The museum is well laid out and has an awesome art collection. Monet, Warhol just to name 2. there was a silver exhibition going on at the time we went and it displayed marvellous artefacts. There are treasure hunts for kids and a nice museum store. Also, it wasn't crowded so we could look at all the treasures in peace... More

My goodness!! One has to be a local to really be able to appreciate the items in their collection. The building is amazing and their Cincinnati silver collection is a treasure. Have you ever heard of a dessert shovel? I hadn't. Funny thing was, the thing was shaped like a shovel, too.

I love art museums. This one is beautiful inside and out and it is free. They have a diverse collection. Although this museum isn't very large it is and ode to what good taste can buy. If you enjoy gardens definately take a stroll outside around the museum.

I love the changing displays. Every time you visit the museum it is a whole new experience. The atmosphere is divinely calming. I could just sit and meditate for hours!

The Princes Di exhibit was worth the gate. The facility has many venues to experience other than the exhibit we saw.

I took my children (ages 5 and 4months) to the museum at my son's request. He's a big fan of Little Einstein's, where a famous work of art is featured each episode. I was a little unsure about how "into it" he would be once we were there, but I was pleasantly surprised! He loved it! We loved seeing the... More

The staff is pleasantly nice and makes suggestions to tour museum. It's not over welming and you really can go any direction. The cafe was awesome. I had the hummus and... More

My husband and I had gone a month earlier and decided to take our kids back with us. There is a scavenger-hunt type activity for the kids to do on their way through the museum, which helped my 11-yr-old and 14-yr-old stay a bit more interested and make them consider what they're looking at. As with any museum, some areas... More
