If you enjoy outside entertainment and a great indoor gallery, then head on down to the Akron Art Museum. The summer music outdoors is the Best of the Best. Enjoy a relaxing summer night and take in the Art Museum.

An interesting afternoon. Rainy day inside a clean lovely museum with lovely art. Wish there was a bit larger selection of food choices but that's not why we were there. The staff was unobtrusive but ready to answer questions when asked.

It has a lot of nice exhibits and good art and sometimes the traveling exhibits are unbelievably great. A Hidden Gem I would recommend it. Check with the museum to see when children's activities take place.
