We visited the museum today. My husband had been telling me about some of the art works he had viewed here several years ago and wanted to share them with me. Unfortunately, when... read more

We paid full price to view a construction site with a few rooms of descent art--no price reduction for that opportunity! Steer clear of this rip off.

Small but nice museum. There are lots of interactive activities for kids. We enjoyed the tribute to Marvin Hamlisch. My one complaint would be in regards to the European Art exhibit. The written comentary posted alongside the works was clearly written based on a particular ideologic viewpoint. I find that the commentary in art museums usually enhances my experience by... More

We paid 20 dollars to be admitted. Over 70% of the galleries were closed. I sure hope what we saw was not the extent of their collection. We saw everything in 35 minutes. The Harness work, Bierstadt work and the Small European collection were the only notables. I was very disappointed. I am willing to try it again in a... More

Just went and it is under too much construction to go. If you have kids, there is still a lot for them to do but for adults there are only a few rooms. I think they should offer free admission or close it completely because there is so little to see. They said more galleries would be open by the... More

Took two of our grandchildren, ages 8 & 11. They enjoyed the interactive activities as well as the works of art.

We visited the museum today. My husband had been telling me about some of the art works he had viewed here several years ago and wanted to share them with me. Unfortunately, when we arrived we found out the building is under renovation/expansion and they only had 2% of their art works available to view. Although that was a disappointment,... More

The CMA is a nice art museum for the whole family and is easily handicap accessible. I am looking forward to seeing the changes they are currently making. The museum is open during construction.

Coming from an area where it is still a free ticket, I feel a little uncomfortable parting with my dollars to see art I can't be sure I will appreciate. I am not a splash on/ dash on paint, wrap some wire around a toothbrush and call it art kind of person so I was hoping that I wasn't going... More

I especially loved the exhibit of embroidery by the Holocaust survivor. It is free on a Sunday afternoon (allow 3 hours), but also remember to ask for educator discount.

This museum is very patron friendly. The exhibits were great. My two teenage daughters enjoyed greatly.
