I went to the art museum after I did the Natural history museum. Wasn't sure what to expect. Was wanting to see where they had used it in the Captain America The Winter Soldier movie. Came for a picture and left with culture.

This was the second te I have visited this month. It is a wonderful art museum with diversified art as well as artifacts. Since it's renovation, it has opened with a wonderful restaurant and a cafe next door. There is a lovely atrium to sit and there are many events throughout the year. Their temporary exhibits are often one if... More

Museum has a terrific Chinese and Indian art section, that's one of the best I've seen. I'm sure the Chinese are envious with the museum's collection of $100k+ vases! One of the best Buddha sculpture collections I've seen outside of Tibet. Very worthwhile, it's big, give yourself some time. Free admission (Ohio is a leader in learning for all income... More

The Cleveland Museum of Art is like no other. It is located in the cross roads of the city offering an artistic experience for all ages. It brings times and places from around the world.....waiting to be viewed and learned. With the help of technology...no guide is needed for explanations. You can spend a short time or the day. There... More

This museum is such a fantastic gem. The renovations they did to improve the building is wonderful. There are so many great pieces of art. Not great for young kids, but since it doesn't cost to get in, it's worth taking a short trip. The kids room they added was fun. My two kids loved the activities.

There are larger, more comprehensive museums, obviously. However, Cleveland's is one of the most well-rounded and broadly representative collections in the US. AND most of it, including the awesome modern rooms are free! Come and check out the new rear atrium. A wonderful piece of architecture in and of itself. If you visit CLE, it's a must visit. Trust me.

If you are an art lover.... this museum is great! However, if you have a short attention span then it can drag out. The fist 2 hours were great but then I was done. I admit it was me - so just saying for those with limited art knowledge. It may be free to get in, but parking was $8....... More

The Cleveland Museum of Art is a must see for every local or visitor to Cleveland. There have been many times I take my three teenage kids there on a rainy day when we are looking for some family time. We always seem to discover something new when visiting. The famous paintings and masterpieces are a real gem for our... More

They have a new app to download to guide you through the collection and to provide additional audio information about selected works. Artlens - the app - can be downloaded to a smart phone and their wi-fi. Just point the camera in the phone at the photo and up pops the information! This museum has the third largest endowment of...
