“Free! Okay, you pay for parking...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014 via mobile

This is a great museum-world class actually. The art is second to none and displayed in a most appropriate and delightful setting. Each room is a pleasant surprise and the flow of the art just works. You pay for parking, $5 I think, and admission is free to the museum. If you spend around $10 in the gift shop, parking is free. For a hit summer day, the visit to this museum was, well....refreshing! Go and enjoy!

“A must see!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

The Art Museum is free access and should be visited at least once..... Free wifi also, (haha). The staff was very friendly. The displays were amazing. Would definitely go again because there's always something new to learn about.

“Art Museum - Enjoyable, not overwhelming”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

The Cincinnati Art Museum has a lovely setting in Eden Park. The collection includes a wide range of paintings and sculptures from all over the world, but also features works by local artists. It's easy to navigate and enjoy a range of types of artwork without being too overwhelming.

“A educational & intelectual place to visit.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014

I believe this museum is free to visit. check their website. Last I knew an endowment had made this possible. There may be a parking fee though. They have different displays so do check their website. Otherwise, there are several enormous rooms up & down with displays from ancient to modern. Get some culture and enjoy a visit. We have eaten in their cafe and thought it was good.
