What a delightful surprise. Didn't read much of anything about this museum prior to visiting. Much bigger and impressive than I anticipated. We wish we would have planned a half day to fully go...

Wow this place is amazing! We traveled from Columbus to check out the museum and we weren’t disappointed. We have a membership with Columbus Museum of Art and through the reciprocal agreement program this was all free for us. The museum itself is free but normally you would pay $10 for parking. But since we have the membership it was free. They had works of art from all eras and I was happy to see a Renoir as those are my favorites! We spent 3 hours and didn’t get to see everything before they closed. We will be back! They have a little coffee shop with food (we didn’t go in so I can’t review that piece). They have bathrooms up and downstairs. Plenty of parking and everything is accessible. Check this out, you won’t be disappointed!
Great museum! The mummified cat was neat. They had some really nice pieces and everyone we spoke with that worked there was super nice. If you get to close to something it announces that you’re too close and to back up. Beautiful pieces in the gift shop as well.
