Such a beautiful museum! It has a unique system of viewing and creating your own tour. First go to the section on the first floor near the atrium and get your iPad ready, or rent one. The able attendant will help you and set up a specific tour to your tastes. There's so much to see, but try to see the Impressionists section. It's marvelous.

Absolutely superb facility. Located in the University Circle museum district. Larger than I expected, with many different forms of art. I recommend at least 4 hours to see the entire museum. Center courtyard is very large and completed covered atrium, I imagine it's pleasant to sit even in winter. Best part for me was the cafe. This wasn't cold sandwhiches and bottled drinks, this was top notch food at a very reasonable price. Staff all over the place and very helpful.

The Cleveland Museum of Art is considered one of the best art museums in the country and it's FREE! Free is always good. They have also just finished several additions to the original museum and they alone are worth seeing. Many great collections to view and there are daily tours. A gem in the University Circle area of Cleveland.

It was love at first sight for me. The collections were mind blowing. The child in me was super excited after seeing the interactive area at the entrance of the museum. I even tried to redo Picasso.
They also have a nice cafeteria.

There is so much to see for every member if the family. My children loved the experience as we leisurely walked the museum. They have a great gift shop and cafe. Within walking distance to other museums and the botanical gardens.
