What a Gem - and it's FREE!

That's right, free entry and parking for all. Plus the art ain't that bad either (just kidding!) What a gem in Eden Park. Spacious displays that are free to the public to view... read more

The museum is free but you pay for parking. We normally park down the road in the park and walk over so it's all free. Good to spend a few hours looking at paintings and other artworks. Beautiful building. Friendly staff. Great winter activity to get inside somewhere out of the cold.

Spacious displays that are free to the public to view, only the Special Exhibits require paying a fee to view. Had lunch at the Terrace Café. I expected the worst, and received a fantastic club sandwich, salad,... More

I've been a few times to see various exhibits, and the exhibits are always very well done. This is probably the best museum in the area, located in a beautiful area of Cincinnati. Can't go wrong. Oh, and parking is now free, just thought I'd throw that in.

Had not visited our museum in many years, what a great place. There is something for everyone here! Nice and easy pace, plenty of volunteers to answer questions, and guide you through. Also, has a nice little café for a coffee or snack while there. Highly recommend for all ages!

We did not expect to be so impressed! Great collection- beautiful building - much more than you can see in a day! And free admission! There is a cafe on the premises and parking is easy.

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
