It's hard to believe that such a wonderful collection of art is offered to us for free. I've been many, many times and find this an amazing oasis of culture. The collection is mind-blowing, spanning many cultures and eras. What a gem!

This is a beautiful building with many types of art to check out. We were able to find street parking and decided to just stay a couple hours (so parking was pretty cheap for us). You could spend a lot of time here, but my family went through each room fairly quickly. It was not crowded at all, and we... More

The exhibits are never ending, and around each corner is another beautiful piece. Some great modern art, but the best was the Asian and Indian collections. Well worth the free admission price and the 13 dollar parking fee :)

Greatly expanded a couple of years ago, the Cleveland Museum of Art is nothing short of spectacular. The permanent collection has anything you might want to see - a special highlight for me is the armor collection. The museum also hosts traveling shows and special events, including musical concerts. Midsummer's 'Solstice' and the 'Parade the Circle' are truly special experiences.... More

The renovation of this museum is the best renovation I've ever seen. Not only is it architecturally beautiful, but it has allowed them to exhibit their impressive Asian Art collection in a far better way than before. The whole museum is re-energized, with great shows, concerts, and events.

My boyfriend and I went here on a whim, and it is a must see. The building itself is phenomenal, and they are always changing their exhibits! Only downside is we went on a Saturday afternoon and it was super crowded.

The Cleveland Museum of Art is absolutely facinating. Modern web program allows you to scan an icon near art pieces and see additional information about some of the artwork. As much a historical museum as an art gallery. The grounds are gorgeous with a small pond with walking path. This museum is large and requires a great deal of walking... More

I went to the Cleveland museum of art to see the Impresoonists exhibit and stayed for hours looking at all the other am zings things there. Suits of armor, Tiffany lamps, statues, of course paintings in all styles. I like landscapes and portraits best. The well lit atrium has a bistro, too. Plan to spend the day!
