absolute gem. it really is an absolute hidden treasure in the midwest. the collection is one of the best and the exhibits are world class. for 2 days of adventure, take time to visit the natural history museum located in the same oval, great fun for the kids!
One of the nation's finest art collections right on the shores of Lake Erie..
Founded in 1916 "for the benefit of all the people forever," the Cleveland Museum of Art houses one of the finest collections in North America, boasting more than 30,000 works encompassing 5,000 years. Natural lighting streams in to further enhance the great works, from ancient Egyptian pieces to contemporary art. The museum itself is an architectural crown jewel overlooking a Grecian-style courtyard and has been praised by critics worldwide for its originality and creativity. All this, plus concerts, lectures, classes and a great film series.
The museum's medieval gallery provides ample thrills, showcasing arms and armor, brass tombs and artifacts from the age of King Arthur. Or linger in the Italian Renaissance gallery, surrounded by bold oil paintings and murals depicting the holy family and many a martyred saint.
Worth the money? IT's FREE!. wow- a free museum-adn a great one at that-you can't beat it!!!!! It's a wonderful, clean and big museum. take at least a full day-if not two to appreciate all that they have to offer. Take a picnic lunch and sit out in the beautiful gardens!
Check it out. If you are an art lover you must visit!! Good day trip.
World Class Art at an Unbeatable Price!. What can I say? It's got magnificent displays, wonderful works of Art, and a gorgeous garden (when it's not under reconsrtruction), and best of all it's FREE! It's a great place to bring kids and adults alike (try the armor room or the modern art section with the kids, they'll love it). A free art museum is a rare commodity, especially one that's as high quality as the Cleveland Museum of Art, so make sure you go often!
art, art, more art. A must see. The variety is amazing. Be sure to put a whole day aside for viewing
Excellent museum. I went to this museum for the first time last winter. I can't believe I had never been there before. The exhibits are awesome. Way better than the history museum!
simply the best.
there is simply nothing else to compare this art
museum to in this part of the country....even what
is not on exhibit is unreal.
A museum for all people. I have been art museums all over the US, and this is without a doubt my favorite. Classical, contemporary, paintings, sculptures.... any style you prefer is showcased there. With exhibitions of original artists (even MONET!) changing every month, this museum is sure to surprise even the everyday visitor. I would reccomend this museum to EVERYONE!
What a Gem - and it's free!. In a city with many unique and fabulous museums, the Museum of Art must take first place. One of the three best "balanced" art museums in the nation, it also boasts the continent's finest collection of Chinese art, Colonial American pewter (with examples by Paul Revere), significant medieval European tapestry, and European armour. The annual May Show is one of the most prestigious venues for young, emerging talents in the American art scene. One can listen to free organ recitals on the biggest pipe organ in the area in the museum auditorium (which is also home to a performing arts series held during the Fall/Winter concert season featuring renowned musicians from throughout the world). Best of all, it is the only major museum in America that is free to enter! But really now, do contribute at least a few dollars when you visit to help support this cultural treasure.
