Art Museum
“The North Carolina Museum of Art has more than a dozen galleries holding works from around the world and a variety of art types. Originally starting with 139 works from Europe and America, the museum has grown to include African, Egyptian and Jewish works of art while also expanding European and ancient American holdings. With 30 added Rodin sculptures, the NCMA leads the holdings of this artist’s work in the southeastern United States. Other galleries hold everything from Renaissance paintings to contemporary photography. Exhibitions also run at the museum for several months at a time for guests to visit. Outside the museum is the 164-acre Ann and Jim Goodnight Museum Park, recently expanded and featuring monumental public art installations inspired by the natural world and preservation of landscapes, including the Gyre rings, Cloud Chamber for the Trees and Sky and Askew, as well as several recreational activities, picnic spots, and wooded trails. Tours are given daily if you or a group would like to learn more about the collections. When it’s time for lunch, you can stop by the Iris restaurant located inside the museum, specializing in contemporary American cuisine in a modern setting. (Also open for dinner!

American Restaurant
“Cozy place for Classic Brunch with Made for the day menu (with that date on menu). One page menu always gave me hard time to pick one, since ALL sounds so good. Relaxing Live acoustics music might make you regret if you come out in basketball shorts and winkled tshirt. So, it is nice to be clasic, looked classic and dressed classic on Sunday Morning, once in awhile, regardless of how much alchol you consumed on the previous night. Their fresh Coffee and OJ will help you sobered. ”
