Check online before going as museums close on different days. Some charge for admission to some exhibits and some also charge for parking. See me about where to go if you are not going to a museum on this local museum list: NC Museum of Art in Raleigh- best choice by far, and most of it is free! Wetherspoon Art Museum in Greensboro Ackland Art Museum in Chapel Hill Nasher Art Museum in Durham

****If 2 artworks by the same artist are not available for view at the museum, find another one to write about by the same artist online.
