  • We were lucky to visit on a day with free day (bonus for travellers on a budget!) and not crowded. This allowed us to look at the art and reflect or debate the meaning or inspiration. We spent about 9...  more »

  • Really Interesting. The architect is unique inside and out. A great place to host an event.
  • I know some people love opera, while others prefer gangsta rap. I personally love lots of styles of music but don't like either of those two styles. I guess fine art is the same. I love the impressionists, the masters, and enjoy cubist and modern art.That said, I just don't "get" a lot of CONTEMPORARY art. So while I appreciate the MOCA space, the art inside didn't move me.
  • Great contemporary art institution in Cleveland that everyone should visit. It is a non collecting musium so the shows are always changing and there are new exhibits every time that you go back.
  • Very contemporary. Not like any museum I have ever been to before.
  • Although this is a small museum, their collection is not permanent, and travels. This means that there will usually always be something new when you go. I was able to see Lu Yang's Delusional Mandala, and much more. I've been to the Cleveland Museum of Art, but something about the MOCA, I really enjoyed. There were very few people in the museum at the time of me going, and the atmosphere and exhibitions whispered contemporary art to me. Each room had it's own personality almost, some being erotic. Overall, I highly recommend this museum!

Where to stay in Cleveland

Most of Cleveland's hotels are located in downtown, though you can also plenty of comfortable and affordable rooms in the city's outlying neighborhoods. Many downtown hotels offer discounted weekend rates and deals that include tickets to some of the city's major attractions, but if you prefer to stay away from the central part of town, consider the neighborhoods east of the Cuyahoga River. Staying in this part of Cleveland allows you easy access to the city's cultural district, renowned for its museums, galleries, and parks.
