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, Cincinnati Reviews - Write a Review

  • Parking is free whether around the side of the museum or at the bottom of the hill. Something important to note - CAM is HUGE. If you really wanted to see everything, you’d probably want to make a day trip of it. You’ll want to grab a map or you’ll get lost and/or miss exhibits. Exhibits vary widely from paintings, sculptures, textiles from every era and in every medium you could possibly imagine. There is something for everyone. The Ana England Kinship exhibit was my favorite, hands down. General admission is free which covers 90% of the museum. There are also ticketed exhibitions. There is a coffee counter in the main lobby and there was a lively band playing upbeat music. Lots of places to sit and take a break. I did see a kid’s area. Free WiFi was also available.

  • Staff was awful. Had to ask four different guides/guards in the galleries where pieces of art were, and all four had no idea, or were too lazy to guide my friend and I to the works we were looking for. After roaming around, we eventually found the ones we were looking for ourselves. The waitress at the cafe was rude and inattentive. However, the museum had many impressive and beautiful pieces. The works of art are definitely worth the trip, as long as you know where you're going in the museum, and aren't planning on eating at the cafe.

  • I had so much fun with my friends there. It is wheelchair accessible. Very nice enviroment with lots to look at. They have tablets around the museum so you can learn more about the art pieces and take a closer look. Throughout you can find many panflets you can take home. The staff was very helpful and attentive with their patrons.

  • One of the absolute best locations in Cincinnati for the culture and art. They always manage to stay on the precipice of cutting edge galleries of antiquated art. The displays from all over the world along with their completely free admission makes this one of my favorite spots in Cincy.

  • A fantastic museum which features a large variety of galleries and the icing on the cake is the restaurant inside the museum which is call The Terrace Cafe, in the summer they have a wonderful shaded patio in a lovely courtyard. This would make a great day date.
