For a small museum, they have a wonderful collection, well organized and well labeled. Great gift shop and pleasant, well informed staff. And then there is the ENORMOUS red iron sculpture out front! It is a nice drive out of town, past Witts frozen custard stand and well worth the trip. Wonderful pottery collection with some really rare pieces but... More

a natural site for this area and its history of ceramics/china. great collection of pottery + few classical paintings, oriental pieces, even a monkey band!!. recent objects and annual OHIO exhibition are mainly abstract junk. try to ignore them and enjoy the rest

They have a large selection of pottery relating to the area and rotate their items so you always see some new items. very interesting displays of other items and art displays also.

For a small city of less than 30,000 people, this is a fine little museum. The permanent collection of American and European art, while not extensive, is impressive. As is the African and Asian collections. Zanesville, of course, was a major center of ceramics manufacturing and design and the museum's vast collection will easily keep fans of 19th- and 20th-century... More

We stopped for lunch in Zanesville. Decided to check out the Museum of Art since we had a few extra minutes before heading east. We stayed for 2 hours. It could have been longer. Surprise number one was the building. Not what we expected and certainly not in a city the size of Zanesville. Surprise number two was what was... More

We thought that this would be a museum in a house since it featured pottery. I guess we had visions of the pottery stores out on highway 40. We were so wrong! The building was beautiful! The ceramic display of winners was interesting and while it is there the entrance was free. The Roseville pottery (which we wanted to see... More
