Having spare time I thought I would go here to see the Chatsworth exhibition only to be told by THREE receptionists that they were closed on a Monday. Not only did this not go down well with me ( as it is poorly listed on the web sight) but also with two groups of foreign visitors. Why on earth we... More

This was my first visit, but my artist daughter's third. The staff are very friendly and knowledgeable and the exhibit that we saw was based around Chatsworth. It is a little on the small side but ideal for smaller children for that very reason. My daughter would like it to be bigger and more varied but enjoyed the shop with... More

Strange place but many be that's because I'm not really into art. On the lower floor there is a great eating place, the food was excellent. There is even a terrace area to sit out on, weather permitting They have events on for the kids which including making things. It's free to visit.

A perfect to spend a few hours expanding your mind! When we attended, the exhibit's on display were well laid out and staff were friendly and helpful. Its worth having a look on the web site first to see whats going on at the gallery before your visit. Looking forward to me next trip!

The Nottingham Contemporary is an excellent addition to the cultural life of Nottingham, and often has some interesting exhibitions going on. It's limited in terms of its floor space though, so I wouldn't budget a vast amount of time to visit it. It's got a bar as well which is pretty nice, not cheap though - a pint with set... More

We booked "The Space" function room for our work Christmas Party at the Nottingham Contemporary. From start to finish Tamily and the team were absolutely fantastic and so incredibly accommodating. We went for a "night at the movies" fancy dress theme. We used the projection facilities which were just perfect for what we wanted and is a great way of... More

Loved this gallery, it looked quite small as we approached from just a short walk from the centre, but it went on and on. Very spacious, some great modern art and was themed amazingly well with the images, film and even books connected to it

We are very fortunate in Nottingham to have such an innovative gallery, and it's FREE! Well laid-out displays of contemporary art in a wide range of media. The café is good too!

It's a great space but the art was very drab. A lot of audio requiring headphones and a few large pieces of note. Would rather they had a more traditional art gallery.
