I had forgotten what a beautiful treasure this museum is. Cincinnati is so fortunate to have been given this home and amazing collection of artwork. Even if you aren't an art fan just seeing the interior of this home is a treat. They even have a Rembrandt! Plan on visiting their wonderful gift shop and having lunch at their delicious... More

It's a great place for families looking for some culture. The entry fees are doable, and what you get for your money is the experience of a lifetime! You see beautiful works of art, from all around the world. My school, the Seven Hills Middle School, does many field trips to the Taft Museum of Art, and we collaborate with... More

House museum with a surprisingly diverse collection. The house alone is worth the visit. One Rembrandt and three by Franz Hals. Close to town, worth a 90 minute visit.

The museum offers a wonderful "Christmas of the Past" each December. Toys, decorations and ornaments from decades ago are displayed. It is interesting to see what was popular so long ago. **HINT**The museum is free on Sundays. This makes parking in the small garage difficult, but free and close parking on the street in available. For reasons I don't fully... More

Great afternoon experience. The aretwork is impressive for the museum size and the actual building and grounds are wonderful.

They were having a Western Art display during my visit. It was excellent and well staged. The balance of the museum is wonderful as well. The Taft is one of our favorites and we visit whenever possible on our short trips to Cincinnati.

I wish I could have spent longer here--lots to see and appreciate between the collection and the home itself that houses the collection. However, one of the most memorable experiences for me was reading through poetry written by middle-school kids after a visit here. I don't know if it's the quality of the teachers who brought the students to the... More

My family and I went here last Sunday after my husband's birthday lunch. This place is really nice. I loved the architect of the Taft house and the history behind it. The walls are simply stunning in the house area, they are the original murals on the walls. Simply stunning. The art is beautiful as well. Mrs. Taft was an... More

The Taft museum has some really cool pieces, and you can easily get through it in an hour or so. I would recommend going on Sunday because it's free, especially if you have a large group. We got there right when it opened, and it was like we had a private viewing of the place, really neat!
