Road works and traffic around The University area was a problem, but after navigating the various diversions we got to a large car park within The University grounds. Good parking with easy access to the museum. The atrium is vast... More

We come here often because admission is free except for special exhibits. It's so big, I don't know how long it would take to see everything. They own a lot of classic art, such as Monet's Water Lilies. Good cafeteria with interesting food (they have a Tandoori oven) and good coffee, mocha, etc. In the past, cafeteria staff seemed cranky,... More

Beautiful art museum. Easy to maneuver throughout the spacious exhibit areas with plenty of staff available for questions. This is a free art museum filled with wonderful exhibits.

This is a great museum to walk around and spend a few hours. The new atrium is gorgeous. So many great pieces of art. The armour court is a must-see as well.

One of the best art museums in the country. Very broad collection with state of the art displays and electronic assists for additional information on most pieces. Well staffed with helpful people. More than you can see in a day.

Great museum near the Cleveland Clinic. I visited this museum about 20 years ago and didn't remember much, other than that it was not near downtown Cleveland and that it had a large sculpture collection. For this visit I was impressed with how much has changed - all for the better. There is a new modern building separated from the... More

So amazing that this beautiful building is located in Cleveland. Just a short drive or bus ride from the city centre. You can find works dating from the ancient Greeks, to suits of armors, to impressionism and more. They have a statue of The Thinker in the back with a gorgeous water fountain. We did a tour with Mike the... More
