This was my second visit to the Taft, a charming little museum in the heart of Cincy. I made a special trip just for the Downton costume exhibit which was almost as cozy as binge-watching the show itself. The displays ran the gamut from Anna's evening uniform to Sybil's nurse's uniform, to the men's town and country suits and of... 更多
Took the 5 grandkids here for an outing last summer. They loved seeing the drawings for Carol-Annes Carosel. We had visited Smale Park and the Carosel earlier in the month! BUT the best part was the docent's lecture on Wm Howard Taft! They were rapt by his personality,his contribution to society and to Cincinnati and they knew that he invented... 更多
They should just go ahead and call this a gallery, because it's not really somewhere that you go to experience art. You get docents looking down their nose at you if you even touch and wall and there is really not anything for kids to do besides silently look at the art. The docents have all the charm of a... 更多
The Museum was so interesting and the special Downton Abbey Exhibit was worth the trip. The Tea room for afternoon tea was closed by the time we were finished seeing the museum, but the gift shop had some things.
Having a couple of hours to spare before my flight, I decided to walk to the museum. So glad I did...there was a Downton Abbey display along with the regular museum collections. What a beautiful, unique collection of art. Paintings, furniture and all manner of Chinese art made up the offerings. I thoroughly enjoyed my time spent there.
I recently visited the Taft Museum of Art to take in the Dressing Downton (Abbey) Fashions Traveling Exhibit. I was impressed with many things. The staff and volunteers were very knowledgeable about the traveling exhibit contents, history, use in the TV series and the selection of venues to house the exhibit. The museum itself is lovely and has nice collections... 更多
Great small museum! The collection is very diverse, from 15thC Dutch painting to 14thC religious art, to ceramics from China. Its worth a short trip. We spent maybe a hour or two here. Photography is allowed and there is a restaurant with a wonderful patio, which had a band.
Went to the Downton Abbey show with my sister and had a wonderful time. It was her first time visiting the Taft and she was very impressed at how beautiful and interesting it is.
We, too, came for the Downton exhibit, and it was our first visit to the museum. The museum is in the beautiful historic home of the prominent Cincinnati Tafts (relatives of the former president) plus a new addition and houses some lovely and interesting pieces. The Downton exhibit was very interesting and nicely correlated with historic world and Cincinnati events.... 更多
