Half of the museum was closed as they were reading a new exhibit. The exhibits on display were good but very limited in number on the walls. Enjoyed seeing how the older building was renovated and the new part added.

I think we got our wrist bands at 5:30pm when we “checked” in at the front desk. They count how many people come in probably to tell Smuckers. We spent less than 2 hours here. That included us taking our time looking at all the...More

If you enjoy outside entertainment and a great indoor gallery, then head on down to the Akron Art Museum. The summer music outdoors is the Best of the Best. Enjoy a relaxing summer night and take in the Art Museum.

It should take about two hours or so. They have a nice cafe, so you might want to add more time for a snack.
