Scoring a museum is highly subjective so please bear with mine. I find it difficult to understand contemporary art, and was not impressed by the collection at display on feminism and protest..What else can one say about a museum? It's a small museum, they have...More

Not for the faint hearted. This is for women who not only appreciate those who have gone before in challenging mass thought but, for those who can think into the future for themselves and future movements.Stimulating and invigorating exhibition.

The Contemporary is a great place to see art from around the world. I recently saw the Still I Rise exhibition and found it education and thought provoking.

Visited today with my two young children. We're not particularly 'arty' but they enjoy a gallery. It was a flying visit but one we enjoyed. The current exhibition is really inventive, with walls of t-shirts and hammocks made of jeans, interspersed with visual projections and...More

This is quite a small contemporary gallery in the brutalist style in the historic part of town. Has a nice shop and cafe but the exhibition today wasn’t really my thing! Will go back and see other stuff I’m sure!

This is a cool addition to the Lace Market area of Nottingham, offering ever changing interactive art displays which are completely free to the public, along with live music, drinks and food in the night times especially over the weekends. Worth a visit
