  • Wonderful museum of the brother of President William Howard Taft. Really great art and ceramics. Amazing mosaics. When we visited, there was a special event of Tiffany glass that was just gorgeous. Nice gift shop, too. The Cafe was closed by the time we got done with the museum, so I can't comment on it.
  • Love the antique Christmas display. They have wonderful famous artists displays that change. Great little restaurant and gift shop
  • Thanks to a grant, this museum is free on Sundays, along with its parking garage. :) It's a smaller art museum in a lovely historic building, with lovely pieces of art to visit. The site has an exhibit space for traveling exhibits; I have particularly enjoyed the historic quilt exhibits they have hosted. The decents are very friendly, and I spotted lots of families visiting. The museum schedules family activities at times; parents should check their site for good days to visit. Several of the docents stopped to chat with the teens in my group, which made them feel very welcome. They do have a cafe on site--the fare is more in the "treat" more expensive category for me--although I found a cup of soup option that was delicious and affordable. :) Families with kids will want to time their visits right after lunch, and grab food on the way home. (While there used to be a Wendy's walking distance from the site, it has closed. Many other spots near the site are not open on weekends.)
  • A great little museum. We loved both the antique Christmas display and the quilts. Always something to see beyond the normal art and the building itself. Do plan a visit.
  • A beautiful place like no other! One of the finest house museums in the country. The museum exhibits a world class collection of European paintings including Old Masters such as Rembrandt, Frans Hals, Jan Steen, as well as a fantastic collection of Chinese porcelains, timepieces, important American art - and all displayed within the Federal style house. Be sure to make a lunch reservation at the cafe and if the weather is nice then the garden terrace can’t be beat! You will love it.
