The newly remolded museum is a treasure. From antiquity to the present, the most famous artists work is on display. Professionally and style time line laid out. Electronic Voice players tell you about most of the works. Take time to appreciate talent. We tagged along with a group who had a specialist discussing various works.

We felt like we had to come to this museum- after all, it's free! We enjoyed all of the artwork, especially the armor exhibit. It's very small, maybe an hour and a half visit at most.

Our Museum has such a wonderful eclectic collection, plus a beautiful setting, that everyone should see it! Hopefully, they will make tours here, for those that attend the upcoming political convention, as it is one of the best attractions that Cleveland has to offer.

So I went here to fulfill some requirements in a photography class I was taking. This was a great museum. There was actually a ton going on around it, too, that we (my aunt and I) didn't even know was going on around us. Shame, because some of it looked fabulous. Like a sidewalk chalk festival of some sort. Plus... More

Enjoyed this without the crowd on a Friday night. Went after dinner and enjoyed a mostly empty, first-class museum. Beautiful.

Have lived in the Cleveland area for over 30 yrs. This is the one place that I always recommend that you visit if you come to Cleveland. It is truly a world class museum, and it has a very nice assortment of artwork with collections of primitive masks, Egyptian relics, armor, etc. This museum is "just the right size". It... More

Museum collection is too big to see everything in one visit. We enjoyed the Impressionist paintings in the new contemporary art wing, as well as the Baroque paintings. If driving, bring quarters for the parking meter. We were able to find street parking on a weekday in April.

The Cleveland Museum of Art is a place you MUST VISIT if you find yourself in Cleveland. If even if you are not a fan of art/art museums, you can't but help appreciate the architecture of this beautiful building. The grounds and surrounding area are also magnificent. I really enjoyed seeing Rodin's "The Thinker" on the south side of the... More
