|About these ratings|
Sitting across the street from the Dallas Museum of Art in the Big D's lively Arts District, the Nasher Sculpture Garden repeatedly wows locals and visitors with its striking indoor and outdoor galleries. The center houses more than 300 works of art by modern and contemporary artists like Matisse, Picasso and Rodin. Pieces here range from small marble sculptures to massive installations. Some recent travelers recommend participating in docent-led tour, available Tuesdays and Thursdays at 10 and 11 a.m. and all day Saturday, which is included in the admission price. To participate in a tour on Tuesday or Thursday, you must make reservations at least three weeks in advance; Saturday tours are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
The Nasher Sculpture Center also hosts a variety of lecture series and workshops geared toward adults interested in learning more about the museum's collection. And if you've got kids in tow, recent visitors recommend planning your visit for the first Saturday of the month when admission is free and family-friendly programs take place.
You'll find the Nasher Sculpture Center just north of downtown Dallas, within walking distance of the cable car stops at North St. Paul Street and Woodall Rodgers Freeway and North St. Paul Street and Munger Avenue (both serviced by the M-line streetcar). You can also reach the Nasher Sculpture Center by taking the Blue, Green, Orange or Red light rail line to St. Paul Station, located three blocks southeast of the museum. Additionally, there are parking lots and street parking available nearby, for a fee. The sculpture center (and its gift shop) is open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday; the on-site cafe stays open until 4 p.m. Admission is $10 for adults, $7 for seniors and $5 for students, and children ages 12 and younger can get in for free.
