Our collection, special exhibitions, Museum Shop, and the Lindner Family Café reside within the intimate setting of our circa 1820 historic house and modern museum wing, which conveniently connects with our covered parking garage. We encourage you to review our visitor information prior to your arrival.
Please Note: Policies are subject to change. The most up-to-date information can be found on this page.
The Taft's Visitor Experience and Security teams are here to provide care and protection to the visitors, collection, and historic house. Our dedicated staff is here to help provide you with assistance, direction or answer any questions or concerns during your visit. So they can provide you with great service, remember that:
The Taft reserves the right to refuse entry to any visitor carrying a prohibited item. All bags and containers of any type are subject to security inspection.
We recommend that groups of 10 or more contact the museum prior to arrival. While we do try to accommodate groups without advance registration, admission is not guaranteed due to capacity and program restrictions.
The museum is accessible to visitors with limited mobility. Elevators and lifts, restrooms, parking, wheelchairs, and ramps are available.
Visitors of all ages are welcome at the Taft! Ask our Visitor Experience team about ways to experience our collection and special exhibitions during your visit.
Unwind and dine in the café and on our patio (weather permitting) with artfully prepared meals, including delicious vegetarian and vegan options. Members enjoy a 10 percent discount. Reservations are strongly encouraged.
Choose from books, stationery, jewelry, and unique handcrafted gifts. Members enjoy a 10 percent discount on purchases and special offers throughout the year.
The coatroom and lockers are located on the first floor. Coats may not be carried through the galleries. Please plan on wearing your coat while touring the galleries or leave it in the coatroom. Backpacks, packages, diaper bags, and laptop bags smaller than 11 x 15 inches may be carried in the galleries.
If you have left something behind at the museum, please contact Security at (513) 352-5149.
Wheelchairs are available on a first-come, first-served basis; just ask the Visitor Experience team. Lightweight umbrella strollers or soft-front infant carriers may be taken throughout the museum.
Diaper changing stations are available on both the first and second floors of the museum.
The museum is a smoke-free facility. Smoking and vaping are not permitted anywhere in the museum or on our campus.
Our intimate house setting allows visitors to see art and furnishings close up. Please help us preserve the house and collection for future generations by remembering not to touch or brush against the works of art, historic furniture, or window treatments. Touching leaves traces of natural oils and acids that can damage artworks, fabrics, and other surfaces.
You are welcome to sketch in the galleries using graphite pencils and drawing boards, clipboards, and sketch pads that do not exceed 15×16 inches. Please do not use pens, markers, crayons, charcoals, colored pencils, chalks, or pastels.
Non-flash personal photography and video in the galleries are encouraged. Any restrictions on photography will be clearly identified. Professional video cameras, tripods, monopods, selfie sticks, and opened laptops may not be taken into the galleries and special exhibition areas.
The Taft Museum of Art routinely takes images and video for use in marketing materials and on the museum's communication platforms. Please be advised that promotional images and video may be captured during your visit or attendance to a museum program or event. Registration or ticket purchase through the museum constitutes acceptance of this policy. If you wish to avoid the possibility that you might appear in an image used for Taft promotional purposes, please alert the program manager/photographer upon arrival.
Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the first floor of the museum, including the Lindner Family Café, Luther Hall, Rowe Long Family Garden, and terrace.
