The NC Museum of Art offers a collection spanning more than 5,000 years, a variety of exhibitions and programs, and the nation’s largest art museum park.
Outside cinema in the summer, walk with outside sculpture and enjoy a great museum.
Movie nights during the summer are the best here!
The collection here is pretty good. I love the outdoor spaces.
Beautiful interior spaces, great event calendar, and lovely sculpture park.
We are surprisingly lovers of art!
Terrible music venue. The pit sits higher than the first few rows of seats making it impossible to see the stage. Rude staff, no ADA area that's actually marked. Will never see a concert here again.
Depending on the types of art that interest you, there appears to be a little of everything. Including a little walking trail. Good for a couple hours.
It's free, and there's lots of great pieces here. What more could you ask for?
Make sure to use the cell phone tour - with audio wand, calling or downloading from website - great insight and one of my favorites!
Here to watch "The Porsche Way" as part of the "Porsche By Design" exhibit here at NCMA. #ncma #porsche #theporscheway #porschebydesign
I can now Remove from my bucket list. :)
Get here early or this is all you'll see!
They host interesting, solid events (movie series). Their grounds are beautiful and are themselves interesting to look at and explore--and they're free!
Great walking trails.
Membership is cheap. Check out the Audubon display!
After the Mona Lisa 2 by Devorah Sperber is hands-down the coolest thing in the museum!
Best Rodin Collection outside of NYC & LA
Best Rodin collection outside of NYC & LA
Check out "The Green Bridge II" by Lyonel Feininger - my favorite painting here.
The thinker has gone to California!
Have to eat at Iris!
1st Big Weekend (Duke U) - Sept 2 - Presbyterian Campus Ministry Movie Night. "The King's Speech" Meet at 8:00 pm at Duke East Campus Bus Stop.
I love visiting here whenever I'm in Raleigh. What a wonderful treasure!
If sitting on the lawn for a concert, get here early enough to stake out some space for your chair, and bring snacks!
The flowers and butterflies that form a jet in the atrium of the old museum building is among my favorite pieces of art ever.
Grab a glass of wine (or two) and enjoy Art in the Evening on Friday nights from 5:30-8:00 next to Iris. Live music!
The first publicly funded art museum in the US got an artful makeover in 2010. View over 30 Rodin sculptures, catch a traveling exhibit and explore their great outdoor spaces.
Go to the info desk at 1:30 for a docent lead tour, you might get me as your tourguide!
Tailgate for tailgating here
Decent museum. Too much security walking around, causes it to lose the relaxed atmosphere you would expect to have at an art museum. I do understand the need though. Not enough parking.
great art... extraordinary!?
Closed on Mondays
Someone go with me!
New part doesn't look like much from the outside but the atypical layout does wonders for displaying the art. Don't miss the bamboo outside!
Friday outdoor movies are awesome... beer and wire available
Gotta check out the trails around the property. You'll find hidden art and get a great exercise. The bridge across 440 is fun too.
Walk across the bridge connecting the Ncma and Meredith with cars on the beltline zooming below.
