My husband and I recently visited this museum on free Thursday. We are so glad we visited on their free day. The building itself is quite beautiful, but the art was not to our liking. It was very modern art....the kind that makes you think...More
Give this small museum a chance. You should not be disappointed. There is enough content to equip visitors with the equivalence of a college level of knowledge about many aspects of modern or contemporary art especially if they return for a second, third or a...More
You MUST like modern art to appreciate and enjoy what they have. Including the time to circle inside the parking garage, walk from the parking garage across the street, use the restroom, ask for a museum map (there isn't one), tour the museum, and reverse...More
Go here on Thursday as it is free admission. Located downtown it is tough to find parking. Mot o the Art was newer and more modern works, Tough call if it would be worth going if you had to pay reg. price.
Perhaps the biggest problem for the Akron Art Museum is that it is so close to the world class Cleveland Museum. That said, it’s a surprisingly nice institution and if you’re visiting the area for the Front at festival, it’s definitely worth the trip.
As an art enthusiast in general, I throughly enjoy all types of art, from scriptures to paintings, and in all mediums. As you enter the museum, you’ll see a three-story glass lobby that serves as the public entry with an amazing focal visual entrance. If...More
Much smaller than Cleveland’s art museum, but still worth a visit to slake one’s artlust and curiosity. The focus of the permanent collection is on American, not international, art. There are good temporary exhibits, so one can profit from going a few times a year...More
I have toured this museum in the past on field trip with students..nothing inspirational and some I personally don't think a table painted purple and placed upside down is art.. this is just my opinion and I admit modern art doesn't appeal to me. If...More
Half of the museum was closed as they were reading a new exhibit. The exhibits on display were good but very limited in number on the walls. Enjoyed seeing how the older building was renovated and the new part added.
We drove all the way to the museum, found great FREE parking right across the street in a covered garage, only to walk across the street, in a light rain, to find out the museum was CLOSED! Why? For a PRIVATE function! Really? On a...More

For the total museum size and the framework of its collection the book store can be and often is for many visitors a curiosity and so these visitors might find that a visit there is a good reason to return to the museum and a quintessential part of their purpose for coming to the museum in the first place. Sales do boost revenue for keeping the museum in operation. These people satisfy that curiosity and look for merchandise that will make memories of their visit there worth remembering. More worthwhile perhaps than a visit to the near-by coffee shop but the proximity of one with the other makes a visit to both places a convenient way to sample so much that the museum has to offer visitors. Does the coffee shop by itself make a visitor a legitimate art historian? Same response might be appropriate in efforts to size up the importance of the book store. A better way to size up the importance of these auxiliary museum places is to inquire about the function and importance of the museum library and to look at the library before settling in to drinking and eating at the coffee shop before or after going into the book store. Riding the elevator should not replace a visit to the book store. Intellectual benefits for visiting the bookstore are most plentiful. Find out where your membership can take you. This question is not light-hearted or trivial. Neither are the museum and its collection. Talk to museum personnel about this matter.
