  • Incredible exhibition, nice experience. Also, good point about this place - it's for free which personally surprised me a lot 
  • If you love architecture - you'll be impressed by this Zaha Hadid's piece of art. If you like modern art museums in general - you'll love this place. Compared to similar museums in Louisville, Philly and even Chicago, CAC wins them all.
  • Note: The cafe is open early, but the gallery doesn't open until 10 am. I hadn't been back since the opening, and love the addition of café and gift shop in the lower lobby. The exhibits here are top quality and explore many expressions of art. Def' a gem in Cincinnati's art scene.
  • Multi-level building with unique arcitecture. Has a small black-box performance space for bands & other shows, and a gallery for visual art exhibitions and installations.
  • Really cool place. Free to get in. Alot of steps. Big place.
  • beautiful building with a really cafe space. the exhibitions are always changing and there really is something for everyone!
