History:  

The Columbus Museum of Art was founded in 1878 as the Columbus Gallery of Fine Arts. The museum was the first art museum to file a charter with Ohio, making it officially the oldest art museum in the state. The original museum was located inside the Sessions Mansion; which stood on the grounds of the present day building. The current structure was designed by architects Richards, McCarty and Dulford; and opened to the public on 22 January 1931. The main entrance doors to the museum are from the Sessions Mansion; saved before it was leveled to make way for the new construction.

The Columbus Museum of Art was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1992.
