Columbus Museum of Art

June 21, 2021 -- Columbus City Schools students, families, and staff can explore the Columbus Museum of Art for FREE this summer. Thanks to a special partnership with Battelle, CMA is offering all CCS students, their families, and our staff the opportunity to visit the museum and its special exhibits at no charge.

Families and staff can reserve WonderPass tickets online through the Columbus Museum of Art website using the code CCS2021 at checkout. The WonderPass provides free, unlimited visits all summer long, now through Sunday, September 5. All tickets must be reserved online in advance due to ongoing capacity guidelines.

WonderPass TicketStudents, families, and staff will be able to explore art throughout the museum galleries via hands-on activities and puzzles, and conversation spaces. The Museum is also excited to offer for viewing at no charge, their current exhibition and a Columbus City Schools graduate, Aminah Robinson. Families will be able to see, for free, her unique work, Raggin’ On: The Art of Aminah Robinson’s House and Journals.

Getting to the Museum is easy; public transportation is available on COTA: the #10 bus-line stops right in front of the Museum. Visitors can park in the CMA parking lot for $5, and free parking is available in adjacent lots. 

The Museum is dedicated to remaining a safe and welcoming place for Columbus families and visitors. In response to coronavirus (COVID-19) and to support efforts to help reduce the spread of the virus, CMA has implemented new protocols and guidelines developed in alignment with official health and government recommendations. Your visit to the Museum may look different, but know that these protocols and guidelines are there to provide a safe and great experience for all visitors and staff.
