Note: I received a private guided tour when the museum was closed as part of my work with Experience Columbus. However, I had previously visited Columbus Museum of Art on four separate occasions.
I love art museums. I used to live in France, where I fell in love with art.
This art museum includes both a fabulous permanent collection (MONET!!!) and engaging temporary exhibitions.
On my most recent visit, I was most captivated by Aminah’s Presidential Suite, a new exhibition featuring some of the work by late Columbus artist Aminah Robinson. She created this particular body of work in celebration of the first African-American president.
Whenever I visit the Columbus Museum of Art, I get distracted by all the interactive opportunities. While some are more geared towards children, many of the hands-on activities are fun for all ages.
If you aren't really into art, stop by on Sundays when there's free admission. You will still easily enjoy an hour or two.
