Concierge.com's insider take:
The world's hottest museum designer, Renzo Piano, outdid himself with this exceptionally transparent glass, travertine, and aluminum construction in the heart of the Dallas Arts District, across the street from the Dallas Museum of Art. Local collector Raymond Nasher's internationally coveted collection of modern sculpture is revealed in Piano's beautifully bared galleries, which open onto a refined, oasislike sculpture garden. A light supper at Café Nasher on a Thursday evening, when the museum is open late and the lit-up office buildings tower overhead, is a sublimely romantic urban experience.
Open Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays 11 am to 5 pm, Thursdays 11 am to 9 pm.
