  • They have spent a lot of money on stuff you can find anywhere else. Trying to be a miniature Cleveland Museum is a big mistake. They have sacrificed a unique opportunity to have a museum featuring the...  more »

  • What an amazing resource the AAM is. This is the perfect place to get lost in a world of gorgeously curated works. Every time I leave the museum I feel like a better person. Thanks to the staff for always bringing such great exhibits. Wonderful museum. Also, is it just me or is that building looking cooler over time?
  • A wonderful little museum in downtown Akron. Entrance is free for students and cheap for everyone else. It's certainly not the biggest museum, but it's perfect to fill an hour or two and get an idea about the local art scene. There is a small cafe on the ground floor with rotating coffee and tea flavors at great prices as well as beer and wine happy hour specials. The parking garage across the street is often free on the weekends.
  • Honored to be in a relatively small city that supports a high quality museum in a modern structure that presents a variety of entertainment and educational programs. There is a free day supported by a local art philanthropist. There are children's programs and exceptional changing exhibits, a coffee shop and art store. Park across the street. ..
  • The museum had great works of art. I went on a Thursday, when admission was free, which was nice but I was one of the few people there and I felt like I was being stalked through the galleries by the docents. It was kind of uncomfortable and I felt like I was being pushed through.
  • We are so lucky to have this gem of an art museum right here in Akron. It is smaller but they rotate displays often and there is always something new and interesting to see.
