A gem of a museum we are fortunate to have in Cleveland. Best part is there isn't, a admission charge. A great place to spend a afternoon. They do have special exhibits which are usually a charge .

This museum is a wonderful bargain, and you can get there with public transportation. There's much to see! You can plan a meal in the beautiful atrium.

Awesome building, great diverse collection that's displayed really well. And it's free. Just wish we had more time to explore. Worth a visit to Cleveland all by itself.
