Fodor's Review

Opened in 1881 in Eden Park, the museum explores 5,000 years of art through paintings, sculpture, decorative arts, and special exhibitions from around the world. Frank Duveneck, perhaps Cincinnati's best-known artist, bequeathed his collection to the museum in 1919, which included his masterpiece, "The Whistling Boy." The light-filled Cincinnati Wing traces the history of Cincinnati art, which encompasses ceramics, furniture, metalworks, and sculpture. In Fall 2006, Aaron

Betsky joined the CAM as director; he had previously served as director of the Netherlands Architecture Institute and as a curator at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.

Cincy Art is FREE and FUN!

I love the Cincinnati Art Museum, it's free general admission to all with minimal fees for any special exhibits. Right now they have Petra, The Lost City of Stone. This city was located in the deser but thru brilliant engineering it rose up to be the heart of trade and wealth in biblical times until 360 A.D. when a catastrophic earthquake collapsed much of it keeping it hidden until the 19th century. The exhibit is huge and the museum even has

the largest dedicated wing to local artists in the country! A great date place and a must see!
