I thoroughly enjoyed the many variations of blown glass. The artwork was good. Wander around or take the tour. Small cafeteria. Skip the outside walk, it's barely a trail with nothing to see on the part I walked.

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.

A nice museum with wonderful exhibition space. The museum also hosts a fantastic restaurant which is well worth a 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

I think the museum will be a better place to ask your question.
