Tucked away in downtown Cincinnati, the Taft Museum of Art is a living landmark where art and history live on the walls—and in the walls. Built around 1820 as a private home, the Taft Museum of Art is now one of the most esteemed small art museums in America. The museum is home to 17th to 19th century watches, Chinese porcelains and French Renaissance enamels. From June 11 through Sept. 4, Jane Austen fans can peruse the museum's newest exhibit, Fashion & Sensibility
, which features costumes worn in film adaptations of Austen's novels.
