What a wonderful weekly trip ... go for brunch and then walk through to become acquainted with the artwork of the greats, as well as some who are new to the art scene. The architecture is amazing on top of everything else!

Delightful way to spend an afternoon. Broad-based collection. Building is confusing to navigate, though. Need a better map.

Cincinnati Art Museum was outstanding! So many exhibitions to see including 30 Americans, Not in New York, and permanent collections. Wear comfortable shoes walking the two floors with over sixty thousand pieces.

I have to say I was a little worried about bringing two young girls to a quiet art museum. However, my fears were unfounded. The CAM had this really cool scavenger hunt sheet we could work on. If the girls completed it correctly then the CAM staff rewarded the girl with a small prize. It was great and so was... More

Loved this museum! Lots of history and yet seems so modern. The entire museum is kept in immaculate shape. There is a small cafe inside the museum to enjoy brunch or lunch, probably because you could spend hours and hours roaming the halls of this place. I really enjoyed my time there and I am not a huge museum goer.

This is an absolutely free attraction located in Eden Park. I visited especially for the 30 Americans exhibit. It is phenomenal! I specifically appreciated the 30 Americans Forum, where you can go to reflect on what you saw. A true must see! The Egyptian art including the mummies and the interactive tables provided another way to learn about the history.... More

This museum covers everything from ancient artifacts to modern art, all in one beautiful, modern facility. Best of all, they do not charge any entry fee, only a small fee for parking.

this is NOT the art institute (chicago) or sfmoma (san francisco) or such a top museum. but their curators for modern art have been excellent --- scope and depth for modern art is good; OK these are not the top pieces, but they are very good and you can see the depth and breadth of modern art here. their 'old...

Our group really enjoyed the art museum. We had a guided tour which really helped the boys stay engaged (rather than just letting them race through the museum). The gift shop is great. And our lunch at the cafe was delicious.

It was going to be a rainy and hot day, so I chose to go to the Cincinnati art museum. There is a very good collection of American art including furniture and ceramics; as well as a survey of Renaissance, Impressionism, European, Asian, and modern art styles. I also got the see the special exhibits of 30 Americans and Not... More
