Great afternoon place to visit and wander through the galleries. There is a fantastic children's area. Parking is always free, and there is free museum admission every Sunday!

The new addition is a fabulous, modern glass structure connected to the original building by several, indoor sky bridges. There's a good permanent collection of impressionists, and interesting visiting exhibits. The new cafe is noisy, but great, and the museum store is well worth a visit.

This art museum should be very proud. The collection was a wonderful mix of different kinds of art. The only disappointment was no postcards of favorite artwork. Fortunately none flas photography was welcome and you can see from photos their was enough light to capture some memories.

The recently opened new wing of the museum brings a lot of light and space to showcase new artists. The outdoor sculpture garden looks like it will be a nice place to sit and enjoy a book or lunch. As always, the annual LEGO exhibit was awesome. Free Sundays are nice for a relaxed weekend ending.

With the new addition, the Columbus Museum of Art has "opened the doors" to more types of Art, from the Old Classics to the Newest and most Innovative. Add in an ever-changing program of events, a new cafeteria and re-energized outdoor space and you will never be disappointed.

We decided to celebrate our anniversary with friends doing something different for a change. They suggested the Columbus Museum of Art, and we went one day between Christmas and New Years. We wandered around for a couple of hours, first enjoying the modern art section, looked at some work by the masters, and took a break for a salad and... More

I hadn't been to the art museum for a long time and was so pleasantly surprised. The new renovation is very inviting. The cafe had wonderful food, but a little pricey. My 16 yo and I had a lot of fun putting together one of the "puzzles" of art, Great experience.

Our trip to the CMOA was unexpected. Our flight to the BVI was cancelled due to severe weather, so we made use of the delay by visiting the museum. It was beautiful! The new addition is wonderful! Even we adults enjoyed interacting with several of the exhibits designed for children. We saw and grandfather and his grandson working on a... More

Visiting family and needed something different for a rainy day. Came here after lunch and stay for 3 hours. Lots of unique treasurers to see. Some you may not enjoy (some of the modern art is not to my taste) but you can find something you'll like and if you look around. Many kids activities on the ground floor of... More

One of the nicer and larger museums we've visited.My favorites were the works of Aminsh Brenda Lynn Robinson.A great selection of Contemporaries also.We spent the afternoon,but did not get to visit the new wing.Maybe we will return one day.Lunch at the cafe was a bit pricey.Very ''new or like new'' facility and squeaky clean.Nice stations through-out to write&post your interpretations.
