Amazing! Surprised to see such a large Alex Katz's work in this exhibit. They not only had his paintings , but also wonderful collages.

The Cleveland Museum of Art is a far cry from the typical stuffy art museum. Their exhibits are often out in the open and on some occasions you can even handle relics thousands of years old. The layout is smooth and takes you easily from one era to the next. There is always more to see here.

For such a small city, Cleveland has a wonderful art museum. It is well organized and offers art from many different periods and countries/ cultures. Staff was helpful and pleasant. Definitely a great place to visit.

Went to one of the Mix functions. It would have been nice to see a little more of the museum and seating for the fashion show was limited. Everyone was friendly and it was a good place to meet people of all ages.

This beautiful art museum offers FREE admission. You typically would not find a museum of this caliber that does not charge an admission fee. I spent at least 4-5 hours there, broken up by a lunch break at the onsite café. It was thoroughly enjoyable and I would definitely go back.

This museum has a very good art collection ranging from ancient to contemporary art. The building has several areas and a big atrium in the middle bringing in a lot of light. There is a parking lot right behind the building. The museum is in a very nice park which also includes the Botanical Garden and Natural History Museum.

Came to Cleveland to go to a ball game and spent a few hours here to see the special Katz show. Really well done show and really glad we got to see it. The permanent collection of the museum is interesting and worth seeing. Don't miss the restaurant here, it is definitely also worth a visit.

This is a huge place and easy to get lost in. Old building with an atrium attached to it. Super cool structure. It has samples of art from all around the world. Take note there is a cafe in the atrium and to the left of the cafe is the actual restaurant

We were in Cleveland for a day and decided to spend a few hours at the Cleveland Museum of Art. It is a beautiful museum and what makes it especially great is that other than a few exhibits admission is free. It truly is worth a visit.
