We've been coming here for many years but recently they have had very interesting exhibits. Some local shows but also Smithsonian sponsored material, too. Worth a visit!

For small museum they have a nice collection. It is a hidden gem for sure. We enjoyed the Art 360°: Contemporary Art Hatching Across Ohio exhibit in January 2018.

A smaller museum with very interesting special exhibitions. The general collection is focused on American and local artists. Definitely worth a visit when you are in the area. Plan on about an hour to see all the galleries.

The gallery space is very large with several rooms. Each time I have been here the exhibits are a little different. The large gallery is used for traveling exhibits and artists spotlight shows. There are also art classes for any age.
