We spent most of our time on the first floor exploring the early Greek and Christian dawn art. We spent so much time there that we didn't spend to much time in rest of museum. Will return. I don't usually enjoy contemporary art but really enjoyed it here.

Our visit was enhanced by volunteer docent tour led by Mike Kaplan, very well presented. We enjoyed the food at Provenance Cafe and will be back for the Impressionism Exhibit beginning in October, 2015.

This place has a great architecture and is worth the visit just to see the place from outside and inside. If you're an art fan you will loved this place and can spend the whole day here. If you're not in to art, remember, the entrance is free, so you should give yourself a chance.

Visiting the Cleveland Museum of Art was one of our primary reasons for visiting the city. We intentionally planned our visit for the bulk of the day on a Friday when the museum is open until 9PM because we didn't want to feel rushed. We began by parking in the museum lot rather than take our chances parking on the... More

I have been to many museums and this one is world class. Great collections beautifully presented. The modern wing if artfully and thoughtfully integrated with the original building- Worth a trip itself. Amazing collection. Do not miss. Thank you CMA and OH taxpayers for an amazing free museum.

Wow, what a place to visit. We truly enjoyed the vast amount of art. It was laid out beautifully and easy to follow. The staff was always friendly and willing to help. Not a place for travelers with very small children. A few interactive exhibits. We had limited time but definitely want to return for a second look. Entry was... More

Don't get me wrong--this was a marvelous institution in 1960--but oh my goodness how the renovations and new structures make a difference! Extended hours until 9:00 pm on Wednesdays meant that we'd have time to visit while in town for an appt at the Cleveland Clinic. We headed over, found a parking space in the garage ($10 and entirely worth... More

I hadn't been to the museum of art for years, but went several months ago and I was very impressed. I am no art expert, but the exhibits are beautiful and varied and there has to be something to interest almost everyone. the grounds are beautiful as well and its all free unless you want to see an special exhibit...

We only had an hour to visit but it was a very nice museum. Very friendly staff. Too bad we only could see one building.
