Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    This museum is amazing! Aerial flight covered from Wright brothers to current times. I learned more about war history here than in school. On par with Smithsonian in my opinion with less crowds! One day is not enough time so plan on two days or at least a day and a half. Recommend leaving for lunch and returning. Food options on site are limited to 2 areas. Only sealed bottled water can be brought inside. Lots of walking and standing so wear comfortable shoes. The staff and volunteers are very informative. Admission and parking are free.

    Our first road trip since my partner retired and this was one of two things he wanted to do.

    Bought tickets online for a 10 AM entry, got there an hour early to make sure we could find handicap parking (lucked out…right across from the entrance!), used the ParkMobile app to pay for parking so change wasn’t needed and entered a few minutes before 10

    Started at level 0…it does start with hip hop…which is crazy but keep on going! There is a maze of wonderful things to see down there! We spent the majority of time on this level. There are elevators and escalators to help you get around.

    Of course, he made the obligatory stop at the gift shop!

    We were blown away by the quality of this museum. I’ve been to large museums in many countries on 3 continents. The Cleveland Museum of Art is truly world class. And it’s free for the main areas. Great use of technology and an awesome open area between the halls. You need at least 2 hours for a quick walk and view, probably need 3 hours or perhaps more to grab a snack or beverage and enjoy the architecture as a nice break. And to be clear, I’m not a big art guy - just enjoy a nice stroll though a major art museum once in a while. We found street parking near the south entrance was easy to find and cost $0.75 in coin per hour.

    It's probably the best amusement park I've been to. It's a lot of walking from my experience, though. Some of the best coasters I've ever rode. If you're a coaster enthusiast, this is the place, I can't speak much to the lines as I had fast pass.

    This was a very cool place to go. They sell all kinds of fresh meat, seafood, and fruit. There's a place in there that made good crepes as well. If you're into markets I would definitely come check this out.

    The Cincinnati Zoo, the second oldest zoo in the United States. In my travels, I try to support zoos.

    I saw the bald eagles, elephants, red panda, kangaroos, giraffes, etc. The kangaroos exhibit was my favorite because you get to walk through their habitat with no fence.

    A friend of mine told me about Fiona so I went and met her. She’s their famous hippo. Learning about her incredible journey from a premature baby to a thriving adult was awesome. So cute.

    Always love Columbus Zoo, so many Animals and exhibits. Also great walking if you need a little exercise. My favorite was the birds to feed.

    Fun experience! Buy your tickets in the gift shop and you get to tour the entire house (including the back yard) and museum across the street. I was surprised that we were allowed to roam all over the inside of the house, handle any items in the house and take any pictures we wanted for approximately 10 minutes! Lots of great photo opportunities! Our tour guide was enthusiastic and fun! Would definitely recommend a visit if you love the movie as much as I do!

    Even though it was 95degrees, we were able to get seats in the shade. I don’t know how some of the elderly can stay out in the heat. It’s a ballgame, prices of water, soda and food is very expensive. Eat before you go

    This is a great place if you like exploring gardens. They did a really nice job both inside and out with lots of cool spaces and paths to discover. If you're a veteran, you get a discounted ticket and parking is free for everyone. Kids and adults should like this place as it has something for everyone.

    The trails here are excellent, lots of interesting formations and tons of waterfalls. Yes it can be crowded, but if you come early you can avoid them.

    Rainy day but still fun to shop. So many shops to see. Loved it! Our favorite was the Amazon style shop, such a cool concept.

    A great way to spend a rainy day.
