I had not visited this museum since I was in grade school 40 years ago and was blown away by the incredible collection of art! And the best part is that the museum is FREE! Perfect way to spend several hours on a rainy day or a hot afternoon.

The first day on your weeklong Cleveland vacation includes a stop at this wonderful place, soak it in because the whole area is one day of going from place to place and the Museum of Art is the main piece of the puzzle, bring University Circle area together. There is a natural history museum around the corner that offers the... More

Even if you don't have a lot of time, this is one destination that is worth the trip. I was in Cleveland at a convention when I decided I needed to stretch my legs and explore the city's bus system. This museum is near the campus of Case Western University and Severance Hall, the home of the Cleveland symphony, so... More

One of the best collections in the US. Newest addition is beautiful. Excellent gallery talks. No fee for general admission. Fee charged for some of the special shows. Can go for a short visit, or spend the day.

While its a little bit outside of downtown, the Cleveland Museum of Art is a must see if you're in the area. Their displays are carefully curated and their inventory of art is amazing. You could spend hours in the museum and still not see the whole collection. In addition to the art collection, the museum itself is a work... More

Easy to access and easy to follow, the collection- small but made up of only the very best examples- is laid out in a logical way that takes full advantage of the spectacular buildings and connecting atrium. Every part is magnificent. This is the 100th anniversary year so their special exhibitions- mainly free - are outstanding. Really a gem.

It had been "decades" since my last trip to the Cleveland Museum of Art and was I in for a real surprise! It has changed dramatically for the better! The magnitude of the various collections was an "eye-opener!" We were there for four solid hours on a Sunday afternoon and feel like we only "scratched the surface" in seeing everything!... More
