Saturday, October 9
Join the Taft Museum of Art and explore Cincinnati’s first suburb, Mount Adams! The tour will visit “Mount Ida”—home of the first observatory in North America, made possible by early Taft historic house resident Nicholas Longworth’s donation of property—among many other “firsts” to sight-see during the one-mile walk. Guests will also discover surprising facts and folklore. Comfortable walking shoes are suggested as you will encounter some stairs, a few steps, and some moderately graded streets.
In case of inclement weather, these walking tours will be rescheduled for a later date.
$10 Taft members, $15 non-members. Reservations required.
Enjoy on-site docent-led tours of the Taft’s special bicentennial exhibition, In a New Light: Treasures from the Taft.
While the Taft historic house undergoes a major rehabilitation project, making it temporarily inaccessible to the public, audiences can explore the historic house and its esteemed artworks as they appeared prior to renovation efforts. Several of the works displayed in the virtual tour are also now on view within In a New Light: Treasures from the Taft and Borrowed Gems from the Taft Museum of Art.
