My first visit in 20 years, and I wish I hadn't had the kids so I could explore more. They had a good time tracking down the items they chose for our personal tour (the ArtLens app.) the expanded building is fantastic. Well organized, and so much to see!

The building itself is a work of art. BEAUTIFUL! The art work is that what it is-- some you like some you don't.. But the whole experience is a delight. And it is free.

This is my second trip to Cleveland with my children (ages 13, 11, 9). I'm always pleasantly surprised how interested they are. Especially the age of some artifacts (e.g. Egyptian exhibit). Admission is free, so stay as long or as short as you like.

The Art Museum has the most extensive collection of Art. You could spend days there and not see everything. I have a Membership so I attend often. It free and not to be missed.

Great collection of masterpieces inside a building that is so stunning. Van Gogh, Picasso, Tiffany, Dali, surrealism as well as classical art. Spend at least a few hours to breathe in the beauty

We felt like cattle being herded through - tight walkways and crowded. It was definitely not an enjoyable visit for us.

Free admission which is always a plus, especially where I only had an hour to explore. Fantastic museum that rivals NYC and DC. They had the largest Monet I've seen. They had a very diverse collection, including several works from Picasso, DaVinci, Van Gogh, Rembrandt. They had a very nice modern art section which included a Pollack and Worhol. Also... More

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 .
