On the Road at the Museum Park at the NC Museum of Art

Hello everyone! Today we are On the Road over at the North Carolina Museum of Art! This museum is located at 2110 Blue Ridge Road in Raleigh, and features both the museum as well as the Museum Park. The hours for the museum itself are Tuesday – Thursday, 10AM – 5PM, Friday 10AM – 9PM, and Saturday and Sunday 10AM – 5PM. The museum is generally closed on Monday except for certain times when special events are going on. The Museum Park, though, is open daily from dawn to dusk, and today, that’s what we are going to focus on.
Museum Park features walking trails, connections to the Greenway system of trails, and dispersed throughout are various works of art that add to the landscape. Here are some of my favorites from today’s visit!
