The Taft Museum of Art

Cincinnati’s three major art museums closed to the public this month for a break as COVID cases surge.

The Cincinnati Art Museum and Center for Contemporary Art have reopened, with the CAC returning to a timed ticketing format, while the Taft Museum of Art has decided to extend its closure.

On social media, the Taft wrote: “Despite our hopes to reopen to the public on January 14, with updated advice from local and national health institutions, we choose to postpone the museum’s opening to the public until Friday 21 January (barring unforeseen circumstances).”

This means Taft will reschedule or hold its public events, tours and programs online. You can also view works from their permanent collection or take a self-guided virtual tour on their website.

The Taft is currently in the process of a bicentennial infrastructure project to help preserve and restore the historic house in which it sits. Part of Taft’s collection is currently on display at the Cincinnati Museum Center in the exhibit Borrowed Gems.
