I love going to the cma, especially on Sunday's when admission is free. However with all the construction that's going on right now it made it difficult to find parking and the correct entrance. We weren't even able to go to certain parts of the museum. I'm hoping to go again next week after the lego craze to see if... More

The Lego exhibit was AWESOME! The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. We had a wonderful morning spending time just soaking everything in.

The staff is very friendly and nice. The museum would probably be better if it were not under renovation. The space is small to start and having even less space means that there is less to see. The gift shop was tiny and did not have that great a selection of items. The clerk there was very nice and sent... More

We always do a quick stop @ CMA whenever we are in Columbus. There is always a good mix of special exhibits in addition to their permanent collect. It's small enough to navigate through without being overwhelmed, yet we always feel fulfilled. We went for the Bourguignan Retrospective and ended up loving the "In___We Trust: Art & Money" installation. Bonus:... More

Visiting the museum on a rainy Sunday afternoon was perfect. I can't wait to come back when the addition/construction are complete.

This museum is probably just the right size for most visitors. The quality of the art is first-rate and there isn't so much you are over-whelmed. And their special exhibits are impressive too. Clearly the museum has excellent curators. Parking is free behind the museum.

The Columbus Museum of Art in Columbus, Ohio is a fantastic place to visit. First time there and I would highly recommend this museum to everyone that appreciates fine art. It is easy to get around inside the museum and everything there is arranged in a top notch fashion. I am sure you will be pleased with the museum as... More

The magnificent downtown historic architecture was our highlight of the Columbus Museum of Art. A lovely Chihuly glass sculpture graced the beautiful atrium used a seating area for a light lunch. Sadly, the vast majority of the fine art galleries appeared empty of all contents, and rooms which did have exhibits the pieces sparse. The exception being the interactive and... More

This is nice (though small) Museum. There was an interactive section meant for children, but us adults enjoyed the hands-on stuff too! The money exhibit was pretty cool. We will visit again next time we are in town.
