The museum was walking distance to my hotel, reasonably priced and very nice. If you have children, they have MANY ACTIVITIES and HANDS ON things/crafts for them to do.

This museum was such a disappointment. I understand the expansion project is ongoing, but to charge full admission when you are only displaying half of your collection is a joke. To display Monet's in a dirty hallway is a disgrace. They should have included a tour of the storage room where all the worthwhile pieces were located.

Two floor museum with an active program for locals and some great items. When we were there the Monets were out but due to construction lots of things from the collection were not showing although 3 exhibits were on. The guides are really knowledgable and friendly. Seniors get in for $8 and Sundays are free as is the nearby lot... More

The Columbus Museum of Art is undergoing a massive expansion project; which is excellent considering that approximately just 50% of the collection is on display at any given time. The good news about half the collection being out of rotation is that the Museum can (and frequently does) change the exhibits. This gives visitors something new to see almost every... More

This stop was worth a visit. I wish they had more traveling exhibits come through. We picked up a membership and have visited a few times but not too much changes. The renovations have been going of for a long time so maybe once those are done the museum can attract more. There is a kids room where kids can... More

I love art museums. I love all art - period. This was just such a let down. You can go to the Toledo Museum of Art & the Cleveland Museum of Art for FREE and they are both EXCELLENT art museums. This art museum is in Columbus, the capital of OH, you would think it would be above average. To... More

My kids and I went here on a snowy winter day, and they loved the Lego exhibits and hands on areas where they could build and then display their creations. I did not see too much else of the Museum as with younger kids the patience only goes so far, but what i saw was impressive.

This is a great place to visit with children. My children enjoyed the hands on stations. It kept them interested during our visit. Sundays are very nice because admission is free. I recommend visiting, especially if they have traveling exhibits there too.
