I have lived in Cincinnati for many years but didn't go here because I am not fan of Picaso thing. But, fortunately, I had a chance to go this place by attending the conference and surprised by its attractiveness. I highly recommend this place for everyone~!

The museum is free due to a substantial gift from an anonymous donor. The bad news now they charge you for parking. Shifty but to not let that dissuade you. There is all kinds of art from all over the world here. You might think it is too small to offer the greats and Masters but they are here. The... More

This gallery is free and has a diverse collection - from Picasso to Warhol to Constable. The on-site cafe served lovely food which was good value for money and much healthier than most US restaurants.

I could spend hours exploring new and old exhibits alike in the Cincinnati Art Museum! Thanks to generous donations, this museum is free for all to enjoy. The museum has core exhibits that remain that same always, but the staff brings in many unique traveling exhibits as well. This is a great place for adults and children alike. Definitely a... More

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
