This is one of the oldest museums in the US and also probably the first purpose-built museum in the Midwest. The museum was built in the year 1881 and has been developing and redeveloping since then to keep up with its standard throughout these 100 years and even more. There was a lot of debate initially on where the museum was to be built but at last, the current location was chosen by the highest contributor and thus we can see the beautiful museum in such a beautiful location now.
This museum was built in a typical Roman Revival architectural style and later many modifications were made but the authenticity is kept intact. The Cincinnati Wing was later on added to showcase the works of only the present and past workers and artists of the city. This native collection includes the Odoardo Fantacchiotti angels that form the most remarkable pieces here.
The collection in the other parts apart from the 15 local galleries includes the works of many renowned artists from all over the world. You will be amazed to know that the museum authorities spend over a few million bucks just to put up regular exhibitions throughout the year. This is considered as a cultural heritage of the city and it deservingly is one!

Cicinnati Art Museum Reviews & Ratings
Beautiful building and location with some fantastic exhibits. A nice variety of art from various periods, styles and cultures in what seems to be the permanent collection. Came while The Burning Man exhibit was there and it was well done. Loved it!
What a gem! I love the location of this place. Beautiful, impressive collection of pieces! Went to see Burning Man exhibit, liked how it was placed throughout the museum! Ate lunch at the cafe, food was very good.
Love this place, free entry and great collection of art, murals and craftsmanship dating back as old as 3000 years or more. They also change the themes, which is nice if you want to visit every now and then. The modern arts section is a great way to patronize up and coming artists and will only get better with time. Also, you can host parties, the sorroundings with City view is lovely. Their gift shop is small but has always something that you can buy. Highly recommend a visit if you are in Cincinnati.
My first time going to an art museum and it was stunning. It's free so you dont gotta worry about money if you wanted to bring the kids along. Its also in a very nice area, I alone liked the drive just to get there because it passes a park. It's also near by a plant conservatory which was also lovely. Very beautiful place.
Historical displays as well as art across all time periods. Pieces by world famous artists. And a beautiful building too, which is large enough for the variety but not too large to get around it all. I highly recommend this excellent gallery and museum.
