The fact that this world-renowned museum does not charge admission is crazy. Such a gorgeous place to visit and escape for the day!

Okay, parking is about $12 but the art is wonderful and admission to the museum is free. The staff are so friendly and helpful. The food in the cafe is excellent. What a wonderful collection. Especially liked the Impressionists and Picasso. Don't miss this if you are in Cleveland.

I am not a big Art Fan but took the 15 min bus ride from downtown to the Museum. It is free but I paid extra $15.00 to see the special Yoga exhibition. Was very boring to me. But the rest of the museum was well worth the visit. The area around the Museum is very scenic and makes for... More

As we all know, this is truly one of the national gems of fine art. A beautiful new addition to the original museum and a true world-class collection. Nice cafe and restaurant with unique tasty food, but very crowded on the day we visited.

This is a beautiful museum, with multiple galleries filled with winding halls. As you roam through each gallery you will be surprised at what is just around the next corner, from Egyptian artifacts to tapestries to ceramics. We were not able to see it all, again but I don't feel bad because it's free. Parking in the attached garage can... More

There is not much insight that I have to offer. All I know is that it was free and had tons of beautiful art. I talked to a few of the people there and they answered every question I had. They were all very knowledgeable. I was in town for a conference, but snuck out to come here, and I... More

The CMA is a wonderful museum that has a new area since the last time we visited many years ago. Because of the endowment there is no admission fee and one could spend all day viewing just the main exhibits. We went with 3 of our grandchildren and they especially enjoyed the Egyptian sections.

We spent a most amazing afternoon at this museum. Entrance is free ! We visited the "Yoga: The art of transformation" exhibition- and even for an Indian, it was quite illuminating. We had a very knowledgeable tour guide. The special exhibitions have a nominal entrance fee- I imaging to cover the cost of obtaining displays on loan, etc.,
