Small museum in a Cass Gilbert building with an eclectic collection of paintings and artifacts. Beautifully curated exhibits celebrating their 100th year. Unique examples of genres and artists. A must visit (free admission) when in the area.

The Allen Memorial Art Museum on the campus of Oberlin College is absolutely incredible. The museum is quite small, but packs an impressive punch. A few highlights include; 'Young Girl Seated' by Henri Matisse, 'Green Dream' by Marc Chagall and 'Nude with a Coral Necklace'...More

Amazing Cass Gilbert Art Museum. The inside is a study in arches. The ceiling is magnificent. The art collection is wonderful as well, but the building is not to be missed.

My daughter and I decided to visit Oberlin one day while she was on thanksgiving break and before she returned to college for EXAMS. This is a gem, growing up around here, I never knew it was here. It is something not to miss.

Incredible collection. Brilliant curators. Beautiful display. This museum has so much to offer anyone from the casual visitor to the focused academic. Next to the Conservatory, it's the best thing about Oberlin.
