Beautiful museum is free on Sunday afternoons. Wonderfully responsible of them to have a weekly time period when anyone can experience art, regardless of financial positions. Keep up the good work!

Great collection, art is nicely displayed. I enjoy the cafe each time I go, would like to see them continue to expand. Love the gift shop as well. Overall, great place to take visitors to Columbus.

Remodeled art museum. Free day which was incredibly crowded. We had trouble finding parking as we didn't originally know meters are free on weekends. We joined the free tour which was so informative but very long.

A tour given by a docent can be helpful to understand the history of the pieces and take a little extra time but it is worth it. Add in time for shopping and it could take about two to three hours.
