  • I've seen pictures online of some of the exhibits and the art museum looked like something I would enjoy so we decided to make a trip to Raleigh to see it. On our visit it was basically empty with onl...  more »
  • Great little museum. Only four artists on display while we were there but they were talented. Tour takes less than one hour.  more »
  • There are only 3 exhibits on, but I liked them all. It was a good air conditioned stop on a hot day. $5 admission.  more »

  • I try to visit the place every first Friday, when the museum is open late (I believe until 10p). They usually have a nice rotation of exhibits, frequently by local artists. I also really enjoy the making station they put up for first Friday. I always take my friends here if they happen to be in town for first Friday, and then cover the galleries nearby. CAM also has a food truck outside on first Fridays, which is a bonus (I don't think they do on other days). It's located in one of my favorite areas of town (Warehouse District), and there's lots of things to do around after the museum.
  • Was not impressed. A friend and I visited on a Sunday. Not too busy, but soon to figure out why. They charged a $5 entry fee. The ONLY art on file was the main room that had been decorated by black and white masking tape. The rest of the museum was "under renovations." It would have been better to have just closed the museum for the day.
  • Edgy exhibits... Fantasy guns made of assemblages of found objects, a series of liberated studies of female Disney characters/heroines, and a fantastic series of drawings/paintings about Obama's famous mike drop. Interesting and contemporary. I'll be going back!
  • Really nice museum, albeit not very big. College students get in for free as well as a number of other people (ie senior citizens) and the reception staff was very polite. They had a really cool Disney princess installment when I went where an artist reimagined Disney princesses as modern day activists.
  • There aren't very many works of art to see here. Good thing we came on first friday and didn't pay admission. Also, I've been here twice over the course of one year and most of the exhibitions are the same.
