Columbus Museum of Art#8 in Best Things To Do in Columbus, OH
Even though this museum is not particularly large, visitors say its artwork and exhibits are fascinating. The Columbus Museum of Art introduced a new wing in 2015 with additional gallery space for permanent collections and rotating exhibits. Speaking of traveling exhibits, museumgoers said they appreciated the different collections highlighted, adding that the rotating schedule means new art is showcased every few months. Another perk according to past visitors: the Wonder Room, aimed at engaging children with hands-on activities designed to teach them about art.
Situated downtown, the museum is open Tuesday to Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., with extended hours on Thursday until 9 p.m. It's closed on Mondays. Admission costs $14 for adults, $8 for seniors and students and $5 for kids ages 6 to 17. (Admission is free on Sundays.) Find out more information on the Columbus Museum of Art website.

#1 North Market
Ohio's only public market is in Columbus and certainly worth a walk through. North Market was first established in 1876 and is home to more than 30 vendors selling a range of products, including fresh meat, produce, baked goods, cheese and flowers. On select Saturdays, a portion of the market is set up outside, and on Sundays in June to October local artwork, furniture, jewelry and more is also on display.
Visitors say this market provides a wonderful food selection at affordable prices. Many were impressed with the sheer variety of cuisine types represented at this small market, and say there's something for everyone here. A few warn that the market gets quite congested on the weekends, so it's best to arrive early or visit on a weekday to beat the crowds.
