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.

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

Visiting the Nasher Museum was a pleasant experience. Small museum with great permanent and temporary exhibits. We caught Carlo Dolci as the temporary exhibit and that was a great collection to appreciate. We also enjoyed going through the permanent collection. Although it is a small...More

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.
