When I shifted the blog from Why CLE?, part of my goal was to not just recap my weekend activities, but to be able to really highlight special places and people. A couple weeks ago, I told you about a trip to Lake View Cemetery.
This weekend included a visit to the recently-reopened Cleveland Museum of Art.
The Cleveland Museum of Art is a world-class, free art museum that houses some incredible works from Monet to van Gogh to Warhol…
…and everything from paintings to sculptures to furniture to medieval armor to a snowman.
You can also enjoy current special exhibitions like Proof: Photography in the Era of the Contact Sheet (open through August 2) and Tiffany in Bloom: Stained Glass Lamps of Louis Comfort Tiffany (open through October 4.)
Plus, the atrium is just hands-down one of the prettiest spaces in town.
I also love walking back to the terrace and taking in Rodin and Wade Lagoon.
The Cleveland Museum of Art remains free, but advance ticket reservations are now required. The Museum is limiting visitors to 500 guests per day and when we were there (on a sold-out Saturday) everyone was very well distanced.
Masks are required for all visitors and staff and temperature checks are performed on guests when they arrive. There are a few galleries that are closed due to spacial constraints, as well as a few that are limited in number of guests at a time. You can read more about the safety precautions being taken here.
The Cleveland Museum of Art is one of the most authentically Cleveland places to spend a day. It’s wonderful to have it back and in a way that keeps us safe. You can learn more about the Museum here and follow them on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
