The Cincinnati Art Museum is very nice! It has plenty of art on view. We spent 2 hours there. The interactive space for families was nice too. You can create art with your family there. They have drying racks for your child's creations too. We picked it up after we had finished for the day.

This museum was a short walk from our hotel. We only had about an hour to visit before it closed. Lots of artwork to see, but we were limited by time. I would go back again to finish the tour. It was free. Everyone was nice.

We love going here, excellent staff and always great rotating exhibits to see. Be sure to arrive early if you are going to the free evening events, it can be very very difficult to find parking.

We love this museum and the family education center is just wonderful for children! Such an impressive collection of art throughout history and you can literally spend hours here. A must see.

Art museums aren't usually my favorite thing, but this one was the best I've been to. It had a wide variety of classic and modern art. Local artists were featured, as well. General admission and parking is free, which is an awesome value. The gift shop is small but has plenty of cool and different souvenirs.

What an amazing asset to the City of Cincinnati! Beautiful setting and facility, very nice collection, friendly staff, and completely FREE. Make a day of it, or stop by for a quick wander.

Cincinnati is fortunate to have such a nice art museum. The collection is small, however, it is a really nice collection. The special exhibits they bring in throughout the year keep the museum fresh and offer people in Cincinnati the chance to see some World Class art right in our own back yard.

My guy and I took a trip to Cinci for my birthday. We were hoping for warmer weather but had inside plans as a backup, one of which was the museum. I'm happy we took time to visit, the architecture of the building alone is worth the visit. The collections are excellent, we especially enjoyed the American artists. Great rainy... More

If you enjoy Japanese armor and Japanese prints this is your time to go see this exhibit at the Cincinnati Art Museum. It's a $10 fee/$5 seniors for this exhibit. Remember, parking and the permanent exhibits are free. That's a bargain. Plus, this is in beautiful Eden Park. Go early before the crowd arrives in order to be able to... More

Our visit to the Vincent Van Gogh (1853-1890) Sous Bois show was inspired. The feature of the show was one of the paintings that he completed in the last 60 days of his life, Undergrowth with Two Figures. While this painting is part of the permanent collection, it was the culminating piece of a show that highlighted the apex of... More
