Nasher Sculpture Center Tours

Nasher Sculpture Center
The Dallas Arts District’s Nasher Sculpture Center is home to some of the finest examples of modern sculpture in the world. With more than 300 pieces in the permanent collection, visitors can see works by Alexander Calder, Willem de Kooning, Pablo Picasso, and Alberto Giacometti, plus special exhibits featuring artwork on loan.

The Basics
Your visit to the Nasher Sculpture Center includes a self-guided audio tour any time, or a guided tour at designated times throughout the week. Buying your ticket in advance ensures you won’t have to wait in line, and it also includes any special exhibits, along with a free guided tour of the indoor and outdoor galleries.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The Nasher Sculpture Center is a must-do for fans of modern art.
  • Guided tours are scheduled at select times throughout the week.
  • Admission discounts are available for senior citizens, teachers, students; military, first responders, and children under 12 are free. The museum is free to all on the first Saturday of each month.
  • There are a few outdoor galleries, so keep that in mind in case of rain. The museum has a limited number of loaner umbrellas.
  • Enjoy lunch on the on-site Nasher Cafe by Wolfgang Puck terrace, and then shop for a gift or souvenir at the Nasher Store.
  • The museum is accessible to wheelchair users, and there are resources for visitors with vision and hearing impairments, autism, and other special needs.

How to Get There
The Nasher Sculpture Center is located next to the Dallas Museum of Arts in the downtown Dallas Arts District. Underground paid parking is available at the Dallas Museum of Art. You can take the Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) to the Pearl/Arts District station or St. Paul station and walk three blocks north to Flora Street, or take the free D-Link bus to the Dallas Arts District (Stop 19).

When to Get There
The museum is open from 11am to 5pm Tuesday through Sunday except for July 4, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s Day. It is busier on weekends, especially the once-monthly free Saturdays.
 
Renzo Piano’s Architectural Masterpiece
The building that houses the Nasher, designed by Renzo Piano and Peter Walker, is itself a work of art, with a glass roof designed to shower the space with filtered sunlight. However, construction of a nearby luxury condominium tower with a glass skin stirred up a “glare dispute” controversy, as it has reflected too much sun and flooded the Nasher with light.
