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.
The Cleveland Museum of Art reviews
There wasn't enough time for me to see everything. I will definitely go back. I am hoping the staff is a bit friendlier next time, though. more »
The perfect way to spend a rainy day. The medieval European art exhibit was awesome, I felt as if I was in a European gallery. So worth the visit!! 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!
