I've been coming to the Clevalend Museum since I was a child. I've travelled all over the world and seen art museums large and small, famous and obscure and time has only deepened my appreciation for this museum. The recent expansion and remodeling has made it a better space and allowed them to show more of their collection. The contemporary... More

Do you have an afternoon to spend in Cleveland? Need a free attraction for a tight travel budget? For both locals and visitors, why not visit the art museum for an hour or two or more?! I do not have the best eyes for art but I appreciate the variety of exhibits at the museum. Art pieces in quite literally... More

I fall in love again each time I go to the museum. The renovations are spectacular, the exhibits are gorgeous - lighting, arrangements, depth and breadth of collections, all superb. Did you know that they have a slide collection that can be borrowed? So many treasures to discover.

A highlight of Cleveland tourism, the newly renovated art museum boasts artifacts several hundred years old thru current art. The no-fee admission includes interactive displays where visitors can download background info on thousands of pieces. Enjoy the many exhibits and a freshly prepared meal in the massive entry hall. Tasty and impressive!

I love been to this museum for several exhibitions. They are the best! The art museum is on Museum Campus of Cleveland, so there are so many other museums to visit when you are in the area. The Botonical Gardens are close by as well!

This is the jewel of Cleveland OH. It is normally free to the public. They have a event called MIX on the first Friday of every month with a open bar and entertainment in the atrium.

The Cleveland Museum of Art is a treasure! As an artist myself, I often go and walk the galleries of the permanent collections. They have a wonderful new asian gallery and a growing contemporary collection. I might add that this museum is free to all except for special exhibitions. The entire university circle area is great to walk around and... More

Very nice remodel, my 12 years loved the modern art and the interactive technology items. The cafe is way overpriced but quality food.

The CMA is rated second to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC. I've visited many of the museums with high rankings, frequently visiting the Met during the years that I lived in NYC. The CMA deserves its reputation. They have an outstanding permanent collection of paintings from the Impressionist era - Renoir, Degas, Cassatt, and more. And the museum... More
