Other than a parking fee ($6) this museum is free to your and is HUGE. Definitely would take more than one trip to see everything. Extensive collections of paintings from the renaissance to present day, also a ton of sculptures and pottery from different parts of the world. There is a cafe inside and a beautiful courtyard to sit in. Only thing I didn't like was that you are not allowed to bring in a water bottle.

One of our reasons for stopping in Cleveland while on vacation was to visit this fine museum. It was a good decision. It reminds me very much of the Art Institute of Chicago in its breadth and scope and is definitely a world-class institution. We arrived right when the museum opened and spent several hours wandering through the galleries, which were nearly empty. So much art and so little time. Our feet gave out before we had a chance to see everything. I must compliment the curators who thoughtfully provided information about each work and also some context or interesting tidbit of information. My favorite painting was "The Pink Cloud" by Henri-Edmond Cross and included that he was an anarchist, which was an interesting detail. We had lunch at the Provenance Cafe which offered a good selection of food at a decent price. If I get back to Cleveland, I will definitely visit this wonderful museum again.

My wife and I visited during the height of the pandemic. Things had just begun to open up again and we snagged tickets to the Museum. Temperatures taken on the way in, admissions spread out to keep the numbers low, and limits to the number of people allowed in each gallery. Very impressed and felt safe.
All that aside, the Museum's regular collection is amazing: the sculptures, armor, etc. We also caught some great special exhibits: Korean embroidery, contact sheets, Tiffany.
The place just never disappoints.

CMA is outstanding and well worth the visit. The collections are superb and building architecture outstanding. For those not from Cleveland, the museum is located in beautiful park like museum campus adjacent to Case Western Reserve University. The museum docents we’re very polite and helpful. While not as large as the Met or Art Institute of Chicago, I highly recommend. The collection is robust without being overwhelming and perfect for a several hour visit (or longer). This is a highly desirable alternative to its larger, less friendly and more crowded bigger city comparable museums.

One of the country's best art museums, although art people will tell you that the Museum lacks a significant modern collection. If you like Egyptian, Greek and Roman, Renaissance, and other world art, it's a must-see attraction. Asian, African, and Islamic art are there too. It's a beautiful building, with a recent expansion that has added to its appeal. They have special exhibitions, a good (and pricey) gift shop, and restaurant.

We visited this museum for the first time and it was an excellent visual experience. They have paintings from Van Gogh, Renoir, Monet, Dali, Degas, Matisse, Pissaro, Picasso and O'Keeffe. If you love art from the Impressionist era, you will love this place. Plenty of other exhibits for all tastes.

Great time to visit is early October during the week when there are no crowds. Plenty of restrooms and drinking fountains. Good gift shop and cafe. Helpful, courteous staff. Parking is also good and is right next to the museum.

I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to the Cleveland Museum of Art. I didn't know what to expect, but I almost always enjoy art museums. The museum has a very nice collection. There are sections with art from Asia, Ancient Greece, Ancient Rome, Ancient Egypt, and Ancient Babylon. The museum is laid out well and it is pretty easy to navigate. In their Western Art collection there are some really nice pieces from the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. The hall that contained the armor and weapons was fascinating and contained many beautiful examples of arms from Medieval and early Modern Europe. I enjoyed some of the baroque pieces by Tintoretto and van Hontorst. I liked seeing some of the Benjamin West works that were in the museum as well. Art from the last 100 years or so was well represented as well. There are some very nice works by Monet, Renoit, Matisse, Picasso, and Dalí. The object labels throughout the museum were very informative and helpful. They did help me to understand pieces that I was unfamiliar with.
I really enjoyed my visit and I recommend a visit to the Cleveland Museum of Art.

We only had a short time so we concentrated on the Giacometti exhibit, which is fascinating. It's also the only exhibit we had to pay for but the price is modest. We could easily have spent a whole day. There's a good variety of exhibits for everyone. The buildings and grounds are lovely as well.

What a suprise! Parking $12.00 but museum entrance was free. You can make a donation if you want. Free tours but you must sign up, very knowledgeable docents, making the experience worth while. A nice mix of art, sculpture, tapestries to satisfy all. Do not miss this!

Well the Cleveland museum of art is free to get in first off. special exhibits will cost you some money but it's still very reasonable. They have everything that you could ever want in art and it's very well displayed. They have a parking garage right underneath the museum and a great cafeteria. I've been there for business and social times and never have enough time to see the whole thing. You really need to take it in sections not all in one day.
This is highly highly highly recommended.
