The museum is a great experience for any age.

A wonderful collection, wide-ranging and accessible. Try to arrange for a visit when the museum is free.

The museum is located in a great part of Cleveland within short walking distance to the Botanical Gardens, Natural History Museum, Severance Hall and Case Western Reserve University. The Museum of Art is well worth a visit if you are in town. Go here for an afternoon (it is free admission) and head over to Little Italy for dinner afterwards.

I take my out of town visitors there and they are blown away by the atrium and then the collections just add to the overall experience, plus you can stop for lunch or a nice glass... More

CMA has finally completed its renovation project and it is truly a fabulous art museum with two great food choices. There are two places that everyone who visits Cleveland should see, this museum and The Rock Hall of Fame.

You seriously won't believe this is all in CLE OHIO! Some of the most amazing Picasso's I've ever seen...this place goes on and on with the most incredible items. It is truly shocking. Thousands of priceless pieces that you would expect to see in Rome or Paris. A must see not only in CLE but for all those who appreciate... More
