Absolutely a highly impressive place that should not be ignored while visiting Cincinnati. Would be praised by all means once visited. A must place for art lovers of all types. Prominence is beyond words. Cool and serene environment will never let you feel about the time invested there. Do see whenever possible.

A lovely museum with a beautiful collection. Everything here is easy and comfortable.. a beautiful tree-lined drive, a view of the city, a lovely gift shop, convenient parking, etc.. and the art is great too! Check out their website to see the highlights of their catalog. Their special exhibitions are always well-done with plenty of room to walk around without... More

Situated in a large park setting, the Museum provides free admission; parking is $4 but if you spend a certain amount in the cafe or store, it is waived. Excellent collection of a wide range of paintings, sculptures, historic items, antiquities and furniture. Well presented (lighting) and most well annotated. The cafe sits in an inner courtyard with very nice... More

This museum is awesome. I'm so happy to have it in my city! There is so much history of Cincinnati here. I spent two hours on the first floor and felt like I hardly scratched the surface. I didn't even make it off the ground level! The museum is free and parking is only $4 (free if you spend $10... More

This is a great museum in Cincinnati. It is deceptively large, and very beautiful. There are many famous works of art, along with a great cafe area.

I agree with one of the reviewers that quality and scope of the works compensates for lack of quantity. Went to their photography room, for example, and was a wee bit disappointed that there were ten or so works and that was it. However, I found almost all of the pieces there to be fascinating and compelling. Some classic photographs,... More

What it lacks in overall size, the Cincinnati Art Museum compensates for in terms of quality and scope. When we visited in May 2015, there was an Andy Warhol exhibit along with the permanent collection. The museum is located in a beautiful park setting and makes for an enjoyable day trip.

Very interesting collection focused on Cincinnati artists; particularly pottern and local artists. Interesting collection of Warhol and athletes, primarily Pete Rose/ Bucolic site and interesting early 20th century architecture. Nice for a 2 ~ 3 hour visit. Nice sampling of impressionists.
