Columbus Museum of ArtColumbus has more than its fair share of arts institutions, including the venerable Columbus Museum of Art, which opened a new modern wing in late 2015. This expansion, designed by a local architect, adds new gallery space for the museum's permanent collection, and a bright new area for special exhibitions. An outdoor sculpture garden and excellent new restaurant make the Museum a great spot to enjoy any time of day. On the campus of Ohio State University, the acclaimed Wexner Center for the Arts offers three rotating exhibitions per year, focused on contemporary artists. Next door, the Billy Ireland Cartoon Museum has the largest collection of cartoons in the world, and stages exhibitions in three galleries year round.
