On a cold or wet day, this is a great place to spend a couple of hours. We really enjoyed the Courtside photos of Bill Bamberger. The movie about John Akomfrah is worth viewing but read the description outside of the building first. We sat...More

I love this small museum. The recent Carlo Dolci exhibit was gorgeous. It's one of those where I had to go twice. This was the country's first ever exhibit by this Florentine painter. What a joy to see these lesser known pieces. Keep up the...More

Well designed, well organized, nice staff and plenty of art to see and talk about. Even the food is good. It seems to get better every time we visit. I must stop.

I went to the Nasher to see the Carlo Dolci Art Exhibit. Admission included the rest of the Nasher regular museum. The exhibit was nicely spaced, with good descriptions of each piece, and the area was properly lit to view the art.

This is a new addition to Durham as I have been here 31 years and the previous art collection was not housed in such a grand building. This is impressive. That we can also eat a great lunch or dinner while we see art is...More
