My nephew's school did a last minute filed trip to this museum and we greated by a very nice soft spoken young women named Ava. She kindly took us to four big art works in different exhibits that were recently brought to the museum. Overall, very nice, informative, relaxing experience.

Debbie Cain

Alice Murray

Great art in a nicely accessible building. Like the modern art.

Harry Harbst

Alicia Lopez

Great little museum. Friendly staff, and a pretty good selection of art eras, mediums, and styles. There is also a free audio tour, with local college students reporting dissertations on some of the pieces.

Great exhibits all the time.

The Allen Museum is a gem. Admission is free and their Japanese print collection is world class. Living in Washington DC we have access to so many top-notch museums and galleries but nothing as intimate and welcoming as the Allen. Definitely worth visiting.

Allen Memorial Art Museum is a nice little, unexpected gem that we found while in Oberlin. It is fun to experience art without having to go to University Circle.

Took the granddaughters. They liked it because we saw art from before Christ and from around the 300. The youngest really liked it maybe we'll go again if shecomes to my house alone. It's a nice place to spend some time.

The Allen art museum is designed to look like an Italian palazzo. The older portion of the building certainly shows this, with a central courtyard with embellished ceiling and upper-story arcades. The addition is rather ugly from the outside, but has very good light distribution and maximizes display space. The art is well-curated, with a rotation of items on display that encompass the wide variety of visual arts throughout the ages. There is stuff by artists that you would not expect to find in a small-town museum. A very manageable, enjoyable museum The museum also owns the Weltzheimer/Johnson House a Frank Lloyd Wright Usonian building that is open for tours seasonally.

Lukas Reinhardt

They keep alot of the same art around but it's good art

Hidden gem. Absolutely one of the best small art museums in the US! Do not miss....even if you only have a short period of time.


I went to visit and it was wonderful to see a variety of well know art works. I especially enjoyed the Japanese art exhibit on the second floor.

Jason Dozier

I grew up in Oberlin all my life still love the community but they need to have job opportunities and build long term jobs


Jeff Sheldon

a hidden treasure in Lorain county,, enjoy

Kat Lovsya

Was great. Security guards were a little... well... annoying. I'm not allowed to point at the paintings or stand too close to them. They're just doing their job, though.

Peter Jefferis

A magnificent little museum.

Jeremy Hunsinger

A great museum in a nice town. It has several masterpieces, well worth the visit

Any museum that is free is already awesome, but they have many interesting exhibits and plenty of beautiful artwork too!

W.P. Osborn

Lovely museum! A nice way to spend an hour or two on a rainy day, or even a sunny day. The galleries have been recently updated and there's more to see then it appears at first. A definite must-see if you happen to be in Oberlin.

I liked to look at the modern art and laugh about how much I dislike modern art. The staff was annoying and followed us around and basically told us not to look at the paintings so hard. I leaned on the wall for two seconds, pointed a little too close to the picture, had my phone screen on for a second too long before i started walking, on top of just senselessly following. It was too quiet and it was horribly uncomfortable. I would probably never want to go again.

I love this small museum and awesome building, excellent permanent works, including an early work from one of my favorites Thomas Cole as well as Monet Picasso etc.

Francisek Kuhar

Anna Williams

Free! Manageable collection. Take the free audio tour. They enlist the diverse range of faculty to talk about and respond to the art. Learned about optics of physics in a pointelist painting.

It was an interesting look at art. It has been quite a while since I stepped inside of the museum. I viewed many great pieces of work, learned about Asian culture in particular and will return with my son soon.

Cresencio Lopez

A very nice museum. The security is serious here, but are very helpful and friendly. It is amazing to to see the amount of art and very well-preserved art in one place. A must see place, oh did I mention it is free, can not beat that.

World class art in a well laid out building.

Kenneth Rochester

The very best college art museum. Works by great Masters and no entrance fee

Angiee Cakesz

JJ Hepp

An outstanding art museum by any measure - especially for a college museum. I don't think enough locals in Oberlin and especially in Cleveland come out to visit this wonderful place. It's free and open to the public and boy is it worth it. Many of the big names can be found inside, as well as a well-curated collection of other artists. If you are looking for a day trip - come to Oberlin and visit the AMAM!
