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 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.

We had never been to an art museum before. We decided this was the perfect choice as A) it had an "In ___ We Trust" exhibit that we thought would be interesting, in case the art wasn't. And B) Sundays are free. We enjoyed the coin/currency exhibit very much and found much to look at. We would certainly go back... More

The art was nice and they has a lot of interactive things for kids, but this museum is so small. Not worth the admission price. Tip: check it out on a Sunday when it's free.

It's a very attractive, nicely-designed museum. Two colleagues and I managed a one-hour break from our conference, and we were all so glad we had a chance to discover the Columbus Museum. I especially liked the works on display in the Center for Creativity -- very diverse, and some were incredibly creative and distinctive. And the tall Dale Chihuly sculpture... More

I spend a lot of time dragging my children to art museums across the country, and I have to say that so far, this has been their favorite stop ever! The center for creativity is an amazing hands on experience for little ones, and I enjoyed it too! There were several stations for my kiddos (ages 6 and 11) to... More

My visit to the Columbus Museum of Art was a thoroughly positive experience, the contemporary exhibition which looked at the role money plays in society, was exceptional and very thought provoking. the permanent galleries featuring the works of the grand masters were also a joy. Finally, the staff were also very helpful. I would highly recommend this Gallery.
