  • This museum could be something great, but it's dirty. Rumor has it that it's manifesting itself into something great. I sure hope so, it does have so much potential. Look at Strong Museum in Rochester...  more »
  • There is currently NO Children's museum in Cleveland. One can only hope eventually they will finish and reopen the new location.  more »

  • Had a great time visiting with my 4 year old niece. We enjoyed looking at the paintings and having lunch. The creamy tomato soup at the cafe was the best tomato soup that I've had in years. Home baked cookies and nice Mediterranean salads. A bit expensive, but for a once and a while treat a nice day out. We enjoyed the museum, while my 10 year old son took his first art class, "Made In America". Overall great day!
  • Beautiful artwork and pieces. We walked around for an hour thinking we saw it all only to realize we only looked at 1 of 4 wings of the building. No charge and yet everything is immaculately taken care of. Hidden sensors guard the pieces so as not to detract from the pieces. I will be back to see the rest.
  • Lots of beautiful art and displays! There are often interesting special exhibits as well. Cafe is slightly over-priced but is super tasty and did not disappoint. The museums main exhibits are free. There is a coat check at the lobby and a parking garage next to the museum. The building itself is gorgeous (especially the open courtyard space)! Definitely worth visiting!
  • What can you say about one of the best, highest rated museum in the country? I have been a member for years and am still amazed every time I visit. Don't even get me started on the events! Chalk Festival is a must see event. Ever want to learn from real artists? Check out the Adult Studios.
  • One of the best art museums in the world - and that's not an exaggeration. Their permanent collection contains some of the finest works of history. An all around asset to Cleveland with great events, special exhibitions, and a fantastic building to explore.
