I lived in Cincinnati but never went here until a friend took us on a return visit. What a delight. A lovely place with great art and furnishings. Classy gift shop. If you are downtown you can walk here or easy parking underground. Do see.

The Taft Museum is one of the gems of Cincinnati that may not get much play. We have never been disappointed in visiting this intimate museum. The collection is diverse and the rotating exhibitions well done. Not always easy to find for the first time...More
