This spectacular facility is beyond words. There may be bigger and more prestigious museums but very few compare with this one. An incredible collection set in this newly expanded space is a wonderful place to spend the afternoon or even the evening when they host events. The new Ames Atrium serves as the focal point and town center for a... More

Spacious, well lit and welcoming. The Cleveland Museum of Art is a great afternoon destination. After visiting the Mogul exhibit, we had lunch at the in-house cafe. Fresh ingredients and wonderful variety.

The whole museum is wonderful and inspiring but every time I go I always visit the exhibit with the knights and their armor. It is fascinating and reminds me of when I went to the museum on school trips. Also be sure to have lunch or dinner at the museum. Food is delicious!

The cafe, though a little expensive,... More
