    When founded in 1881, it was the first purpose-built art museum west of the Alleghenies. This building was initially completed in 1886. From the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County.

    There are some very lovely full-room exhibits/pieces here at the CAM. Like, you walk in the room & the whole room is a piece. I've never seen anything like it at other Art Museums -- really neat.

    Did you know? The museum has the only collection of ancient Nabataean art outside of Jordan. The Nabateans were, at one time, the largest empire in Europe or the Middle East. Read more

    The Cincinnati Art Museum is a lovely, mid-sized museum with a good variety of artworks. You can easily go through the museum in an afternoon.

    Great Museum nestled atop lovely Eden Park. Search-out the library; floor-to-high-ceiling windows flood the space with light.

    Check out the Cincinnati wing. The Cincinnati Art Museum became the first art museum in the country to dedicate permanent gallery space to celebrating the art history of a city.

    Instead of the $4 lot on the right, turn into the free lot on the left and walk to the entrance. This makes your visit free.

    The grounds outside are just a beautiful as the architecture on the inside. Not to mention outstanding exhibits.

    Awesome exhibit on Art Deco fashion. Try to tag along on a docent tour. The woman who restored all the beadwork is really knowledgeable.
