Of course the art itself is worth a trip to the art museum. The buiding itself is also very interesting. The Cincinnati Art Museum is one of Cincinnati's gems that should be visisted by everyone who comes to Cincinnati. There are works of art that will appeal to everyone!!

“we only had to pay for parking”
Reviewed April 18, 2013

We had never been to this area of Cincinnati. The art museum is situated high above the downtown area and the nearby neighborhood was fun to see. I loved the art museum. There was a wide variety of art to view.

“A little disappointing.”
Reviewed April 17, 2013 via mobile

After reading reviews of this museum I had to say that I was a little disappointed. They have a wide ranging collection but not alot of depth, having said this I would still recommend a visit here. The best thing is that the museum is free, if you like modern art check out the nice Josef Albers prints, fabulous!

“A Beautiful Location for Amazing Art”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

The Cincinnati Art museum is a lovely museum with some great collections. My nine year old son was particulary impressed with the antiquity collections and I was excited to point out paitings by Monet, Renior, and Picasso.

With free admission, a great scavenger hunt to engage kids and adults alike, as well as the proximity to the reflecting pool and Krohn Conservatory, the art museum is a must see for travelers and locals alike!
