Trip Advisor does not recognize the existence of Schokko Art Café in CMA, so I will leave a review of this outstanding part of the newly remodeled wing. As all In Central Ohio know, the name Cameron Mitchell behind a dining establishment is a very good thing. His newest creation, Schokko Art Café at the CMA is no exception. It... More

Spent most of yesterday afternoon viewing the great art at this place. Best kept secret in Columbus and a nice restaurant as well. Sundays are FREE, weeekdays are expensive $14 but less crowded. Highly recommend.

We came to Columbus a day early just to spend time... More

The new addition to the museum is very nice. The children's learning center has a lot of creative projects (best for school aged children)

This was my second visit to this museum... outstanding. This time they had a fabulous Lego exhibit which my grandson insisted I see with him. We had dinner at the Cafe in the museum which was lovely - beautiful and inviting room. Don't miss out on this gem.

My husband and I toured through the CMA in an afternoon and had a great time. The art is interesting and well displayed throughout. There were pieces that each of us were intrigued by and I am very interested to bring our teens through and see it again through their eyes! Lunch in the café restaurant on site was very,... More
