Cleveland Museum of Art
The Cleveland Museum of Art is considered one of the finest comprehensive art museums in the country. The many exhibits and special installations cover an enormous expanse of art history, movements, styles, media and individual artists. In addition to general exhibit hours (during which admission is free), patrons also can take advantage of numerous special exhibits, cocktail hours, private tours, private events and educational programs.
Opened in 1916 after many years of planning, the museum was made possible by Cleveland industrialists Hinman B. Hurlbut, John Huntington, and Horace Kelley, all of whom contributed to an endowment to fund it. The property was donated by Jeptha H. Wade II. The building, conceived in the neoclassic style, was designed by the Cleveland architectural firm Hubbell & Benes.
