I wasn't sure how it was categorized as a museum, as the only exhibit inside was a temporary exhibit of North Carolina artists and crafters. The concept was interesting, though- North Carolina artists were given the opportunity to 'drop off' one work of art within...More

... not a museum, they have one room open with only local/state artists of not particularly well known reputation. Mostly post modern paintings some crafts and photos and a handful photos. There are no famous NC's such as Blakeslee, Noland or Timberlake.

We went for breakfast (brunch) and the Photograph exhibits and were very pleased with both. A good variety on the menu for brunch (try the cucumber/vodka cocktail) and the photographs were excellent.

Nice, laid back museum. I have viewed some of my favorite exhibits here at the Cameron Art Museum. The Cameron family are grounded in Wilmington, NC and they are the backbone of this community. They have contributed so much to make New Hanover County better....More

We were enticed to visit the museum because of a photography exhibit currently on display (which was quite good). However this is a very small museum and had only one other majore exhibit on display. Not worth the admission price and it's a bit off...More
