Was there on Sunday where it is free entry to the museum. Bought tickets to the special exhibitions for $6. The content in the permanent exhibitions was neither a lot nor exceptionally interesting.

So many things for kids and adults alike. Love the puzzles and the post it notes by the art. Great bistros.

The wise citizens of Columbus have ensured that there's a nice art gem in Columbus, with a selection of hits from famous names. If you're a bit of a museum goer you can even challenge yourself by trying to name the artist before sneaking a peek at the write-up. You'll know most of them, from Stella to van Dyke to... More

Been a while since my son was in school, but we took several trips to the Museum. It was a very pleasurable experience and enjoyed it tremendously.

When I visited the main gallery had a travelling exhibit I had seen elsewhere, so I focused on the side galleries. They were wonderful, particularly on the second floor. Restaurant is very nice. Outdoor sculpture Garden is kinda sparse, but will likely evolve.

Have not been here in years, stopped by recently to see how the new addition looked. Loved it, the new addition really opens up the museum better, and the natural lighting makes the paintings stand out more
