Just the right size museum. Well designed. Spent several hours there and didn't get museum feet. Numerous gorgeous paintings and mixed media artwork, some by famous artists like Peter Paul Rubens...

I went and really enjoyed the modern art as well as all the fascinating interactive stations across the museum. I would highly recommend going and checking this out. You do need to pay to enter but it isn't that much and it is free to get in on Sundays. Overall I would recommend looking around for little details because I found little Lego Among us characters hidden across the museum which is hilarious. Though I only found four I would assume that there are a few more that I had not come across. These really got the attention of the kids and helped keep them occupied as we explored. I really had a great experience and would strongly recommend for families as well as friends to go and explore the fascinating collection of pieces. And I hope to come again really soon.
This is our first venture here with kids, and I must say the Columbus Museum of Art is 100% wonderful. Everyone we have talked to has been super friendly and helpful. The artwork is inspiring and I was blown away to see works by Picasso and Monet. There are plenty of interactive items for kids. Admission is $18.00 for adults $9.00 for kids(4 and up)/seniors/students Free for little ones Parking is an additional $5.00, and a gift shop or cafe purchase will validate. They also have a partnership with other museums around the country, so a membership at another museum may cover the admission! We have an Ohio History Connection membership and they are partnered! In conclusion, I absolutely recommend coming here and coming back!!!
