The North Carolina Museum of Art, Raleigh

A wealth of visual art in addition to craft awaits visitors to North Carolina’s many superb art museums. In every region of the state, treasures abound, illuminating the aesthetic sensibilities of bygone eras and civilizations and offering perspectives on modern life through the art of our own time.
