Columbus Museum of Art: FREE Sundays

My best guess is that it had been at least a decade since Paul and I visited the Columbus Museum of Art. Paul can't remember going at all, although I'm sure we went once. Like I said, it's been a while.

The art museum is a small but pleasant building in downtown Columbus, on Broad Street. Best of all, admission is free on Sundays, and parking is always free. We visited on the last Sunday of January for a very specific reason: it was the final day of the special Lego exhibit.

On display were large replicas of some of the most well-known buildings in Columbus, including the Statehouse and several skyscrapers. On display as well were intricate Lego-depictions straight from the past (and future) -- think Medieval Times, plus a UFO.

While we were at the Columbus Museum of Art, we also made a special effort to visit the Wonder Room, a special interactive area that seems to be especially for kids. Edith had fun exploring, surrounded by art.

The museum has a small number of exhibits throughout the rest of the building. All in all, we spent only about 90 minutes there. But I would certainly return if the museum has another exhibit I'm especially interested in -- especially on a Sunday.
