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.
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.
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.
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.
I can now Remove from my bucket list. :)
Friday outdoor movies are awesome... beer and wire available
Best Rodin Collection outside of NYC & LA
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!
I love visiting here whenever I'm in Raleigh. What a wonderful treasure!
Closed on Mondays
The outdoor movies in the summer are great! You can bring food and sealed beverages but not alcohol, although you can purchase wine and beer on site.

Have to eat at Iris!
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!
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!?
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
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!
Check out "The Green Bridge II" by Lyonel Feininger - my favorite painting here.
The thinker has gone to California!
Someone go with me!
