What a great museum! As an encyclopedic museum, the Cleveland Museum of Art does not disappoint. Actually, it is a great one. From ancient classical cultures to contemporary American art, it has very few gaps. In this visit I marveled at the contemporary art and...More

The collections are beautiful as is the building. The restaurant was quite good, and it was hard to believe it was free to get in. A must see.

This museum is so beautiful and put together very well. The only reason this didn't get five stars from me was because I was hoping to see the Faberge exhibit and it didn't seem to be there.

This museum has a wonderful collection and is a beautiful place to visit. While we were there, they were setting up for an event. Would be a beautiful place for a reception.

This is a must-see when visiting Cleveland. Gorgeous museum with surprises everywhere: Picasso, Monet, van Gogh, Rodin, Mondrian, rooms full of Asian/Persian/Native American/European art, sculpture, pottery, and so much more. The room full of armor and chain metal was so impressive.

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.
