Very disappointed in this museum. I purchased tickets ahead of time for my students to visit. When we arrived we were told there was nothing to view. That's right, no art at all. They changed all of their exhibits at the same time, and there was nothing currently in the museum. I appreciated that they did return our money, but... More

This place looks really cool from the outside but is absolutely the biggest waste of money. The inside is a complicated mess with stairs. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY.

This was so underwhelming. The building is so gorgeous and eccentric from outside. I was excited to visit. The inside is nothing like I thought it would be. The gift shop seems to be larger than the area for exhibits. There are a few levels but they are half sized levels. Hard to explain but the interior is definitely not... More

The architecture of the building is worth a visit in and of itself. The interior is also really interesting. The installations are incredibly sparse, and on the day I went so were the people. I definitely think I was the only person viewing the art. There were more docents in a single room than viewers. And then the docents kind... More

I had high hopes for this edgy modern Art Museum in Cleveland. The building is absolutely incredible. It was done by Iranian British architect Farshid Moussavi. Definitely an important building in Cleveland. Sadly the art inside was underwhelming. They had a good exhibit of an up-and-coming artist named Adam Pendleton. But the permanent collection seems weak at best. It seems... More

Two floors of exhibits and neither was worthy of what we consider contemporary art.... One was a political statement of hatred and the other was photos of people with physical deformities (one leg shorter than the other, spin curvature, etc...). This is not what we expected at a contemporary art museum. We were expecting, quality paintings, glass, sculptures etc, that... More

There is a reason contemporary art lovers from New York and England seem to enjoy this MOCA museum while some locals with passe tastes may not: Outside, it's a striking image in the growing, trendy Uptown / University Circle area of Cleveland -- not for those with suburban shopping-mall tastes. It's like an big onyx gem on the outside right... More

Instead of a facility to make contemrary art approachable by the public, an obscure female architect from Europe was allowed o create silly, arbitratay unattractive twisted black box with vertical windows that slash through the species inside with no regard to the user's experience. A disproportionate portion of the budget was wasted on a silly stair which, when you get... More

I went with friends and was disappointed. There was not much to see. The building was interesting but the exhibits left much to be desired. Not worth the money.
