The outside of the building is interesting. When you walk in you see an impressive design on the one wall but that is the best part. It is down hill from there. I feel like the stairs take up a large part of the space...More

MOCA has a very distinctive design - somewhat resembling a spaceship- befitting a contemporary art museum. It has four levels and the dominant architectural feature is stairs. It’s a very small museum with very little space devoted to art. There’s an art-free lobby with a...More

We were lucky to visit on a day with free day (bonus for travellers on a budget!) and not crowded. This allowed us to look at the art and reflect or debate the meaning or inspiration. We spent about 90mins looking at the different displays...More

I thought I loved contemporary art, but maybe not. Perhaps I'm just not hip enough. I was there on a 1st Saturday of the month when the entrance is free. I was happy about that, even though I did have to pay for parking near...More

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...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...More

The $9.50 admission price gave me access to two small and nearly incomprehensible exhibits. I spent all of 20 minutes in the place. I didn't find that it was time or money well spent.

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....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...More
