My husband and I are members and visit every few months. The permanent collection is amazing, especially the 1916 building. There is something for everyone and it's always free to visit. You can also have a bite to eat at the cafe or Provedence restaurant, both very good. Beautiful place to spend an afternoon.

Love the new atrium. My daughter and I sipped a glass of wine and enjoyed a salad inside on a cold day with lots of light flooding in under the glass ceiling. Love the Picassos!

Most don't think of Cleveland as the cultural mecca of the US, however, this art museum really stands out. The building itself is beautiful and rich with culture. The displays and exhibits are great and what you'd expect in a major city. I had a friend in from out of town and was proud to display all Cleveland has to... More

It is a spectacular venue. Plan on 3-4 hours at that will just scratch the surface. You will need to return multiple times to see most of it.

This wondrous place combines an old structure (1913), with a new addition (2014), which creates a very large, glass covered, center plaza. The Art is centered in the Old and New buildings, centered around these two buildings. Access is very easy, especially using the various escalators. From old masters, to modern art, everything is well stocked, with top representations. An... More

I was impressed by the collection of this fine and free-to-the-public museum. Well worth a visit or two, since it is free you can pop in and out as you have time.
