We've been going to the NDMOA for years, sometimes for an event, sometimes for an exhibition. Thomas McNemar's extensive collection of West African art is simply amazing.

Nice museum, Really enjoyed the exhibits. The multiple collections of NY artist are fascinating. The university must provide better access to parking for visitors. The cafe serves a lovely lunch so a stay could easily be two to three hours.
