Columbus Museum of Art

See some masterpieces or make one of your own at this interactive and educational museum, complete with modern masters, a sculpture garden and creative workshops.

Experience old mixed with new in the Columbus Museum of Art’s many galleries, temporary exhibits and permanent collection. Diverse interests and tastes are all served in this historically significant and thought-provoking museum. Immerse yourself in works by modern masters and contemporary innovators. Get creative and experience the challenges and processes involved in art at the interactive Center for Creativity, suitable for children and adults. Wander in a garden of art in the museum’s outdoor sculpture gallery.

A stunning permanent collection of American and European modernist artworks fill the brightly painted, period-themed galleries. Art from the early modernist period is hung in asymmetric rows to the ceiling, the traditional salon-style hang. See works by some of the greatest artists of the 19th and 20th centuries, such as Picasso, Cézanne, Degas, Matisse and Monet. The museum also holds a burgeoning contemporary art collection and a photography gallery with images from the late 19th century through to current times.

Perusing all these masterpieces may inspire your artistic side, so head to the museum’s center for creativity. A range of temporary exhibitions, community and educational workshops and art classes take place here every day. Join in and learn about different aspects of the art world and then create some art of your own, suitable for framing. Afterward, grab a well-deserved drink or snack from the on-site café.

The Columbus Museum of Art may be small by comparison to its sister museums in Toledo and Cleveland, but it has a full and wide-ranging program for social and educational opportunities. Join one of the regular art book club meetings, free lectures or artist talks and learn about new perspectives in art and culture. Chat with well-trained volunteers who act as roaming docents, offering tours several afternoons a month.

There is a fee to enter the museum; special rates apply for students, children and visitors over 60. Take advantage of the museum’s free admission on Sundays or enjoy an evening activity during late opening times on Thursdays. The museum is closed on Mondays and public holidays.
