This museum surprised us with the depth and breadth of their collection. Not only do they have art from most of the heavy-hitters from the turn of each century, but their pieces from world antiquity were pretty solid! We loved every moment here, and made sure to pick up souvenirs to help us to remember the place often.

This is always a great place to go if you have nothing going on. The museum is free but you pay extra for special exhibitions. I've been here many, many times and will continue to visit.

A great place to spend an afternoon. Cameras are welcome in many of the exhibits as long as a flash is not used.

I arrived at the museum at the later morning of a cold Sunday morning. It was great to come to the main hall and enjoy some of the lovely heat. The museum might become one of my favourites as I was really impressed. The temporary exhibition about fashion was well set up and lovely to see. The main museum did... More

I love this place! It is free for everybody! The only cost is if you want to see a traveling exhibit. Members have privileges like wine tastings or private lectures. Not the best place for rowdy or unattended kids. Hours are weird, so check before you go.

Thanks to an endowment, visitors to the Cincinnati Art Museum can enjoy this treasure of art for free. There is a wide variety of art, from ancient Syria and Iraq to and an amazing Rookwood Pottery collection, to contemporary art and frequent special exhibits. Docent tours are also a wonderful addition for visitors.

Grandkids (all 5) enjoyed the scavenger hunt thru the museum! It was well paced and very educational for ages 3 thru 11. We had an art teacher, (very good friend ) accompany us,which made it that much more of a valuable lesson. The first floor section for families is to be commended. The museum is such a beautiful treasure for... More

Had a couple of hours free as we traveled into Cincinnati and decided to visit the Cincinnati Art Museum. We were impressed with the range of the collection, a nice sampling of art from the Antiquities, through the Classical period to modern works. The galleries of Asian and Middle Eastern art, sculpture and wall carvings and decorations were notable. There... More
