The Cleveland Museum of Art, Cleveland

Must see · 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. Plan my Cleveland trip by asking Inspirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

  • We spent 4 amazing hours here & definitely didn’t see everything. My favorite part was the American Collection. My husband enjoyed the etchings & the armor. Bonus, it’s free, just pay to park...  more »
  • A very nice museum of arts with lots of different galeries of painters and other. You have to have few hours to see everthing. Nice cafe.  more »
  • Very nice museum with lots of variety. The price was right (free!). The staff in the gift show were wonderful. Some of the staff in the museum a bit less. All in all a nice experience.  more »
  • My son and I visit the museum every year on our birthdays. It's free to enter, but parking is about $13. It's worth every penny. How often are you going to be able to view a Jackson Pollock in your lifetime? When I leave here I'm sad to to, but rejuvenated creatively and spiritually. An amazing museum.
  • Beautiful museum and it’s free! The art gardens are also well worth a walk through. Situated in wade oval overlooking the wade lagoon, this museum is an important part of University Circle and a must-see for anyone visiting Cleveland. If you have only a short time, I recommend picking up their guide for top works of art to see. Also, be sure to check out their schedule for programming and special exhibits because they always do a fabulous job!
  • Love it. Nice selection of art and friendly staff. Beautiful building with cool addition and wonderful enclosed indoor courtyard is nice for taking a break. Really worth a visit when in the area. Several Van Goghs and lots of cool modern and Indian art. Nice mixture of many nationalities and eras. Give yourself a solid 4 hours to check it all out.
  • I was able to attend the museum during the talk festival in September and it is a fantastic event. I met so many kind people and the landscape and outdoor area was lovely. It was a beautiful place to enjoy art and experience new people. And it’s in an area that has so many other attractions all within walking distance that it is a wonderful way to spend a weekend
  • Awesome for being free. Their was a lot of everything here. The place is very clean and nice. I really like that they have some stuff out of glass and displayed so you can get close. Dont touch anything! Highly recommend.
