“Art Museum - Enjoyable, not overwhelming”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

The Cincinnati Art Museum has a lovely setting in Eden Park. The collection includes a wide range of paintings and sculptures from all over the world, but also features works by local artists. It's easy to navigate and enjoy a range of types of artwork without being too overwhelming.

“A educational & intelectual place to visit.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014

I believe this museum is free to visit. check their website. Last I knew an endowment had made this possible. There may be a parking fee though. They have different displays so do check their website. Otherwise, there are several enormous rooms up & down with displays from ancient to modern. Get some culture and enjoy a visit. We have eaten in their cafe and thought it was good.

“Treated as Family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

An international museum which treats its guests as members of the museum family. Exhibits and special exhibitions change with a frequency that permits repeated excursions.

“Free Sunday”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2014

It was free and the garage that day and street meters are free on weekends. It's a nice compact museum in a converted house and the tour was nice.
