A highlight of Cleveland tourism, the newly renovated art museum boasts artifacts several hundred years old thru current art. The no-fee admission includes interactive displays where visitors can download background info on thousands of pieces. Enjoy the many exhibits and a freshly prepared meal in the massive entry hall. Tasty and impressive!

I love been to this museum for several exhibitions. They are the best! The art museum is on Museum Campus of Cleveland, so there are so many other museums to visit when you are in the area. The Botonical Gardens are close by as well!

This is the jewel of Cleveland OH. It is normally free to the public. They have a event called MIX on the first Friday of every month with a open bar and entertainment in the atrium.

The Cleveland Museum of Art is a treasure! As an artist myself, I often go and walk the galleries of the permanent collections. They have a wonderful new asian gallery and a growing contemporary collection. I might add that this museum is free to all except for special exhibitions. The entire university circle area is great to walk around and... More

Very nice remodel, my 12 years loved the modern art and the interactive technology items. The cafe is way overpriced but quality food.

The CMA is rated second to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC. I've visited many of the museums with high rankings, frequently visiting the Met during the years that I lived in NYC. The CMA deserves its reputation. They have an outstanding permanent collection of paintings from the Impressionist era - Renoir, Degas, Cassatt, and more. And the museum... More

We spent a leisurely Saturday afternoon here. The building is amazing. We walked over from the history museum and made a day of exploring, since I've been born and raised in Cleveland and never visited this museum. We are planning on going again, it was that beautiful. You need at least a few hours, just to at least see everything.... More

It's free, and the Museum is a work of art in and of itself. And the collections are all top quality and presentation without being so huge as to dilute the magnificence of the overall experience.

Wow! I have travelled to art museums around the world, and this is one of the best collections I have ever seen! And it's free! They have something for everyone- from Renaissance to modern, and even an entire room filled with armor. The architecture is beautiful too.
