Right at the intersection of Martin Luther King Dr. and Euclid Ave., set back behind a beautiful reflecting pond, is the Cleveland Museum of Art
. This cultural jewel is a must-see for any resident or visitor to the city.
If you are driving, there are many metered parking spaces around Martin Luther King Drive as well as along Wade Oval. You can also park in the museum's three-story covered lot, adjacent to the museum.
The Cleveland Museum of Art's permanent collection is free to the public. The diverse collection includes a large selection of popular Impressionist works, with paintings by Monet, Degas, and Renoir as well as sculpture by Rodin and Degas, among others. The museum is also known for its extensive Asian art exhibits, its colorful armor court, and its collection of Medieval religious artifacts.
The museum has a cafe offering surprisingly delicious food as well as wine and beer. During the summer, you can enjoy your snack in the peaceful inner courtyard.(Please note: the museum's permanent collection is closed for construction until early 2008.)
