My wife and I were attending a charity auction and as she is dependent on the use of an electric scooter, I had inquired about the availability of disabled car parking and misunderstood that this is on the road and not the flat roof which is at the level of the main entrance. Fortunately a receptionist saw me parking and... More

I am not an expert in modern art. However I was expecting unusual art however this was art with a twist using your imagination and sense of sound. It was phenomenal. I am still trying to take it in. It was unusual and really had an affect on ones emotions. Worthwhile he experience for a new adventure in to art.

I love going to the Nottingham Contemporary art gallery. It is such a great place I can't believe I used to walk past this place and miss out on what was going on inside. I like the huge variety of art the is available; paintings, sculptures, audio or a different visual medium. The gallery has 3 rooms with the art... More

I have visited several times sometimes I enjoy it and sometimes I don't - but that is the fun or not of it but as it is free it does not matter Generally my kids who both enjoy doing art do not like looking at it. However, the best part is the Cafe Couture down stairs.

An extraordinary artistic sense would be required should you are going to visit the museum. Before taking a deep thought, you may not be able to understand the meaning behind each display.

Whether or not you enjoy your visit will, of course, depend largely on the current exhibition, but this is a fantastic gallery. The spaces inside are quietly understated whilst outside the concrete facade is softened by delicate references to the lace industry. It also has a good shop and a very stylish cafe which combine to boost the metropolitan feel... More

Even for those who don't normally like art the exhibitions are something to talk, ponder and wonder about. The cafe is excellent and a great meeting place. They also have craft sessions and musicians on certain dates

After getting used to it and it starting to get weathered i still think it is the ugliest building in Nottingham. However it has a publicly accessible toilet so is quite handy if you are taken short.
