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 Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

My family and I were visiting Cleveland for a few days. We had a few hours free and decided to check out the Cleveland Museum of Art. We really enjoyed this museum. We only wished we would have had mo... more »
If I could give more than 5 stars I would! I think it’s wonderful that admission is free for all. I remember visiting as a child on a field trip for school and I was absolutely mesmerized by the look of the original building. Seeing it with the new stuff now makes it that much better. It was a phenomenal experience and I can’t wait to visit again. Everything is so clean, pristine, and absolutely breathtaking!
The Cleveland Art Museum is an amazing place to visit. After one trip, I knew I hadn't seen the whole thing and I could go back just to reexamine what I did see, due to the shear volume of what was around me. The museum itself is a beautiful building with a modern expansion, literally melding old and new art styles just housing the exhibits. Upon my second visit, I realized that the part I made it halfway through was only about half of the museum! Long story short, I will be able to come back probably a dozen times and see new things or get more out of what I had already seen prior. This isn't even mentioning the staff. The staff is nothing short of a joy to be around. They are helpful, cheery, and they offer a wide array of services, including free coat check. My first visit, we had an injury- the person I was visiting with cut there ankle on a downed street sign (it was a very bloody mess). We made it to the museum and she went to clean up in the bathroom. After ten minutes I went looking for her and found four employees tending to her with a Med kit and offer her anything they thought might be helpful (they also took care of the sign). This is a must go in Cleveland.
