An interesting venue hosting rubbish?

This is easy to find and free to enter so there is no excuse not to visit. Large galleries host various exhibitions but the current one was a bit rubbish.....literally. This was... read more

We went a couple of weeks ago and we were fascinated seeing the different interpretations of the views of politics and so on... every expression was very unique and made you wonder and think- better to go solo because friends can distract you a bit.

Once again we had a lovely afternoon at the gallery with the children (5 and 7). The adventure pack (also free) that we collected on the way in kept their interest around the exhibits and then they had a really wonderful time at the children's activity space. The people leading the activities were obviously enjoying them and were friendly and... More

This was the first visit for my 13 year old grand daughter. I told her to be open minded and honest and tell me what she thought. She said it... More

A good place to go solo . After viewing the art I found a truly cosy room where there are hundreds of books to read . I sat and just went on my iPad for a bit . The cafe and bar was rather nice and also cute souvenir gifts to buy .

we went today and had a wonderful morning - the exhibitions (especially the paper one is amazing). Children loved the construction activity and there was so much to do.Would thoroughly recommend this place for a trip in the holodays - its free and good fun!.

The museum its self is very good and interesting and have lots events on for children. But would not reccomend the restaurant as it is very pricy and expensive to eat here.

The building itself is a beauty, situated in the lace market, the surfaces of the building have a beautiful lace design imprinted. The Contemporary offers free admittance to travelling contemporary art shows as well as a great evening music scene with a cafe situated in the basement. Get on the mailing list to RSVP to new openings and often a... More

We love the contemporary and visit regularly especially during school holidays. My boys enjoy looking around the displays which are frequently changed and quite often interactive. The best part for families are the activities in the basement. We have often spent an hour there doing crafts or other arty tasks. Lovely and helpful staff!

We're so lucky to have this super facility in Nottingham. Love or hate the exterior container ship design, art is here for everyone to enjoy.
