We're not a couple who are particularly in to art, but visited out of interest as we were in the area anyway. It is OK, but not really 'us'. Can see why those who are more in to the area may enjoy it, though.

The gallery has different exhibitions on and they are always free and worth a look. However we normally head in for the cafe - great breakfasts and lunches, nice salad options usually, and good coffee. The gift shop is also really interesting with some different things that you might not find elsewhere. They also have live music events in the... More

Then give this place a visit. Can be hit and miss with who they have on show at the time but it's always interesting. Have been here for an evening 'first look' event. Don't expect to be served at the bar in a timely fashion if it's busy. 40 minutes it took to get 2 beers. Can't complain, it was... More

Took a little finding, and I'm glad it was free of charge. Although cafe should have been open, refused to serve us as they were preparing for a band/event.

Lovely environment but didn't feel a lot of attention to detail in cafe area. Menu was limited today but food was relatively tasty.

Not an artist myself but Nottingham Contemporary offers interesting (and free) displays of art time and time again. Some displays are better than others, and the museum is small, but the galleries change every couple of months and the staff are knowledgable on the art on display. There's also a reading room and a gift shop, and the gallery is... More

How this edifice can actually be called an 'attraction' is beyond me. The locals maintain the building was adapted from architectural plans for a modern cattle shed (?) Dunno, could be true... Contrived, pretentious and staffed (generally) by pseudolectuals who spend more time on their phone texting than they do attending to what few visitors do walk through the door.... More

We went at the start of the school holidays and took part in the activities, it was great for my four year old who really enjoyed making and decorating a cut out of himself. The staff were great with children, it was bright and interesting. The whole place was clean and light. Downside was nothing really to occupy a toddler... More

3 galleries to walk around.....discuss with your partner about what is art and what isn't.....and then when you can't agree, go and sit on the lower floor and patio area to have a lovely fresh pot of tea, glass of wine or beer.....a very chilled place to while away the odd hour. Great gift shop, relaxed feel, free entry....!!
