Both the food & service are excellent here. Fresh, & artistically prepared! Museum membership gains a 10% discount; also at the gift shop, where I did some Christmas shopping.

A MUST SEE! This little museum has a lovely little cafe for lunch or just drinks. You can reserve a table or just pop in when it’s slow. The museum has interesting art exhibits that you won’t find anywhere else. Also, music and classes, etc,...More

This is a small museum with only three exhibitions at present. But Hiroshige's 53 paintings were explained by a 12-page, 5 by 8-inch booklet; McKoy's bird sculptures were explained by an 8-page booklet; and Illumination 2018 was explained by a 12-page booklet. Composing and printing...More

This is a wonderful small museum with interesting, rotating exhibits. The permanent collection appears to be very small so if you're coming for the art, check the calendar first. The cafe has great food and lots of windows and light- a very pleasant sit down...More

Small galleries and thus shows, but always well done. Surprisingly great food for a gallery (call to check times & menu). Well chosen / curated gifts in gallery shop. Free parking.

I went the first weekend of the month and there was only one gallery open. The gift shop is disappointing. I thought there would be more resident artwork for sale. I was told I went at the wrong time. Will do again.

Whether you like paintings, drawings, photography, sculpture, mixed media or film, this place has it. Loved the variety and how it is all displayed. You drink it in one sip at a time, and there's truly something for everyone. Nice gift store and not crazy...More

The Cameron Art Museum is a local treasure. The exhibits are wonderful and sometimes challenging! The staff does a great job with new exhibits as well as the older works. The grounds are fun to stroll, too. Do have a snack or lunch at the...More

Exhibits change so no telling what will be there when someone visits but they are always engaging. My favorite are the type that interact with the view somehow with sounds or lights.
