I grew up in Columbus and always love going to the art museum. We have an annual membership that covers the parking cost ($5), and offers unlimited entry and 10% discount in the cafe and gift store. Check online before you go because they often have special exhibits. But if there's nothing special going on, don't let that stop you.... More

This place was a nice stop in an unknown city. Not quite the most astounding exhibit we've been to, but not insignificant. The title is a note found on a public sticky note tack board. The Ohio people are just as likely to leave memories as the museum itself!

Go on Sunday, admission it is free! You can find parking for free as well around the area. Parking meters should be free that day. Also there is a new place to eat inside and the gift shop has all types of fun stuff! We went today and they had some neat new exhibits I did not see before. I... More

the best part of the recent traveling Picasso exhibit was the section of contemporary artists that tried their hands at cubism. the Diego Rivera piece was especially nice. the museum itself was a little large and empty.

Our entire family visited the museum in early December to see a Lego exhibit. The grandchildren loved the special exhibit. We were pleasantly surprised to find follow up hands on ctivities that all three generations enjoyed, creating Lego creations on our own. Afterwards , we found that they held an open art session for children which encouraged family participation to... More

The CMA features wonderful art galleries across a variety of genres, but it's efforts to engage visitors with art-centered activities are particularly successful, in my experience.

We spend a few hours here during a recent visit to Columbus. There was a special exhibition on the sun which I didn't find that interesting and one on Thomas Cole that I did. The overall collection is solid, and the museum is a very manageable size, so it's not at all overwhelming. Definitely worth a visit. The restaurant was... More
