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.

Went there with my college group. It's a nice museum and well worth the time. What a treat to get to see some great pieces that we actually studied in college. Worth the trip and the time.

I think this museum is vastly underrated. They have a really great collection, it's free to get in (save for $4 parking fee), and it always has really great traveling exhibitions on. I recently came to see the Wesselman show, and could not have been happier. I love coming down to this museum (just an hour and a half away... More

First let me say that this museum is free. You only have to pay $4 for parking, and that is reduced if you buy something at the gift shop or the restaurant. So it is a great value. Lots of art! Lots of different art. Two floors of art. Paintings, sculptures in bronze and marble, pottery, furniture, and a special... More

To see 100 wonderful masterpieces of Japanese art and an engaging exhibit on the work of fashion designer Rudi Gernreich, model Peggy Moffit, and photographer William Claxton costs just $4 to park. The colors, fashions, etc made me smile. If you want to save that $4, you can park and walk from nearby Mt Adams. The museum can be a... More

A lovely location and beautiful exhibits. Chihuliy chandelier, Impressionist paintings, a lovely courtyard to relax, Taste of Duveneck fundraiser in the spring - what's not to like. And a view overlooking Cincinnati. Fun for all ages.

The Cincinnati Art Museum is one of the must see attractions on your visit to Cincinnati and admission is free because of a generous endowment. Cincinnati is known for it's rich historical love and support of arts and culture and the CAM is most indicative of that sentiment. The museum boasts it's own broad permanent collection and also frequently hosts... More
