I was so excited that the Cleveland locals voted for us to visit the Cleveland Museum of Art during my media trip with Positively Cleveland. I absolutely LOVE art!  Cleveland locals voted for each attraction/ meal via facebook and twitter for the duration of our stay.  I loved this concept because it felt like a spontaneous adventure with choices that reflected the local favorites by Cleveland residents.

The Cleveland Museum of Art is also a tourist attraction that is fun and FREE!!! That’s right. .. and not only is it FREE, it also is an incredible museum with a vast variety of art that spans time periods and cultures.

I know my kids would have loved the room that was filled with weapons used to fight in ancient times.
