“A must visit when in Raleigh or if you live in Raleigh”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

I have been to the Museum of Art for several events. It is a must for me. The Iris cafe is a great spot for lunch, just be sure and make reservations. All of the exhibits are above first class.

“Great food too, Who knew?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

My family went to celebrate my Aunt's 82nd birthday and the food was outstanding. The service was exceptional and a good time was had by all. Who knew that a museum would have such fine fare.

“A Must See - great exhibits”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

Extraordinary light, a treasure trove of exhibits for every taste, including classical, modern, special concerts, films, beautiful landscaping, garden sculpture and surrounding hilly terrain. Also great restaurant with amazing vine wrapped walls.

“Could easily spend an entire day here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

The NCMoA recently transitioned into a playground of the mind and body. The indoor museum is very large, expectantly over-pretentious, yet ultimately relaxing.

The outdoor park surrounding the museum is the real crown gem though. Miles of connecting trails to city greenways, outdoor art sculptures, large expanses of grass to picnic/nap on, and an amphitheater for live shows to boot!
