Art museums

Art Museum
“The North Carolina Museum of Art in Raleigh serves the people of North Carolina and all visitors as a top destination for compelling encounters with art, inside and out. A stunning permanent collection, and high-profile traveling exhibitions come through here. The sculpture garden is vast and modern. If you are lucky enough to be here in summer, their summer music series is contemporary, bustling, and the setting is gorgeous. Bring a picnic. If you plan to imbibe, buy your alcohol there, they don’t let you haul it in. ”

“Located on NCSU's Centennial Campus & known as the library of the future. Worth stopping by to check out the architecture, creative use of space, use of technology, and incredible collection of modern chairs. Amazing views of the sunset!”
