Here we are with another installment of 365 Things to do in Cincinnati and today I am highlighting some fun (and free!) things to do on Sundays at the Taft Museum of Art.
I am a huge fan of the Taft Museum of Art. I think my “fandom” results from the combination of the fabulous art paired with the history of the building/home. Not only was this actually the HOME of Charles and Anna Taft at one time (and also Nicholas Longworth before that), the majority of the collection in the museum actually belonged to the Taft family.
It’s a gorgeous place to visit when you want to admire the space, the art, the surroundings. But it’s especially great on Sundays. First off, the Taft is free on Sundays (and who doesn’t love free?!).
Among all the things you can do with your Sunday, pop in to see the wonderful paintings that inspired murals here in town and go see the murals after your visit. Can you tell which murals these works of art (below) inspired?
On any given Sunday, you can take the Taft Highlights Tour at 1:30pm. During this free half-hour tour, a Taft docent looks at a few of the highlights of the Museum collections.
And you won’t want to miss their “3rd Sunday Funday” celebrations (happening on the 3rd Sunday of the month, of course). These free Sunday afternoon programs offer great art, kid-sized art info, hands-on fun, and family-friendly performances. Most activities are ongoing, so you can drop in when you have time and stay as long as you like.
Museum founders Anna and Charles Taft were devoted supporters of music in the community and The Taft Museum of Art continues that tradition with a variety of concerts throughout the year, including the Sunday afternoon Chamber Music Series, the Fall Jazz Series, and Taft Sessions. ALL concerts are free and open to the public.
The Taft Museum of Art is located at 316 Pike Street, downtown. They offer free parking in the garage (which is behind the museum).
The Taft Museum of Art is FREE on Sundays.
The Taft Museum is CLOSED on Mondays and Tuesdays.
Hours and admission information can be found here.

Full Disclosure: This is a sponsored post, meaning we were compensated by the Taft Museum of Art and were asked to promote their Sunday events. I love the Taft and am happy to work with them in highlighting all they have to offer. These are all my own truthful and heartfelt opinions. You seriously need to go experience this place on a Sunday!
