This museum has very interesting exhibits. The museum is located near Grand Center, so it is a convenient place to spend about 30-60 minutes of free time when in the area. Plus, admission is free.

Free. Small. Exhibits change frequently. Irrelevant if you are a contemporary art buff or not, you will be hard pressed to find any real talent in the work exhibited here.

Regardless of the works exhibited at any given time, the Contemporary is a fabulous gallery space well worth the time to visit. Plus, it's free. Combine your visit to the Contemporary with one of more of the many other attractions in the Grand Center neighborhood.

This museum doesn't have a holding of art. Instead it presents work by important and emerging artists. The quality and presentation of their exhibitions, and of the artists that they present is very impressive.

The museum had several different artists' works on display. It was a nice sampler of what is currently being produced in the art world. And the Serra piece in the court yard is playful fun.

This museum offers opportunities for developing artistic outlets. It is located in a modern open space where the venue changes frequently. Although I would not return I would recommend it to people who are interested in interactive art forms.

I was not a big fan of contemporary art but this museum is changing my viewpoint. Rotating exhibits offer many opportunities to see something new and interesting, and even if you don't like it, it's interesting. Free admission to boot so you can't beat it....More

Contemporary art is not always 'my thing' but I am open minded and always willing to listen and learn. This space is fantastic and the curator brings in the best of the 'new'. It is inspiring if you allow it to be.

If this place hadn't been free admission when we went, I would have been disappointed by the size. We were staying at the Grand Center Inn a block away, so we decided to walk over to the Contemporary Art Museum. I tend to have difficulties...More
