Exhibits change so no telling what will be there when someone visits but they are always engaging. My favorite are the type that interact with the view somehow with sounds or lights.

... not a museum, they have one room open with only local/state artists of not particularly well known reputation. Mostly post modern paintings some crafts and photos and a handful photos. There are no famous NC's such as Blakeslee, Noland or Timberlake.

We went for breakfast (brunch) and the Photograph exhibits and were very pleased with both. A good variety on the menu for brunch (try the cucumber/vodka cocktail) and the photographs were excellent.

Nice, laid back museum. I have viewed some of my favorite exhibits here at the Cameron Art Museum. The Cameron family are grounded in Wilmington, NC and they are the backbone of this community. They have contributed so much to make New Hanover County better....More
