Columbia Museum of Art reviews
Stopped in traveling through Columbia. What a find! Was shocked to realize Botticelli Nativity was part of permanent collection. And then the M C Escher exhibit. Don't miss this museum more »
Here again, I think I reviewed this place on TA last year (before my account got screwed up...). We visited in January of 2020 to see a Van Gogh exhibit (on its final weekend). Visiting was jarring..... more »
Great way to spend a Saturday afternoon out of the heat! Staff was very friendly and helpful. Wide variety of art on display. Took 2 children, ages 6 & 8, and they enjoyed the museum, especially The Cross Hatch (which has great interactive things for both kids and adults to do). And the plaza outside is great with some shade and seating for kids.
I’ve been going to this museum since I was a kid. I’ve since grown up and become an art teacher out of state. While visiting Columbia this summer I heard about the inflatable exhibit and wanted to check it out. The museum is AMAZING. The best I’ve ever seen it. The temporary exhibit was so great. Interactive art is one of my favorite art forms. And I appreciated the video about how the pieces were planned out and created. I was also happy to see many different cultures represented throughout the museum. I was so impressed with the upstairs. I love the interactive activities they’ve added (for example, “is this art?”) The post war and contemporary rooms were so great to see, because I think the museum was lacking modern/contemporary art for some time. I had such a great time and I’m so glad CMA is widening its selection!
