This is truly a must-see place. The outside park and lake are delightful, and then you walk in and are amazed!!! Make sure to take the docent tours, each one is different. These are volunteers who absolutely LOVE what they do. Make sure to download the ARTLENS app on your smartphone before you go because it takes some time. This... More

We only spent a few hours, but we were truly impressed with the wide range of artists and exhibits. Even more enjoyable was the spacing of the exhibits, widely dispersed throughout expansive spaces so that you never felt cramped. The best part... It's free. Compared to $30 for the New York MET, this is a better choice!

This is a solid American museum, with all the must-have impressionist and modern exhibits. The physical plant is excellent, the docents are well read and attentive, at least the ones I talked to. Great place to spend a day. There were a couple weddings that day, adorable.

You will need more than one day to take a decent look at this museum. Don't forget to take your headphones and download their app (artlens).

The Art Institute in Chicago is my benchmark but this facility comes close. Loved watching the restoration of a lost Caravaggio, turned a corner & came face to face with a Botticelli. Really impressive! Wish we had more time. Only downside is location is about a $20 cab ride from downtown so round trip is a bit pricey.

We only had a limited time to visit, but were really impressed by several things. Currently, in the Focus Gallery, an Art Conservationist is working on a Carravagio from 1604, and can be viewed working on the painting. The exhibit also explains how technology has been used to determine what needs to be done. In addition, there is a wonderful... More

I love going to the Museum of Art. if you go on Wednesdays in the summer, you have a free concert and chance to interact with some very cool people of Cleveland. kids of all ages. don't forget to pack a chair and your dancing shoes. The museum is top notched and the restaurant is quite gourmet.

We were in Cleveland for a weekend, and the Cleveland Museum of Art was at the top of our list of sights to see. We were not disappointed. What a treasure the city has in this museum. It's absolutely amazing that the museum is free. We visit museums of all kinds when we travel, and this is one of the... More

Nice free museum! Great layout and was easy to navigate. Spoke with a few employees and they were all incredibly friendly and helpful in directing us to exhibits that would be of interest to us.
