  • 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.
  • An incredible Museum with an interesting variety of Art It is an incredibly kid friendly museum with many Hands-On opportunities. The programming for children in art classes are out of this world. Thank you Akron Art Museum!
  • Art looks very cool n i saw some art that can open my mind even more
  • 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.
