  • Very good museum, especially the modern art collection. We went on Sunday and found out that admission was free - an added bonus, although we'd had happily paid  more »
  • Interesting, but no where on the level of an art museum, such as Chicago or others. Not a very good mix of artwork presentations. Little bit of artwork on large canvas of walls.  more »
  • It was our first visit and we had a nice time. We have a 9 month old so we didn't get to do the entire place, but we found a lot of hands on activities that she will benefit from as she grows up! Sund...  more »

  • We found this place on a Sunday when it was free entrance. They have some very fine pieces of art like some of my favorite artist Monet. Was surprised Columbus can afford to have a museum like this. Really enjoyed the kids/hands-on-stuff... they had to tell us to leave when they were closing and we were still engrossed in meant for kids activities :) Also really good cafe - and that it's pricey is to be expected at a place like this I suppose.
  • Wonderful day spend walking around the museum. The kids loved it! I'm so happy to see their young mind filled with so much positive information and not focused on their electronics.
  • After moving to Columbus about ten years ago I started going to the Art museum on a regular basis as I was very impressed by some of the very famous art that is displayed there. There is even a Van Gough believe it or not. I've had the privilege of seeing many museums in my life including the Louvre, and this one ranks as one of the best. If you really like art this is one of the best Art museums in the country. There has been a lot of renovation recently and a lot of modern art has been added.
  • Well designed, perfect size to see all in one visit. Great selection of fine art. The cafe and gift shop are worth stopping in.
  • Love it here! The new wing is great, it is focused on more modern art vs the older section of the museum. There are interesting things for everyone to see, and the kids area is awesome!

Where to stay in Columbus

Hotels in the central part of town not only keep you close to all of the city's major attractions, but also provide you with modern amenities that include 24-hour room service, fitness centers, spa services, and on-site restaurants and bars.
