Mission: To provide meaningful experiences by connecting people with great art, both in a historic setting and in the community.

Serving Our Community:

The Taft Museum of Art is a living landmark in downtown Cincinnati where art lives on the walls—and in the walls. Built around 1820 as a private home for several of Cincinnati’s most prominent citizens, the Taft Museum of Art is now one of the finest small art museums in America and holds National Historic Landmark status for its historic house and Duncanson murals.

Connected by our 2001–2004 expansion, guests can also always enjoy special exhibitions, the historic outdoor garden, our Museum Shop and Lindner Family Café, events, and programming for all ages virtually and in-person.

Staying connected to the community is part of our mission, and we are reinventing experiences amid the pandemic. The Taft’s educational programs have reached over 3,000 individuals: elementary students through Art For All Outreach, high-school students through our award-winning Artists Reaching Classrooms program, and teachers and schools across the region. Virtually, the Taft has reached more than 62,000 individuals through extended programming, including Family Fundays, providing funding to artists through Virtual Studios, and diving deeper into our permanent collection and special exhibitions through Taft Chats—among many other diverse and enriching programs.
