Pick up a map, go to your favorite areas, then browse other areas as you have time. Not the best place if you want only a specific period or type of art but seems to give you a taste of many different cultures, periods, art...More

I took my family here, there are a few great interactive exhibits that consumed about half the time spent at the museum. There are some great impressionist artworks and interesting modern art exhibits. We also loved that admission is free (parking is ~$20).

Just selected as the #2 museum in the US. It's a great place to spend the day-or even 2 or 3. You must spend time at the interactive wall. Great for learning more about individual artists and art works. The museum is located in the...More

What a lovely museum inside and out...I was delighted by the many large and creative sculptures on the grounds of the museum and campus of Case Western Reserve. Love it!

This is an impressive museum. I wish I had more time to spend there, but the range of galleries and the grounds surrounding the museum should not be missed.

I agree with the two other responses. 2 hours minimum, but you could spend all day if you get food or just want to sit in the magnificent atrium and watch the world go by. Also it depends on how much you read descriptions... More

We almost always park on Martin Luther King, down the hill from CMA. Along MLK parking is free. This is not a good choice if snowy or rainy, but beautiful because you can walk by or look back at the Wade lagoon.
