  • The entire place was dominated by the cafee and conference center. Outside was set up for a wedding and you could not see the terrace. The security was nuts. I felt like I was being watched every minu...  more »
  • This museum has an amazing collection. The nice thing is that it is small with great examples of art so it is not overwhelming. You can enjoy each piece and not get exhausted like with larger museums....  more »
  • I have been meaning to visit this museum for at least a decade, and today I finally made it in spite of the road construction. I was not sure what to expect and thought that I would be disappointed, b...  more »

  • A beautiful mansion turned Museum. A good place to visit if interested in history of Cincinnati. 3rd Sunday of each month is free entry. And they have musical shows and programs in the evening usually. On Sunday's around 11:30am, they have a event for kids in the basement. So make the most of your visit to Taft by planning ahead.
  • Special exhibit of posters from late 1800s to early 1900s is fabulous. Gives a real look into life at that time by combining art and marketing. Fresh and yummy lunch at the restaurant with outside seating in a lovely garden setting. Museum and paintings in old house are fabulous as always
  • Exquisite Art Museum full of history tucked away in a little corner downtown Cincinnati. Great place for an intimate wedding or private party. A relaxed, cultured step back in time. A nice change of pace from hustle bustle city life. There is also a quaint cafe with an adjoining gift shop. I highly recommend the tour an the staff is phenomenal.
  • Friendly, informative staff, including the museum director who took time to discuss Duncan Phyfe furniture, and the portrait that so captures the character you imagined Robert Louis Stevenson to be. I loved that this museum is a house, and feels like one, and that the art is offered in living-room sized chunks that I could digest. Immaculate presentation, great, varied collection and friendliest staff.
  • Beautiful works in a beautiful setting. Drove 5.5 hours to visit this museum & I would stop by again if I'm ever in town. The works are set beautifully in an old home. Staff & docents are very kind & readily available. (I did have one docent who I felt was following me around vs keeping an eye on the galleries, which was odd. He kept getting in the way of what I was trying to look at. When I would move down to look at the next work, he would not move. At least docents were available, but the stalking was awkward.)
