The Cameron Art Museum is definately a positive for the Wilmington Community. It's collection, which is variable, is interesting, but don't expect MOMA. The program series and educational programs are impressive as is their resturant.

This was an unexpected pleasure. The museum and its grounds are beautiful. There were three special exhibits, each beautifully curated and displayed. The shop had beautiful things by many North Carolina artists. And the staff were helpful, pleasant, informative. An altogether great visit.

What the museum lacks in size, they make up for by changing the exhibits to keep it fresh that is why a review will only be for that exhibit or that event. They also host tons of local events and things for members. They are...More
