“Love the Medieval Armory Gallery”
Reviewed December 25, 2012

Cleveland Museum of Art houses one of the finest collections of Medieval armory in the U.S. The halls surrounding this gallery is of equal quality, and cleanly organizes European and American paintings by country and era. We always plan to visit the museum's lower level but never seem to have enough time. The gift shop has wonderful jewelry, accessories, books, toys and decorative items that reflect the uniqueness of the museum collections. Hoping our next visit will allow for a whole day of exploring.

“magnificent collection of art”
Reviewed December 17, 2012

I love spending the day at the Cleveland Museum of Art as every time I go I see something new. I am fascinated by Egypt and their display of items from ancient Egypt holds my attention for a long time. The restaurant that is inside the museum is a real treat as it has unique foods at very reasonable prices. iIhighly recommend that you spend a day there.

“Awesome Museum and it's Free”
Reviewed December 13, 2012

This museum is really quite nice and it is a free attraction which means if you live in the Cleveland area, you should visit several times as you will not be able to take in everything in one go.. They constantly are adding stuff as well and have special exhibits as well. I saw the Wari exhibit the Balloons in a Room and some months ago I went to the Rembrandt.. Some of the special exhibits you have to pay for.. but they are well worth it.. Photography isnt generally allowed so make sure to ask before taking any pictures.
