Cleveland is a lot of things. It’s a sports town. It’s a music town. It’s a town of the arts.

And you’ll find all that and more in Cleveland’s countless museums. Summer is a great time to pay them a visit, too, so we’ve outlined five that you really should add to your list of places to visit. You won’t regret making a day trip to any of them.

Baseball Heritage Museum
6601 Lexington

It’s no secret that Cleveland is a big baseball town, which is why it should come as no surprise that you don’t need to travel all the way to Cooperstown, New York to experience a fantastic museum dedicated to the sport.

This museum places a special focus on the diverse history of the sport, from the Negro Leagues and beyond. Any fan should see it!

Cleveland Museum of Art
11150 East Boulevard

When you hear the word “museum” you probably think of art before anything else, and as most of us Clevelanders know, there is no better place to experience the art world than at the Cleveland Museum of Art.

This world class facility is one of the best and most respected in the nation, featuring classic works of art from some of history’s greatest creators. Whether or not you’re an aficionado, this is a must-visit.

Cleveland Museum of Natural History
1 Wade Oval Drive

If the word “museum” doesn’t conjure up images of art, then it conjures up images of dinosaur bones and displays of Earth’s past.

That’s what you’ll get at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, which features interactive exhibits and galleries, ancient artwork, and loads more. From family outings to students, anyone interested in learning should pay this museum a visit.

A Christmas Story House
3159 W. 11th Street

If you want to get a feel for what makes Cleveland unique, you’re going to want to visit one of its more quirky destinations. The Christmas Story museum certainly fits the bill.

This is the actual house used in the filming of the classic movie, converted to recreate exactly how it looked both inside and out. Loads of props, a gift shop, and something you can only experience in Cleveland makes this someplace you need to visit.

International Women’s Air & Space Museum
Burke Lakefront Airport

The contributions of women to the fields of aviation and space aren’t often celebrated, but they certainly are at the International Women’s Air & Space Museum, which has a pretty self-explanatory focus.

Hands-on displays, multiple exhibits and a research library located on-site make this a place of learning unlike any other in the world. Give it a look!
