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.

We have always enjoyed this museum....but, as we were a vendor at the museum during an event....we had unfettered, private access during the museum event. What a treat. Elegant, interactive, broad offerings, and what an even staff!

Most exhibits were closed and the art that was on display was mediocre at best. I have been to Dayton Art Institute and had a much better experience.

We stopped while visiting Columbus and as usual, really enjoyed their special exhibits. "In ____ we trust" is a unique international look at money and it's cultural significance, shared with whimsy and also serious consideration. The Mobile Art exhibit was also a lot of fun for all ages. It's exciting that this museum is expanding soon...More reasons to visit more... More

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.
