“for the benefit of all the people forever”

“The Cleveland Museum of Art was founded in 1913 “for the benefit of all the people forever.”  We strive to help the broadest possible audience understand and engage with the world’s great art while honoring the highest aesthetic, intellectual, and professional standards. We are proud to be one of the world’s most distinguished comprehensive art museums and one of northeastern Ohio’s principal civic and cultural institutions. Founding The museum opened on June 6, 1916 after many years of planning. Its creation was made possible by Cleveland industrialists Hinman B. Hurlbut, John Huntington, and Horace Kelley, all of whom bequeathed money specifically for an art museum, as well as by Jeptha H. Wade II, whose Wade Park property was donated for the site. The endowments established by these founders continue to support the museum. The original neoclassic building of white Georgian marble was designed by the Cleveland firm of Hubbell & Benes and was constructed at a cost of $1.25 million. Located north of the Wade Lagoon, it forms the focus of the city’s Fine Arts Garden.”

I enjoyed the museum. It had a beautiful foyer with bean bags that set the mood. They advertise that they have an audio tour if you have headphones which is cool. It’s modern and well kept. It was beautiful and the experience was really peaceful.

Beautiful free museum. I wish we had known that we needed to buy tickets for the special exhibit before we came, that was a disappointment. Other than that, highly recommended.

Even if you aren't in the mood to walk around the inside I still suggest you walk around outside. The entire area is beautiful.
