This place is a National Historic Landmark. Here you can find some impressive works by some of the Old masters, and some impressive furniture. Love the Statue out the front of Abe Lincoln by George Grey Barnard.

Went once on a field trip with elementary students - but made a point to go back again on my own. A lovely museum, well curated and stunning venue.

I love visiting the Taft. The exhibits are interesting and the layout is wonderful. After seeing an exhibit, its always enjoyable to walk through the historic part of the museum, which is the former home of President Taft. The food in the cafe is excellent!

If you are short on time and have a love for great art, this is the place. It is one of America's great small museums. There is also a sweet cafe that has great food. Remember Sundays are free.

Mainly went for the 'Bijoux Parisienne' display, which costs a little extra, but covers a wide historical range of beautiful, high-end jewellery. If you go on a Sunday, I think you only have to pay for the special exhibits - the rest of the museum...More
