Fodor's Review

Formerly known as the St. John's Museum of Art, the Cameron, 4 miles south of downtown, is dedicated to the fine arts and crafts of North Carolina. An ambitious changing exhibition schedule of historical and contemporary significance, plus a plethora of public educational programs keep this museum on the cusp of capacity and engagement. The museum's permanent collection, contained in a sleek 40,000-square-foot facility, includes originals by Mary Cassatt and folk artist Clyde Jones. A clay studio supervised by resident artist Hiroshi Sueyoshi qualifies as a living treasure. On the 10-acre grounds are restored Confederate defense mounds built during a battle in the waning days of the Civil War. The museum's Café Johnnie—a hotspot for locals—focuses on local foods and Southern recipes with a modern twist. Bring your wallet to the gift shop, a veritable temptation factory. Jazz@ The CAM is a series of concerts (extra cost) on the first Thursday of the month, September through April.
