I had such a great time. They have so much to view. They had a wide variety of works of art. They had so many historical things that highlight Columbus. They had such beautiful art and had great details about the pieces. This was a wonderful outing and I recommend anyone that enjoys art to come and enjoy the museum. It's got something for everyone.
Great local art museum, fun kids room with all hands on. We could have stayed there for hours! Don’t forget to take a walk outside to view the sculptures. Moving into the area it was nice to learn about the local history and that exhibit was top notch! The museum is free and great for families!
