I heard the building was open for tours on the first Wednesday of each month between noon and 4pm. I'm standing outside at 12:30pm on November 2, 2022 and there's no sign of anyone here, just like the last time I passed by. Very disappointing.

Is the group still active? There's no website, no phone number, no email, just an old building with a padlocked iron gate in front.

Being a history lover, I was excited to visit the "Living History" event they had at the armory. This was my first visit. I wasn't sure how it would go. It surpassed my expectations. The Armory museum itself is well worth the visit. The Cleveland Militia, probably best described as a voluntary precursor to the National Guard, played major roles in wars from 1837 to the end of World War. The military artifacts were outstanding and showed the life of a Militia Man throughout the wars. The Living History element highlighted different people in the Civil War, such as a former black slave turned spy and a women who dressed as a man to fight in the war. In addition my six year old grandson also came with us and especially enjoyed the scavenger hunt. If you want to learn more about Cleveland, it's history and its militia, this is the place to go.

We went with a group that had pre-booked a tour -- so I'm not certain if someone just walking around Cleveland would find Grays Armory open. It is a fabulous place, both inside and out, and full of history, so if you can make a scheduled tour, it is well worth the time.

We stopped here as we wandered through the Playhouse Sq. area and were fascinated by this unusual building. Come and read the plaques outside and learn some history of the volunteer forces from the city who fought in various wars. Lots of history.

Our staycation was before the tour day but we emailed them and the staff was able to book us an appointment and gave a wonderful private guided tour! Must be flexible with appt times as I think they only have 1 or 2 staff!! Even with a limited staff this landmark and museum is worth making an appointment to see!!

I was just in Cleveland, and i thought Gray's armory would have been great to check out. Once I got there, it was closed up tight as a drum. There was no flashy sign like the one shown out in front either. Very disappointing.

We were fortunate the tour was on the 2nd Wednesday for June, as opposed to the usual 1st Wednesday, while we were in town. A great museum with the history of the Grays and their involvement through different wars and their social involvement in Cleveland and the rest of the country.

I've walked past this place tons of times but didn't know it was there. A very interesting historical building home of the Cleveland Greys. Lots of history in the building as well as the organization themselves. There is also a Wurlitzer organ! Worth a look if you enjoy Cleveland's history.

While downtown Cleveland, my husband and I decided to take a tour of the armory. We walked in and were told that you need an appointment for a tour. -- FYI, call ahead! However, the woman there was kind to give up a quick tour without one.
Interesting !! The woodwork inside is amazing. The history behind the armory is fascinating. They are doing some renovations, so be prepared to see some pipes, boards, etc. The outside of the building is an awesome sight too. They do weddings, conferences, and other things too.
Price is $10.00 per person. Seniors and children discounted.

The tour lasts approximately 1 hour. They offer public tours the first weds of the month from noon to 4p for a nominal charge. The tour includes all the areas of the building to include the indoor firing range. Numerous small exhibits are displayed in several rooms. It is a good historical adventure into little known aspects of Cleveland. The staff were extremely helpful and informative.
