North Carolina Museum Of Art, Raleigh Reviews

  • Nice regional art museum with great master works from antiquity to modern. We went on a chilly cold day and lots of traffic inside the museum did not prevent us from enjoying our trip. My sister and I are both art teachers who teach elementary through high school and we both feel that all ages could appreciate this museum. The Greek and Egyptian collections are pretty complete for a regional museum. All (most) of the textbook impressionist masters are there and there is a a great collection of printing plates. Love to see families sprawled on the floor with sketchbooks in tow. Students are there too with their kits appreciating the techniques of acclaimed painters and sculptors. A great long afternoon!

  • For a NC museum it does not get any better. The rotating exhibits are top notch and the summer movies are in a family friendly environment. The renovations to the outdoor trails were much needed and do not disappoint. Even in the winter you will find the vast outdoor spaces filled with people, yet can also find places to be by yourself. Raleigh would do well to take lessons in their bid to redo Dix.

  • An interesting mix, knowledgeable and personable docents, and it was free! We had planned on just walking through on our own, but were told that a tour was about to start, so we joined it. I'm glad we did - we were taken through several very different exhibits and were given enough information that we could return to the ones that interested us and do more than just look at them. I just wish the gift shop offered a selection of prints, or maybe more postcards showing some of the collection. Will definitely return the next time we are in Raleigh!

  • My wife and I visited the museum on a Friday night when they were open late, until 9pm. The level of art on display was both new modern and old historic and highly impressive. Considering the museum is open to the public with no admission fee, we could not have been more impressed. We had read that most spend 2 hours in the museum, however the amount of art and the information provided for each artifact kept us for much more that the average and still we could not finish with the amount of detail we enjoy. We will be returning to continue our journey through the exibits.

  • We visit several times a year to see what's new and always find something. Nice wide open galleries and some interesting work. An enjoyable few hours.
