Art Museum Museum
World-renowned for its Asian and Egyptian collections, The Cleveland Museum of Art remains free to the public, as it was originally intended to be, through one of the largest endowments in the country. The museum has more than 40,000 works permanently on display, along with exceptional traveling exhibitions. The artwork inside the museum and the museum's architecture are often equally enticing for visitors. The building was built in the Beaux Arts style using neoclassical white marble, which has stood the test of time over the last hundred years. The museum and Wade Park, which surrounds it, are currently on the National Register of Historic Places.

  • They have done an amazing job with this museum. It is a world class art museum that is free with the exception of special exhibits. We went on a Friday night(open until 9) the first day we arrived in ...  more »

  • 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!
  • The breadth and depth of the collections here are beyond surprising. I really appreciated the Greek and near East collections, as well as their current photography exhibit. They have tremendous works from all over the world and through all ages. It's truly a blend of anthropology and fine art. Last, the facility is stunning. The center courtyard is breathtaking, and the spaces for the exhibits are superb. This pace is a gem.
  • Great Art Museum without many great pieces, even a lot of the modern art seems to have purpose and a story to help museum goers who aren't art analysts to find out the purpose of that piece, something​ really hard to do. And it's free and parking is relatively cheap and there's a good restaurant inside. Overall a great place.
  • The fact that the main exhibitions here are free is fantastic. Our first time visiting was memorable. We were so moved by everything we saw. You could easily spend a few hours here looking at all the wonderful pieces. We will definitely be back.
  • I've often touted the Toledo Museum of Art as the best art museum around, rivaling the best in the world. However, this museum may have toppled Toledo. It is amazing and beautiful. Forget the other attractions in the area and spend a day here, you won't regret it.
