“1st time visitor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2014

Wow! I spent 5 hours with my daughter and husband exploring this wonderful museum. We could've stayed longer but we went on a Thursday and the museum closes at 5pm. It has a wide variety of art and history. I was very impressed with the impressionist collection especially seeing Monet's "Water lilies" up close and personal. We had a fantastic lunch in their gourmet cafeteria under the atrium. It felt like a beautiful spring day in the middle of winter. We plan to go again when my in-laws come to visit. BTW...admission is FREE!

“Beautiful Addition”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2014

The Cleveland Museum of Art, recently remodeled and expanded is truly a world class facility. The architects did a masterful job of uniting old with new by means of a beautiful atrium that ties everything together. A FREE museum, they do charge to visit special exhibits such as the currently running VanGoh Repetitions exhibit. The permanent collection is very impressive, civering many time periods and styles. A must see if you are visiting Cleveland.

“Wow!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2014

Being from Ontario, I have seen quite a few art galleries and paid their admission prices. I absolutely cannot get over the fact that this place is FREE!! The vast size of this place could easily take days to go through and view everything if you were stopping to read each and every info piece! I believe there are two areas that charge admission, but the amount of pieces that you can view for free is almost overwhelming there is so much to choose from. A must see if you are visiting Cleveland.

“Very good special Van Gogh exhibit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2014

It is so nice to find very good art museum with the high caliber of Cleveland Museum of Art - free admission for permanent collections and charging fees only for special exhibits. This is a must see attraction for both locals and visitors to Cleveland.

We came this time to see the special Repetitions exhibit of Van Gogh. This is the first time this theme and selected masterpieces of Van Gogh have been shown - great idea and very enjoyable. Worth the price of $20/pp. But the price also includes the Remaking Tradition: Modern Art of Japan from the Tokyo National Museum special exhibit which is also very enjoyable.
