Last weekend we went to NCMA for a brief respite from the heat, and of course, added bonus of beautifully curated rooms to wander through. The museum is free, so if you haven't gotten a chance to check it out, you really should. The rooms are organized by century, ranging from modern pieces to ancient African art. We especially love the American collection. The staff is quite helpful - one of the security guards saw us taking photos & pointed out some interesting views and chatted away. I won't of my favorite things is the twig installation on the wall of the museum restaurant. Does that make me uncultured?! It's so interesting & fun. And we might have spent a generous portion of time in the gift shop. It has so many trinkets & local wares that we were both coveting. Perfect for birthday presents or stocking stuffers.
If you're of stronger constitution than we, and are willing to brave the August heat, you can also take the walking paths through the outdoor part of the museum. We prefer that portion in the fall & spring, but there are several really neat things on the paths (including a cloud room that looks like a hobbit house!).
