The building contains more art displays, than history-related displays. There are several floors you can view and access.

I would have liked a little more history and a little less art. I'm sure others would like the reverse. It was well set up for families.

I liked the variety. Not all the exhibitions were to my liking but there was enough variety for me to find things that I did like and linger there.

This museum was just the right size. Not super busy and easy to find. You can walk it in an hour, but if you take your time expect 2-3 hours. The art exhibits were great and there is a docent there to answer questions. Down stairs they have hands on exhibits for children. Definetly worth the trip. Free admission, donations... More

I love art and antiques and history and old weaponry. Hearing my very specific adorations, the Columbus Museum apparently put its glorious self together for my benefit. At least, that's how it feels. I spent a brief afternoon at the Columbus Museum and have been reprimanding myself for days now due to my lack of time there. Two afternoons--two afternoons... More

The museum itself was very nice but we didn't get to see a lot of it since we were there for a wedding.
