The Contemporary Arts Museum is perhaps one of the most well-known museums of the city. The place is home to rolling contemporary art exhibitions from around the world. Located in the heart of the city in Montrose it is a part of the cultural core of the city.

Contemporary Artists from all over the world have been featured here in the past and many others will continue to be featured in the future. And since the institution does not collect art, you will always be able to see something new at the place. The CAMH building itself is quite a lovely sight and the art around it is also worth a see. The ever-changing displays are a real treat so if you are an art-lover or a culture seeker, do visit this remarkable place.

  • Staff is great . Depending on exhibit kids might be entertained. Very organized. It’s a great stop if you are going museum hopping. Very interesting museum. Getting to Learn about different cultures is always fun. I highly recommend we need more young people visiting museums. I tell you just drop it and you will be surprised on how much you learn

  • This museum is pretty small, but the exhibition I went to see had a lot. By that I mean there was a lot to read (even thick comic books) and several videos to watch. It took a while to get through everything despite it not being particularly large. I would say that it was a little too much to stand and read, and it would be nice to start a video when you approach it, rather than missing large portions before it restarts. We also took part in an ornament making event. They had a nice little room downstairs for it, and it was a good experience.

  • The museum was interesting. It's more for adult rather than children. However, if you do take the kids along they have interactive books. The kids can work through them as they learn about the art work. Probably will not return with my kids though.

  • Really depends on the exhibit. The staff is great. A lot of times they have fun art projects for kids. It is a good idea to check the exhibit with the staff before you bring in kids. Sometimes the exhibits are not appropriate for young children. Free to get in but donations accepted.

  • Went with a friend. It was free, and had such nice art. I would deffo go to the upstairs exhibit right now, very thought provoking. Downstairs was more classically beautiful, but still something out of the norm.
