The NCMA has something for everyone! In addition to its wonderful collection of art, the museum hosts several special events and programs throughout the summer. After spending some time in the galleries, I highly recommend taking a walk around the beautiful Museum Park where you can check out more than a dozen works of art. Afterwards, hang out for one of NCMA’s outdoor summer films or an outdoor concert in the amphitheatre. Admission to the Museum’s permanent collection and Museum Park is free, however, there is a charge for some special exhibitions and programs, such as concerts, films, classes, and performances.
