For nearly 50 years, The Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA, to locals) has been unlike any other cultural institution in Cleveland. It does not feature a permanent collection, changing up its exhibitions three times a year. All that swapping out means MOCA has seen scores of some of the most important names in the contemporary art world — in many cases, through the artists’ first solo shows.

What You'll See:
- MOCA is a work of art in and of itself. In 2012, the museum moved into its new home — the mirror-like, 34,000-square-foot, glass-and-steel urban jewel that seems to rise out of nowhere at the corner of Euclid Ave. and Mayfield Road in University Circle. Once inside, climb the angular, zig-zagging main staircase to get a completely different perspective on the structure.
What Else to Do?
- MOCA offers a number of unique before- and after-hours events for adults, including Saturday-morning yoga classes and themed silent disco dance parties, as well as artist talks and learning programs.
