If you want to see some art and get good exercise, the Raleigh art trail (behind the art museum) is the place to go. The trails go through an open field (along with woodland trails, trails along creeks, and a mixture of paved and natural trails) and depending on the time of year you will also see some beautiful flowers blooming. It offers woodland. On some trails you will encounter steep hills but there are others to choose from that are much flatter. You will probably see some people that are not wearing masks or socially distancing but it's very easy to avoid them.

We only saw the free collection but it was really nice and a good size (not overwhelming.) The grounds were pretty as well; busier than the inside but a beautiful day and a common place for locals to "play." Would definitely recommend a visit if in the area.

The staff is very rude and unprofessional! If you do not want to be harassed or targeted for any wrong move you make do not waste your time coming. I simply stepped in the wrong place (the exhibit was taped off but hard to see as it was so dark in the museum) and chastised and embarrassed in front of others.

We visited on an October "Members Only" Thursday evening. The curation has definitely improved. We were happy to see the changes in the curation of the collection in the newer main building, especially in the juxtaposition of art from different eras, styles, and countries, and the moving of a lot of more contemporary art to the main building. We were also impressed with the many focus groupings in the older exhibition building. We loved the way they are managing the pandemic with one-way arrows to guide you through the collections, face mask requirement, timed entry, and large spaces with no seating.

First visit since prior to Covid and it was perfect! There are several new exhibits to view and it is easy to maneuver safely through them all. The guards are always pleasant and helpful with lots of information regarding the exhibits. I particularly enjoyed Good as Gold - showing Senegalese women’s jewelry and the story behind these influential ladies of the Senegal area of Africa. Also not to miss is the Christopher Holt frescoe exhibit of his wall painting in Asheville - very impressive. The exhibit of NC contemporary artists is also worthwhile. Some very creative artists on view. Don’t be concerned about visiting the museum - you will love it and feel safe!
