I love the art museum. I have been countless times and each time it feels like a new experience. They have classics ones on display continuously, but they are often switching out other exhibits and making renovations. They are always improving and adding new wings to the facilities. There is a spot upstairs that is constantly changing after a month... More

In case you think art is fiction and lies, you'll enjoy the statue of Pinocchio at the entrance of the museum. The collection is not overwhelming, but you can get tired trying to see all of it, and there are some good places to sit and enjoy the art. Treasures are displayed in the entrance hall, including the Amati viola,... More

Fabulous exhibits in beautiful Eden Park. They have a lovely Cafe for lunch, or you can picnic in the park across the way.

I recently had a business trip in Cincinnati and had to come early on Sunday. I lucked out and found myself at the Cincinnati Art Museum on one of their free monthly Sundays. I enjoy art museums and have been to many of the larger ones throughout the US and Europe. I found the Cincinnati Art Museum to be very... More

Friends from out of town always enjoy this museum which sits in a park. Art of every medium is on display and there is a lovely museum shop offering replicas of the real thing.

If, like me, you have not been to the Cincinnati Art Museum in a while, it is time to return. I have never seen the museum looking better than it does now. When you enter, under a Dale Chihuly cobalt blue chandelier, you proceed to a "hall of fame" - a sampler of some of the best pieces in the... More

Not being "into" art, this art museum came as a very pleasant surprise in a city that seems devoid of surprises! The building itself is standard American neo-classical on the outside but inside there is a wonderful feeling of warmth and welcome. But the greatest revelation were the art works themselves. From the Gainsborough to the indigenous there's an amazing... More

Museum is free on Sunday. They have extensive collections beautifully displayed. Good place to go to reflect on beautiful things. Guest collections frequent the museum and are lovely to attend .

A great diverse group of permanent art works with wonderful special exhibits. This month there was a Japanese arts and crafts exhibit and a 1960's fashion exhibit at the same time.. don't forget the gift shop.
