It's free so hey, might as well! The exhibits change frequently but they are interesting to lok at. There is a massive gift shop which I would find useful if I needed something unique for someone.

The Nottingham Contemporary is a small gallery that has some interesting exhibits and a small gift shop.

Some friends and I explored inside on our first day in Nottingham city. So glad that it was free and we spent about an hour inside. There were many short films so we just picked a couple to see. Really nice installations.

It's not a huge gallery, but is easy to get around and allows a decent space for the art to be seen/heard. The current exhibition "From Ear To Eye" is extremely thought-provoking and highly recommended.

A great place to visit for a walk around the ever-changing galleries. Also has a very nice cafe downstairs selling drinks, snacks and small meals.

Free entry ! Then..let your imagination run riot interpreting the exhibits. Four galleries to wander round - some with visual and audio displays. Spot talks by guides talking about the exhibits.

the exhibitions at this place are always interesting and thought provoking. They are well laid out and easy to explore. We also had a drink in the coffee bar downstairs, where the service and drinks were great.

I like to visit art galleries and will give any style a go but this place was truly awful. There was nothing of interest in there at all and it was very sparse. There are only 4 galleries. I thought there was another floor as...More
