North Carolina Museum of Art

Groups can explore a diversity of western art at this museum. The collection has major holdings in European painting, from the Renaissance to the 19th century; American art; modern painting; Egyptian art; Greek and Roman sculpture and vase painting; and international contemporary art. Other works include African and Oceanic art, and Jewish ceremonial objects. As campers tour the galleries, they might search for animals in artwork, follow the history of American art, or learn how artists depict nature in their paintings. Tours for older learners might focus on mathematics in art (scale, symmetry, and perspective), art and the humanities, or French impressionist art.
