Just got back from a spectacular show highlighting Van Gogh and other French painters from the late 1880's called Van Gogh and the Underbrush. It focused on mostly forest scenes and the evolution of this particular french movement. Small charge for the show but the Art Museum has FREE parking and general admission. What a great community resource. It is... More

The special exhibit was very well done. We spent most of our time there and didn't get a chance to tour other parts of the museum. I can't wait to return to... More

The museum is beautiful and well curated. Went for the special show Van Gogh : Into the Undergrowth. Loved it and so well curated. Fascinating study. As with many things in Cincinnati, this museum is definitely underrated. Admission is free except to special exhibits.

The array of paintings representing the time period was excellent. I gained insight into Van Gogh's artwork. The background information was very instructive. It helped me to understand how he developed into such a master.

The Museum is near Downtown Cincinnati, by taxi is around a 10-minute trip. You will find pieces from ancient cultures of America, Asia and Africa, as well as wonderful pieces from Europe. Their collection of American artist is also relevant. The whole museum can be visited in about three hours.

We spent 3.5 hours there and hardly saw half the museum. The Van Gogh exhibit was amazing. Highly recommend this exhibit to anyone who appreciates art.

We really enjoyed the Van Gogh exhibit as well as the Lexington Camera Club. With that said, the entire museum is a great way to spend an afternoon.
