Cleveland had an incredible summer of culture, with lots of special events and exhibitions that put the city even more in the forefront of the cultural scene.

From “Hamilton” to the Infinity Mirrors exhibit to the Asian Lantern Festival, there was so much culture to take in at some of Cleveland’s finest institutions.

So, how can you keep the cultural momentum going this fall? I have some suggestions!

See a Show

Whether or not you were able to score tickets to the cultural phenomenon that is “Hamilton,” there are plenty of options to take in a show at Playhouse Square.

There’s the KeyBank Broadway Series, with shows like the launch of the national tour of “Hello Dolly,” the classic “Les Miserables,” and the stirring modern shows “Dear Evan Hansen” and “Come From Away.”

There also is the Children’s Theater Series, with shows like “The Rainbow Fish” and “The Ugly Duckling.”

The whole family can find amazing opportunities for culture at Playhouse Square.

Look at Art

Infinity Mirrors brought a whole new level of exposure and excitement to one of the world’s best art museums.

The Cleveland Museum of Art has amazing upcoming exhibitions, as well as an incredible permanent collection.

The biggest thing I learned from taking Jeffrey to Infinity Mirrors was that children have an amazing capacity to appreciate culture (and actually follow “don’t-touch-this” rules.) If you’re wondering if your child could enjoy or appreciate an exhibition, I encourage you to do your research on the subject matter and give it a try!

Go to the Zoo, Zoo, Zoo

The Asian Lantern Festival was a spectacular sight, but there’s plenty of culture built into a Cleveland Metroparks Zoo visit anytime.

Take the time to read the signs in the various animal exhibits, particularly Australian Adventure, African Elephant Crossing, and Asian Highlands. Not only can you see great animals, you can learn about the regions and cultures in which these animals live.

You can enjoy extraordinary culture in Cleveland anytime, not only when there are special events.
