  • A special building with a particular content. Beautiful stairs and beautiful exhibitions. Only on the first floor a museum warden that constantly beside you walk. I have always suffered from when I really, almost obsessed, observed. Luckily the others much more comfortable. Beautiful pieces of art!!

  • I thought I loved contemporary art, but maybe not. Perhaps I'm just not hip enough. I was there on a 1st Saturday of the month when the entrance is free. I was happy about that, even though I did have...  more »
  • Very disappointed in this museum. I purchased tickets ahead of time for my students to visit. When we arrived we were told there was nothing to view. That's right, no art at all. They changed all of t...  more »

  • Interesting architecture regarding the building but also creates lots of wasted space. Very few actual art exhibits and the interactive area is just scissors & papers for kids to make collages... very limited, lots of wasted space and very little actual art. Tried to be nice and leave two stars but really had to be honest, complete waste of time.
  • This museum is overall really unique and interesting. The staff are very friendly and are happy to assist you with anything you need and answer any questions you have. Their gift shop, while not the cheapest place to get stuff (that's kind of expected, though), is just as nice a place to look around as the exhibits. As for the exhibits themselves, I often find them to be a hit or a miss. The second floor always has one or two great interactive exhibit(s) that both kids and adults can enjoy, like making your own collage or writing down on a piece of paper what you imagine your future to be. There's a staircase inside the main staircase that's painted yellow along the floor and walls where cool music echoes around the inside as you go up. The main exhibits wildly vary in terms of artistry. On one side of the coin, the exhibits show something really ingenuitive and imaginative, while in other times, it's the stereotypical pretentious let's-paint-a-black-dot-on-a-white-canvas-and-call-it-art bullcrap. For that, however, it's best to go to the main website and check to see what they have first. If you feel like you don't mind paying money to go see the newest exhibit, then I absolutely recommend this museum for you.
  • Definitely Different! And we got in for free on a first Saturday.
  • Great exposition. I was positive surprised. The neighborhood is lovely.
  • The building architecture is beautiful but there are only 2 relatively small galleries inside. If you're an art lover, I'd highly suggest the Cleveland Museum of Art instead.

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.
