“Very average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

A small museum, I expect I was there for less than half an hour. All the exhibits where located on the second floor of an old house. There are two parts one with black and white photographs of celebrities but the first half of the twentieth century like Fanny Brice etc. I found that the most interesting. The rest of the pieces were placed in rooms of the house and included painting and decorations. I don’t finally of these memorable. It’s probably worth seeing if your spending an extended time in Cincinnati but it would not be on the top of my list of places to see. Adequate parking. I was there on a Sunday and it was free.

“Corot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

The Taft museum was awesome. The collection of Corot's are better than what I have seen in Paris. I try to stop here every visit to Cincy.

“Taft lived up to its billing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Very nice and well organizes. I particularly like how the art was integrated into the home. I would recommend it and will return on a subsequent visit to Cincinnatti.
