  • This is a big building in the middle of Nottingham. We saw 4 big galleries, each with one exhibit, and one with a film showing. I think the space could have been used better. Lots of staff present.  more »

  • Was here for an event, was not impressed that they decided to turn the single disabled toilet on the last level into the males changing room. That was not good. The women's changing room was a corner of the hall the even was being held in. Using up the disabled room was ridiculous. Also in this building, a lot of people seem to use a live that goes down 1 level. Leaving wheelchair users to wait several trips to actually use it. Was good, there was just very little regard for disabled people.
  • It's a shame I don't get to come to Nottingham more often because I love visiting the Contemporary. The variety of shows on is great; sometimes simultaneously. Beautiful building and usually curated brilliantly. Great location too, although I would prefer to go next door for a drink afterwards (the church is magnificent inside).
  • Have only visited once, but was impressed. Has a nice atmosphere and a good cafe/bar.
  • Exhibitions change fairly frequently so this isn't a rating of what's on. It's free to enter and donations can be make to support the contemporary exhibitions. Good presentation spaces. Can be fun to explore and then enjoy the cafe and bar downstairs. There are workshops for young kids which will relate to something in the exhibition. Fun for adults as well. Not far from the station and worth a visit.
  • If you gave an hour or so to spare in Nottingham then have a look at the contemporary art museum, they have a good exhibition with Wu Tsang and Lara Favaretto. The videos are very good and Lara has some great pieces. Nottingham contemporary is located at Lace market and is well served by public transport and it is about a 10 minute walk from the station. They also have a nice cafe in the basement.
