  • Great exhibits and an awesome building. They do a lot of great work for the community, and it's an affordable activity that gets you out in downtown. I was very impressed by the collections here, and have been several times. Check out their website to see what exhibits are in, because they change pretty frequently.
  • The lead docent - Gina was Amazing! If you take a guided tour they will use several props to draw you further into the experience! Definitely check out often to see some amazing Ohio artists and many incredible works from deeply talented artists that regularly contribute from all across the nation! Right now Thursdays are free, but if you can't make it on a Thursday the experience will still be well worth it!
  • A great experience and the Hi Fructose exhibition was worth the admission. Nice little souvenir shop and well.
  • Really nice selection of artwork. They get really cool exhibits. They have a colonial sort of style of art and they have more modern art that is there permanently.
  • A great museum for contemporary art and cool events. They always have something interesting. Good food and coffee in the cafe too.
