About this activity

If you LOVE art, or just love to be inspired by great works, then a trip to the Cincinnati Art Museum might just be for you!

This impressive museum features an unparalleled art collection of more than 60,000 works that spans 6,000 years of art history. Not only can children who visit see a number of different forms of art, from paintings to sculptures, but they can also enjoy an educational experience in history, and cultures from all around the world

There is an extensive African art collection, with a focus on central and west Africa (with the collection dating back to 1890!), and you can also explore one of the oldest Asian art collections in the entire US! There are over 5,000 objects from China, Indian, Tibet, Korea and more, with Neolithic pottery, Buddhist sculptures and enamel included in the collection.

The Cincinnati Art Museum has been collecting fashion and textiles since 1881, with over 15,000 objects - some from pioneering American fashion designers, as well as an important collection of Native American Art, and even musical instruments that spam 400 years, representing over 30 musical cultures!

In fact, the musical instrument collection is one of the most important collections of its kind in the WORLD!

In addition to displaying its own broad collection, the Cincinnati Art Museum also hosts several national and international traveling exhibitions each year, so you can always plan your next visit around something new to see!

From Islamic Art, to contemporary, to photography, prints and more, the Cincinnati Art Museum is an inspiring and creative day out in Ohio's capital!
