I've seen pictures online of some of the exhibits and the art museum looked like something I would enjoy so we decided to make a trip to Raleigh to see it. On our visit it was basically empty with only some small art on the...More

There are only 3 exhibits on, but I liked them all. It was a good air conditioned stop on a hot day. $5 admission.

There was one mural, one painting, and two small sculptures for the admission price of $5. I asked the receptionist to be sure if there wasn't anything else, and she assured me that any other exhibits had closed a week or two before.

I visited here with a group on a Friday afternoon. There were about a dozen patrons including us. Admission was free, although they accept donations. The main exhibit up at the time was the Camstellation, an exhibit of hundreds of 2D work by local artists....More

Visited the Contemporary Art Museum in Raleigh on a Friday; the first Friday of the month is free. There were two exhibits, one a photography series by Maria Guiterrez (enchanting odd mix with a live model with mannequins) and the Horse & Buggy Press. Original...More

$5 to get it -- not bad until you realize the museum is only open another half an hour and the staff omitted that information. It was fine again, once I realized everything could be viewed in 15-20 minutes. The whole time I was there,...More

This museum is one you have to go to and "experience it first hand" to actually understand it, it's just one of those "ART museums" !! When I say "First Friday", is Electric, I mean, totally awesome! First, to all, First Friday is FREE, so...More

Great location in downtown Raleigh, with wonderful rotating exhibits. The floor plan is open and nice. CAM also partners with local schools for both exhibits and Docents.
