with the tours if that is typical.

Very cool museum. Not really big, but the art is varied and worth seeing. Admission is free.

The museum was lovely and easy to navigate. I enjoyed the exhibits. I thought the collections were well curated. I went on a Sunday, it was not busy. Best of all it was free to enter.

Visiting the Nasher Museum of Art was a truly enriching experience. The museum's impressive collection of contemporary and modern art spans various mediums, providing a diverse and thought-provoking display. The architecture of the museum itself is a work of art, and the layout is well-designed, making it easy to navigate.

I cannot believe we waited so long to visit, but we'll be back. So many interesting art pieces to see and learn about -- I found the Peruvian and African artifacts fascinating. There something for everyone at the Nasher!

Beautiful museum. Makes for a fun little outing with the family. I was able to drop off older relative easily on side entrance and they had wheel chairs to make her experience more enjoyable.

Excellent and diverse at collection. Each piece has a detailed description and often artist information. It was definitely worth the trip.

Wow, such a beautiful place it is. It was a weekday that we were there, and there was a gallery opening that day. Really loved the new collection. The concept of changing the art exhibits every once in a while is very thoughtful. Hope to come back again for newer exhibits.

Came here on vacation and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Everything was well managed including people walking around making sure no one touched or bumped anything.

Wow such a great museum. I went in a visit for class so we were able to see the storage room. the art was breathe taking. The staff was sooo friendly and helped answer questions in an informed manner. I was there during spirit in the land which was a beautiful collection. I would definitely recommend this to a friend and will 100% come back next time i’m near duke!

I adore the Nasher. We’ve been a few times recently and now it’s free thanks to some generous support. There is a fee to park, but I think it’s free on the weekends. The cafe is excellent, very delicious food and drinks. Check out the gift shop for fun ideas. They have free lockers and a coat room up the stairs. Lastly- the art!! Go check out the art!!!! So much amazing ancient and modern art with changing exhibits. I highly recommend to take the family, go with friends, or beautiful for a date.

The Nasher is ALWAYS a wonderland of delights. The items on display from the permanent collection are absolutely fascinating and the special exhibitions are knock-your-socks-off exciting. All of the works are consistently thought-provoking with very informative written information clearly on view. Every trip to the Nasher is an awe-inspiring, unforgettable adventure!
