The exhibits were well curated, although I would have liked to see more of the collection. Loved the art pottery interspersed!

Though its a small museum, it has a lot of information about fashion & jewellery, things we took for granted has much more to learn about, well worth visiting specially if one is interested in fashion. Very well maintained & the staff is very courteous & helpful.

Family members have attended Kent State and while on campus, I've enjoyed many visits to the museum. Eight galeries to explore with different displays each quarter, all among polished marble, glass and mirrors. Please note that the self-contained library is non-circulating and accessible for research by appointment only. I've never had time to schedule a visit, but would sure love... More

Very much enjoyed both the exhibits and how they were presented. One of the nation's best exhibits on costume and fashion design, combined with some very nice exhibits on glass and decorative arts in a very attractive building. Do not miss the very nice gift shop, which has some very unique items as most quality museum gift shops do. A... More

Great collection of clothing through the ages. A lingerie collection from Katherine Hepburn was paired with many of her stage dresses.

Many people who lived through the 60s and 70s are well aware of the impact the events of May 1970 had on the collective American psyche. A visit to Kent State will help one to understand the senseless loss of life and also how the Vietnam era began its end. I visited the campus on a beautiful August day (I... More

The tour guide was excellent. He gave us all the pertinent information, then allowed us time to browse on our own, while staying available to answer any questions we had. The displays rotate, which means we can return often and see different exhibits.

We've visited the museum many times over the years to see the changing exhibits, the last time with friends who had not been there before. The quality of the displays and the abililty to get up close to see the detail is wonderful. I'm always anxious to see what's next for the special exhibits. Two on our last visit were... More
