Free? Amazing. If you don't want to pay to park, just park down the hill and walk up. Some great Impressionists and Van Goghs.

There is a wide variety of collections at this museum. Unfortunately ex didn't get here until 4:00, and the museum closed at 5:00. We had to blow through most of the exhibits.

Not the Met by any means but a terrific museum that impresses for the size of this city. Excellent contemporary collection.

I loved the Princess Diana Exhibit. It brought back so many memories and the displays were lovely and so well coordinated with the music and pictures.

Free! Start off with that...then the collection they have is unreal. It seemed like the hallways were never ending with art and collectables. Well worth the visit. Parking is $4.

The Cincinnati Art Museum has so many forms of art that it appeals to many different people. We love the Rockwood Pottery exhibit.

You cannot beat a trip to the Cincinnati Art Museum. Entrance is free, but parking costs unless you park just outside the entrance for the short walk. Either way, it's great. And the restaurant is excellent, also.

The art museum is average in the many museums I have visited. It has some great pieces and brings out more interest with pieces I never considered enjoying. The building is wonderful.
