  • 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
