Come on this fun tour to learn all about downtown Raleigh's cool murals and public art!

About this Event

Due to COVID-19, face coverings are now REQUIRED to be worn for the duration of the tour. Anyone who does not comply with this requirement will be asked to leave.

Although tours remain pay-what-you-want, advance registration is REQUIRED. If you do not sign up through Eventbrite for a spot on the tour, you will not be allowed to participate. The number of customers on each tour is now limited due to COVID-19. Thank you for your understanding!

This tour is pay-what-you-want -- if you enjoy the tour, please compensate your guide appropriately! CASH ONLY please! Usually, the guide receives $15 to $20 per adult, but you are free to give more or less than that, depending on how you feel about your tour. As you can imagine, the tour guide has to work hard to earn your appreciation!

This cool downtown walking tour takes you off the beaten path and shows you some of Raleigh’s best and most vibrant large scale art works!  The main focus of the tour is on Raleigh’s creative murals, but we will also see and learn about some other cool public art, including the statue of our city’s namesake.  Learn about the artists behind our murals and discover what inspired some of this fabulous art.  Be sure to bring your camera so that you don’t miss out on all the great photo opportunities!

If you have an Android phone that is compatible with an app called Abstratcted Motion, you will be able to use the app on the tour if you are interested in downloading it ahead of time!  The app is not available for the iPhone.

PLEASE NOTE:  This tour lasts approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes, but may be slightly shorter depending on the size and speed of the group.  We will start at the Wake County Justice Center, 300 S. Salisbury St, outside the entrance that is closest to the corner of Salisbury and Martin Sts.  The tour will end a half block away from the starting point.  There will not be any restroom breaks or stops for food/drinks.

Please plan your parking accordingly.  Free street parking is available on weekends.  The closest parking deck is the Wake County parking deck, located at 216 W. Cabarrus St., on the corners of Davie, McDowell and Cabarrus streets.   Vehicular entrances are located on Cabarrus and Davie streets.
