The Columbus Art Museum is a fantastic use of time. Not only is admission free on Sunday but there is an amazing cafe inside with a beautiful garden patio to eat at. The food is put together by culinary students and it is amazing! You can't go wrong by visiting here.
Great facility with a slew of artistic endeavors in a well organized yet semi chaotic manner. This exhibition has an artillery of mesmerizing pieces of all aspects and mediums. This is a place where aesthetics are to be enjoyed and appreciated and they put their best foot forward to make that very apparent.
