My biggest pet peeve with art museums is a lot of space and few exhibits. The CAM Museum takes that to an extreme. Big building and less than a dozen exhibits when I was there. They used up a huge room for one exhibit a...More

I have never been big into the Arts and expression; however, my visit was enlightening, enjoyable, peaceful, appreciative and intriguing. I will definitely return but this time with many exchange students from across the globe.

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 like looking at art for the most part, but unfortunately I found this gallery to be a bit dull after a while. I think if you are an art enthusiast you will love it. They do offer traveling galleries quite often, so some of...More

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

$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
