  • Jean Arp is not seen enough. The showing at the Nasher helps a wider audience to see and get acquainted with this innovative sculptor. The other Nasher displays are also well worth seeing, especially ...  more »

  • The reason for 3 stars is because basically the entire inside was closed off to set up a new show, but nobody told us that when we first got there and paid. We could have spent our time differently or allocated it differently had we known. The sculpture garden itself was amazing and we had such a nice time enjoying it! They give out clipboards and drawing tools to the kids so they can sketch throughout the museum, which is genius! My 4 year old loved drawing the sculptures and my 18 month old even enjoyed it in spurts! Would love to go back when the inside is set up.
  • I was here for the first time for "Target First Saturday", family program where we can bring kids to have art activities. The architecture and the garden are spectacular. The art pieces were a little bit too modern to my taste, but still they were nicely put with perfect lighting. The staff are super nice and informative. I am just very disappointed with their "art activities for kids". For "art museum", I was expecting something more sophisticated than just coloring and building blocks. Obviously we can do coloring and building block at home! Compare to Dallas Museum Art art activities, where you can actually making something like jewelry, map of the world etc. with art supplies that needs extra effort to find and prepare. Something more than what we usually do at home.
