Beautiful museum, the building itself is a work of art.Shows change quite often so you can see something different several times each year.There is always someone to ask questions,and give information.You can walk at your own pace,spend as much or as little time at each exhibit as you like.

Always changing, very neat little art place. I love art but some of the pieces were odd... but I guess everyone has their own tastes.

First of all, this place is free. So, how can you go wrong with that? It's got a lovely collection of impressionist art with all the big names accounted for. If you are in Cincinnati, it's worth a visit. The building is a work of art in itself, and the museum staff are very friendly and helpful.

The museum is very good but not great. It does have some very nice art, especially the local Rookwood pottery. There are some very nice paintings but much of it is second tier. But they do try hard to exhibit their collection in a nice manner. I loved the Tiffany glass windows at the top of the stairs. The museum... More

Having visited here several years ago and being quite impressed, we returned for another visit on Saturday. It's a high quality collection displayed in a wonderful building set in a terrific location, all of which makes you feel as if you're in a museum in a much larger city. It's not very visible from the roads below, so you need... More

I have visited this museum many times. I regret that they have turned the central hall into a market place and still retain those inane orange signs. The shop could use a better buyer as the articles on sale have little appeal. The exhibitions, for the most part, are very good but there is now too much emphasis on contemporary... More

Beautiful art located in a beautiful building. Their collection is so large that you really need to go multiple times to see all of it. I've taken small children there many times. I usually have taken them to see the Egyptian, Medieval, and American Indian rooms. They usually ask to see more! One of my favorite paintings, Marc Chagall' s... More

The building is spectacular. You really can't see everything in just one visit. If I lived close to it I would go often. A wonderful collection of so many artists. If you love art this is a great place to visit

They had a nice well rounded collection. This is worth the stop. I especially liked the kinetic sculpture on the wall....6 stories of motion, light and sound.
