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.

Good food and drink menu in an elegant setting. If the weather is nice, the outdoor patio provides a welcome, uncrowded space.

Not a large museum but they have an interesting permanent collection and we saw a very nice special exhibit there. Worth the trip and the time to visit.

It is a small museum, but it is very nice. They also have nice glasses. As a Duke employee, my visit was free.

For $14 each admission, we expected a museum experience, not just one exhibit. The Dolci was pretty great, more so because we've been to Florence, Italy experienced similar pieces. It took all of an hour.
