Fabulous, constantly changing exhibits. If you don't like one, go back in a couple months---something else will be there,

A great museum. Constantly changing and challenging exhibits by talented local and regional artists. Host location for Wilmingtons first Friday Art Loop. Free admission. Lunch and learn.

This cool little museum seems to fly under the radar ... unfamiliar & perhaps somewhat intimidating to the average area suburbanite, DCCA is a great showcase for area artists and the arts. Located near the riverfront, it hosts great 1st Fridays, fab second Wednesdays & killer shopping at their seasonal arts shows & truck shows. This is where you find... More

Consistently produces current plays and readings by quality, sometimes name actors, rendered in a professional manner. I have never witnessed an amateurish production. The area is indeed fortunate to have--and to attract--such talent. I never miss a season.

Thought the musuem was larger with more exhibits. We were only there for about 1/2 hour and that was really stretching it out. Do not park in any spaces that are not marked for the museum or you will get a warning (like we did) not to park in the lot beside the museum.

The center was recommended by at staff member at another area attraction. He had told us that we would either love or hate it. We choose to ck it out as we are interested in a variety of art forms. The museum is not large so you might be able to spend an hour or so. Great location as its... More

Great, small, FREE museum (those are my favorite kinds!) The various exhibits were colorful, wild, provocative, unusual, thought-provoking; yes, anything but boring. Listen to the other reviewers; leave the kids home! However, I do not consider anything I saw pornography; to me, it's ART.

Easy building to find with GPS with plenty of parking if you go on the weekend. We went on a Saturday afternoon and it was easy to walk around. There was a neat outdoor exhibit one story high made with colorful plastic milk crates. That right there says why modern art is exercise for the brain. It shows the uniqueness... More
