Hailed by the New York Times as “one of the country’s best repertory movie theaters,” The Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque feeds eyes with a vast array of foreign and independent first-run films, silver-screen classics, and touring retrospectives. Cinematheque members notch $2–$3 off regular tickets to a lineup of 450 annual film screenings ($6 for a single film with membership, $12 for two films on the same day with membership). Guests can then stay up-to-date on the latest showings and plan outfits for the premieres of award-winning film trailers by reading the bi-monthly film schedule that is sent by mail or by tracking Cinematheque’s online extended film schedule. They can then head to the front row of the 616-seat Russell B. Aitken Auditorium to bask in the glow of films projected from vivid 35mm film.

To most, the garden featured in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is purely make-believe. But not to people who've smelled the chocolate-scented varietals blooming among hidden trails and a climbable tree house at the Hershey Children's Garden. This sweet-smelling garden is just one of the Cleveland Botanical Garden's 20 gardens, which encompass everything from 3,500 herb plants to lotuses and water lilies floating atop a 74-foot-long reflecting pool. Vibrant hydrangeas complement sculptures in an art garden, while the Guren Art Gallery's ever-changing exhibits spotlight new work inspired by botany and the power of pruning shears.

Shaded boardwalks and winding trails connect all these visual splendors, eventually leading visitors to the Eleanor Armstrong Smith Glasshouse. Divided into a Madagascar desert and a Costa Rican rainforest, the glasshouse showcases 50 types of butterflies, birds, reptiles, and amphibians, plus 350 exotic plants, including a colossal strangler fig. Experts shine a light on such specimens during botanical lectures, which are one of many educational programs the garden offers, ranging from gardening symposiums to kids' science classes.

Since it's founding in 1913, the Cleveland Museum of Art has operated under a simple?yet lofty?mission statement: "For the benefit of all people, forever." In the spirit of that all-encompassing philosophy, the museum features works as disparate as ancient artifacts from the Classical world, lush landscapes from Dutch masters, and pieces from modern icons.

  • Size: the museum stretches across nearly 600,000 square feet, and contains 19 galleries spotlighting 5,800 years of art from Africa, Asia, Europe, and the Americas
  • Eye Catcher: an original cast of Auguste Rodin's Thinker sculptures, this one damaged by a pipe bomb attack in 1970?a crime for which no one was ever charged
  • Permanent Mainstays: internationally renowned Asian, Egyptian, and Indian collections
  • Visiting Exhibit: Yoga: The Art of Transformation, which includes Islamic divination texts, three stone yoginis from a 10th-century Chola temple, and Thomas Edison's Hindoo Fakir, the first film about an Indian subject ever produced
  • Don't Miss: Gallery One, a digital interactive gallery that lets visitors explore works by Pablo Picasso, Auguste Rodin, and Chuck Close on the largest multi-touch microtile screen in the United States

Founded in 1920, the Cleveland Museum of Natural History offers interactive exhibits including a planetarium, discovery center, observatory, live animal shows, and a wildlife center and woods garden highlighting Ohio flora and fauna. A family membership provides admission for two adults and all children under age 18 to all exhibits and permanent features. See how skin was filled millions of years ago with Lucy, a partial skeleton of a 3.2-million-year-old human ancestor; check out a demonstration of the Earth's rotation with the Foucault Pendulum; or visit the Perkins Wildlife Center and Woods Garden to closely study Ohio's native plants and animals, preparing for the day when they turn on mankind. Upcoming exhibits include Disease Detectives, which lets visitors examine faux patients for disease, and Let's Get Active, a crash course on the bodily effects of exercise, diet, and reading a book written by Alan Alda.
