This is a really good University Art Museum. During your visit you may see students learning there trade and practicing their skills. Nice restaurant for salad or a sandwich. Go back several times as the museum changes the shows frequently.

The Nasher is always a treat to visit. Their permanent collection is large and growing. It is rotated through the exhibition space. The exhibitions are always well thought out and educational to the eyes and the brain.
