My girlfriend loves museums. She wanted to go. She says it's the best museum she has been in except for D.C. There were many pictures and paintings but also artifacts, lots and lots of artifacts. The place to eat in the museum was pricy and very slow, but the food was good. Recommend for sure if you like museums at... More

I've been travelling in and out of Cleveland for decades, but never made time for this museum - wish I'd visited much sooner. Beautiful facility, amazing collection, and it is free! People forget that more than a century ago, Cleveland was one of the leading business centers in the world, with scores of millionaires. Many of them were patrons of... More

Not only are there some incredible pieces, artifacts, and displays from a vast variety of times and places, it's SO aesthetically pleasing, SO easy to get into, such a fair price to visit, and SO under-utilized by the locals, it is one of THE best museums of ANY kind in the US. It's 15 minutes from the Rock and Roll... More

Came for the new exhibit, beautiful and rare catholic church vestments. Within the permanent collection, The medieval armor room, impressionist gallery, and mesoamerican artifacts are fantastic. Decent food cafeteria with three options. Lunchtime is slow for service. The museum layout is very open and comfortable. Not enough time in one day to enjoy it all!

During my visit to Cleveland for Thanksgiving, my partner and I visited the Museum of Art. There is no entrance fee (except for some special exhibits). The architecture is an amazing mix of old and new with a huge atrium connecting the original structure with a modern addition. Our view sit was brief so we focused on several of the... More

What a beautiful museum. An eclectic collection, starting with Rodin's "Thinker" at the front door, excellent cafeteria and a lovely way to spend a day or at least an afternoon.

I grew up in the Cleveland area but have traveled all over the world. I've had the opportunity to visit many well known museums in my travels but the Cleveland museum of art is still on my favorites list. They always have a new exhibit to visit and plenty of pleasant staff members to help you get the most out... More

The Cleveland Museum stands majestically with it's neighbors, Severence Hall- home of the world renowned Cleveland Orchestra, as well as the Botanical Gardens and the Case Western Reserve Historical Society. As you enter, the natural light from the atrium ceiling draws you into an amazing space. Open and free, you see real trees growing and possibly a display, exhibit, or... More
